The Lyrics

Those of you who know your rock 'n' roll history know that Lynyrd Skynyrd's song "Sweet Home Alabama" was written as a response to Neil Young's songs "Alabama" and "Southern Man," which criticized the American South and the state of Alabama for racism, right? Now I am NOT a racist. I am not writing this song from my own point of view but from the viewpoints of members of Lynyrd Skynyrd who were offended by Mr. Young's songs. The reason that Canada is mentioned in the chorus, of course, is because Neil Young is Canadian. This is what Cee-Lo Green's song "F*** You" would sound like if it were written by members of Lynyrd Skynyrd in response to Neil Young instead of them having written "Sweet Home Alabama."
I heard you singing bad things 'bout the state I love
And I'm like, "F*** you!"
I guess the music we made, it just wasn't enough
I'm like, "F*** you
And f*** Canada too!"
If we were Northern, they'd like us better
Ain't that some s*** (Ain't that some s***)
Putting my home state first, I must wish you the worst
With a "F*** you!"

Now Neil, I'm sorry 'bout all the racism
Going on down in Alabama there
We're more American, and you're Canadian
But still the way you put us down ain't fair

Now I pity the fool who listens to your tunes
(Oh s*** they're Dixie-haters, you're music's so overrated)
Oooooh, I got some news for you
I'm gonna tell all of your fans

I heard you singin' bad things 'bout the state I love
And I'm like "F*** you!"
I guess the music we made, it just wasn't enough
I'm like "F*** you
And f*** Canada too!"
If we were Northern, they'd like us better
Ain't that some s*** (Ain't that some s***)
Putting my home state first, I must wish you the worst
With a "F*** you!"

Now I know, I had to work hard
Just to sell some decent songs
Trying to make Southern Rock records
I don't see why that's so wrong

Now, I pity the fool who listens to your tunes
(Oh s*** they're Dixie-haters, your music's so overrated)
Oooooooh, I got some news for you
I wanna kick your a** right now

I heard you singin' bad things 'bout the state I love
And I'm like "F*** you!"
I guess the music we made, it just wasn't enough
I'm like "F*** you
And f*** Canada too!"
If we were Northern, they'd like us better
Ain't that some s*** (Ain't that some s***)
Putting my home state first, I must wish you the worst
With a "F*** you!"

Now really, really, really, why'd ya have to write that song "Southern Man?"
(Southern Man, Southern Man)
I tried to tell my roadies but they told me "This is one for your fans."
(Your fans, Your fans, Your fans)
I'm like why, why, why,
I hate you, Neil I hate you, ohhhhh

I heard you singin' bad things 'bout the state I love
And I'm like "F*** you!"
I guess the music we made, it just wasn't enough
I'm like "F*** you
And f*** Canada too!"
If we were Northern, they'd like us better
Ain't that some s*** (Ain't that some s***)
Putting my home state first, I must wish you the worst
With a "F*** you!"

F**k Alabama. In fact, f**k the whole South. Should have let 'em secede.

Seriously, Jojojo, if you had repeated "FU Neil Young" a hundred times in a row and told me it was a parody of "Mary Had a Little Lamb" I still would have given you three fives. Cause that's the kind of Neil Young fan I AM! Now get out of here, you leftie bashing knucklehead ;-D
