The Lyrics

For those of you unfamiliar with the Tent City prisons of Maricopa County, AZ, and their overzealous sheriff Joe Arpaio, let's put it this way: too much of a good thing isn't necessarily good. "Tough on crime" can be very bad news if the accused happens to be innocent, or if the law itself is what's wrong. That notwithstanding, please note the author does not condone the use of illegal fireworks.
He set off some rockets bursting into the sky.
But Phoenix banned fireworks and he didn't know why,
It was the Fourth of July, he didn't know it was a crime,
But they arrested him west of the Maricopa County line.
The fierce heat of the afternoon baked his tent,
If you broke the law here that was where you went.
They fed him green bologna for suppertime,
He shoulda stayed east of the Maricopa County line.

I have pictures of the Tent City hellhole
Taken for the Limbaugh show
These pictures and these photographs,
Let me know he got the shaft.
Rush used to make me happy once upon a time,
But the truth lies west of the Maricopa County line.

The two of us believed nothin' but the Right,
Feeling patriotic Independence night.
Busted for celebrating, he's doing time,
In an Auschwitz west of the Maricopa County line.

I have pictures of the Tent City hellhole
Taken for the Limbaugh show
These pictures and these photographs,
Let me know he got the shaft.
Rush used to make me happy once upon a time,
But the truth lies west of the Maricopa County line.

I don't listen to Rush much these days.
I just pray to God and count the days.
Busted by a cop supposedly just passing by,
Now he wear pinks underwear and watches the sky.

Shooting rockets on the 4th of July,
Wish the rockets had hit the sheriff in the eye.
Talk about our freedom is such a lie

I have pictures of the Tent City hellhole
Taken for the Limbaugh show
These pictures and these photographs,
Let me know he got the shaft.
Guess that's what they mean by being "tough on crime,"
He shoulda stayed east of the Maricopa County line.

The fascists rule west of the Maricopa County line.
The Maricopa County line.
The Maricopa County line.
The Maricopa County line.
2004 Michael W. McVey
