SALT LAKE CITY -- They don't just pass bills on Utah's Capitol Hill. Thursday Senate took time from its official business to hear a special performance from one of their own.

On Thursday, Sen. Dan Liljenquist, R-Bountiful, sang "Senate Man" at the request of his colleagues.

Sen. Liljenquist called it the "worst hazing of a freshman" in the history of the Senate. Yet he continued singing.

His singing, a parody of "Piano Man" ripped colleagues like Jon Greiner, R-Ogden, and Curt Bramble, R-Provo.

He also quipped in the song about Senator Lyle Hillyard "cutting jobs with his highlighter pen." Hillyard is the Executive Appropriations Co-Chair.

He originally performed the song at a Davis County Lincoln Day dinner. Senator Jon Greiner described it to the Deseret News as, "truly inspirational."

Liljenquist is a rising star, at least on YouTube, where the views of his performance continue to grow. As of 1:50 p.m. Friday, "Senate Man" had recorded over 200 views on Youtube.
