Plucky: Woof! You sure gotta climb a lot of steps to get to this Capitol Building here in Washington. But I wonder who that sad little scrap of paper is?

Hamton: (singing) I'm just a bill. Yes, I'm only a bill. And I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill. Well, it's a long, long journey To the capital city. It's a long, long wait While I'm sitting in committee, But I know I'll be a law someday At least I hope and pray that I will, But today I am still just a bill.

Plucky: Gee, Bill, you certainly have a lot of patience and courage.

This is who Hamton playes as.

Hamton: Well I got this far. When I started, I wasn't even a bill, I was just an idea. Some folks back home decided they wanted a law passed, so they called their local Congressman and he said, "You're right, there oughta be a law." Then he sat down and wrote me out and introduced me to Congress. And I became a bill, and I'll remain a bill until they decide to make me a law.

(singing) I'm just a bill Yes I'm only a bill, And I got as far as Capitol Hill. Well, now I'm stuck in committee And I'll sit here and wait While a few key Congressmen discuss and debate Whether they should let me be a law. How I hope and pray that they will, But today I am still just a bill.

Plucky: Listen to those congressmen arguing! Is all that discussion and debate about you?

Hamton: Yeah, I'm one of the lucky ones. Most bills never even get this far. I hope they decide to report on me favourably, otherwise I may die.

Plucky: Die?

Hamton: Yeah, die in committee.

Bugs Bunny: Bill Your up!

Hamton: Oooh, but it looks like I'm gonna live! Now I go to the House of Representatives, and they vote on me.

Plucky: If they vote yes, what happens?

Hamton: Then I go to the Senate and the whole thing starts all over again.

Plucky: Oh no!

Hamton: Oh yes!


I'm just a bill Yes, I'm only a bill And if they vote for me on Capitol Hill Well, then I'm off to the White House Where I'll wait in a line With a lot of other bills For the president to sign And if he signs me, then I'll be a law. How I hope and pray that he will, But today I am still just a bill.

Plucky: You mean even if the whole Congress says you should be a law, the president can still say no?

Hanton: Yes, that's called a veto. If the President vetoes me, I have to go back to Congress and they vote on me again, and by that time you're so old...

Plucky: By that time it's very unlikely that you'll become a law. It's not easy to become a law, is it?

Hamton: No!

(singing) But how I hope and I pray that I will, But today I am still just a bill.

Bugs Bunny: He signed you, Bill! Now you're a law!

Hamton: Oh yes!!!
