Parody Song Title:
"Battle of Katrina"
Parody Written by:
Teresa Thornton Davis
Back in 2005, we had a mental slip
And didn't think a hurricane would flood the Mississip'
Water broke all the levees and it rushed down all the streets
When Katrina hit New Orleans, the rain came down in sheets.
Moved to the second floor, the water kept a-comin'
"bout a half foot higher than it was a while ago.
Moved to the attic, the water kept a-risin'
Now we are living in the Gulf of Mexico.
Seems George W. was taken by surprise
Finally flew to Washington over cloudy skies
While thousands waited for the help that never came
Our so-called leaders searched for someone else to blame.
SPOKEN: (what a dirty rotten shame!)
Hoodlums took the streets to loot and shoot and rape
Bureaucrats began to sift through mountains of red tape.
On the nightly news, we saw their faces well.
We watched as the Superdome became a living hell.
Relief eventually got here, although it seemed so slow,
But when the busses loaded, there was nowhere they could go.
The nice folks in Houston took as many as they could,
Hard cots and clean toilets had never looked so good.
It seemed all the victims were desperate, black, and poor.
What made 'em think that capitalism promised any more?
While mothers missing children survived the best they could,
Barbara Bush observed that it'd worked out pretty good.
Though FEMA fumbled, we all got out of town,
But we found our families were scattered all around.
Our nation stretched its good will as far as it could reach,,,
Then our clueless president gave a semi-moving speech.
We all know New Orleans will soon be on the mend.
And we hope that our little song might have a happy end.
If only some will remember the moral of this tale,
And go to the voting booth and give the Bushies ha-a-a-e-e-e-e-----l-l!
Once upon a time we trusted in our government.
But we're a whole lot smarter than we were a while ago.
And we're here to remind you, if you care to hear it,
Always remember that hurricanes BLOW!!
