The Lyrics

Woo Hoo Hooooo?

Woo hoo wooooo!

Lincoln just hit the wall,
He never had it all,
One racist a day,
Best man's a KKK,

His plans went out the door,
When he turned 44,
Trying to end a war,
Like the presidents of before,

He was gonna be a hero,
He was gonna be so glad,
He was gonna tip his hat,
To the soldiers of blue-black plaid,
His lovely country's now,
The final battleground,
Looks at his stressful life,
And nothin, has been
all right since

Jim Crow laws, The Keatons,
Way before John Wilke's Booth
There was peace time, and laughter
The Underground railroad was made
His two friends, at Westpoint, they tell
Him that he's uptight, cause he's still
Preoccupied, with 18,18, 1885, (1885)

He knows all the tactics, he knows every
move, "Flank "em" & "Hit the ground",
even "Lay some fire down",
never a fighting man,
not a big pro-slavery fan,
never wanted a single hand,
from the members of the Ku Klux Klan,

Mr. President, may I ask you, if you know that man
who is standing right behind you?
You know reality, was never easy,
What ever happened to good men, peace talks,
(on the telegram were)

Crow laws, The Keatons,
Way before John Wilke's Booth
There was peace time, and laughter
The underground railroad was made
His two friends at westpoint,
They tell him that he's uptight,
Cause he's still preoccupied, with 18, 18, 1885
(1885)

He hates war, make it end,
When did all the South start to walk into the deep
End?
And when did Johnny, become an actor?


Please make this stop, stop, STOP(tick tick tick) AND KEEP BACK


Crow laws, The Keatons,
Way before John Wilke's Booth
There was peace time, and laughter
The underground railroad was made
His two friends at westpoint,
They tell him that he's uptight,
Cause he's still preoccupied, with 18, 18, 1885
(1885)

Woo Hoo Hoo!

Crow laws, The Keatons,
Way before John Wilke's Booth
There was peace time, and laughter
The underground railroad was made
His two friends at westpoint,
They tell him that he's uptight,
Cause he's still preoccupied, with 18, 18, 1885
(1885)

I almost figured out what this was about (3 times) then decided I was still confused. That's probably for the best. Nice pacing tho' and funny in a weird way.

I know really, what was Lincoln thinking he's so arcane. I on the other hand am preoccupied with 1995. That's when my dad spent about six months fixing his rental property really nice and some stupid smoked out crack head renters trashed it In three freaking months. Three freaking months I tell you. And then they skipped on the rent. So what the hell could he do after that? Did he become a racist because they happened to be black... no! He just got smarter. He asked for more deposit money upfront. And only dealt with people that were upfront. Not someone who hinted around. People who hint around are untrustworthy in my book. DT says: "Some of my best investments, where the ones I never made." Hershel Walker knows this to be true.

Lincoln was assasinated on the evening of April 14, 1865. Next time to do your research.

The Fan Man: "Next time to do your research" doesn't make sense. Next time use grammar

Fan Man: Confusing as it was, even _I_ figured out this was NOT about Lincoln's assassination. Pay more attention!
