Tampa, Florida (CNN) – Not many people would associate Newt Gingrich with rap music, but now one can, thanks to three enterprising Florida teenagers who wrote "Hoot for Newt."
"Yeah hoot, hoot, hoot. Hey everybody vote for Newt," is the chorus concocted by St. Lucie 18-year-olds James Johnson, Franco Hurtado, and Tyler Arcia.

People who showed up early for Gingrich's speech in Port St. Lucie heard the song for the first time. The song did not play while Gingrich was at the event but they presented him with a CD afterward.
Johnson's mother, Robin, is a Gingrich county co-chair and was involved in organizing the "two scoops for Newt" event at the PGA Center for Golf and Learning.
Robin said her son and his friends often jam together and suggested they write something original for the event.
Among the song's lyrics:
"Go ahead ask what your country can do for you because anything's possible with president Newt. Yeah, so get up off your feet. Get up on the street and tell everyone you meet.
'Hoot, hoot, hoot. Hey everybody vote for Newt."
"Rap's kind of new to us. We're all rockers," said James, who wrote and recorded the song in one night during a sleepover with his friends.
"We were trying to think of a way to do publicity for Newt. All the kids listen to rap so that's what we did," he said.
Arcia could not make the event but Johnson and Hurtado got their picture taken with the presidential candidate.
Member of Gingrich's advance staff signed off on playing "Hoot for Newt" before the event. It likely won't replace the country music that plays in a loop at most events, but Johnson, Hurtado and Arcia's song is sure to make the rounds online.

Romney: Gingrich debates complaints like 'Goldilocks'
Palin decries GOP 'cannibalism,' defends Gingrich
Romney surrogates shadow Gingrich campaign
Yes, please do. Vote for Newt. This will pretty much guarantee Obama a second term, so vote away.
Vote for Newt! He's dishonest but he's white and not a Mormon!
Go to youtube and search "Ron Paul song" the search "Newt Gingrich song" and see who wins. Ron Paul has more grassroot songs/videos/art than the other candidates combined and you post a report on some rappers for Newt? Fail CNN.
Newt can inspire. Romney can fire.
"Yeah puke, puke, puke. Hey everybody boot the Newt,"
sound pretty stupid.
Don't vote for Newt, the GOP is hardly recovering from the laughing stock Bush made it. Newt would destory the GOP when he gets slaughtered by Obama in debates. Vote Ron Paul or at the very worst Rick Santorum. Mitt and Newt don't even represent anything to do with the GOP ideals.
Now isn't this clever...a way to creat a headline that suggests somehow a urban (euphasmism for Black) crowd would possibly vote for Newt Gingrich. Let me assure you, Newt couldn't buy a vote in a Black community, although I wouldn't put it past him or Romney to try. Newt epitomizes all that is wrong with politics - corruption, greed, divisiveness, pettiness and bigotry.
A rap sound for Newt! Foodstamp music is not appropriate
Wow, that's the worst thing I've heard online since Friday by Rebecca Black. Sorry kids, but you're not making Gingrich better, you're just making Hip Hop worse.
They are rapping for a war mongering lobbyist haha this is a joke!
am i the only one completely disgusted by this
SPOILER ALERT! They're white.
I'll hoot and vote for NEWT!!!!!!
How about ...
I don't give a hoot about Newt
The points he makes are moot
He got that look you in the eye,
as he steals your loot.
He's as ornery as they come,
he's just and angry old coot.
No I would never consider Newt.
Yeesh. Stay in school, kids.
I really do not give darn hoot for him. o.k,
A rap music song for Newt Gingrich; yet another sign of the Apocalypse.
Wow. Dumbest "rap" ever.
