The Lyrics

My Dad's brother Sam was an American Veteran who passed away years ago while marching in his hometown's Memorial Day parade. My Uncle Sam would host a family reunion pig-roast barbecue at his home every year on the Fourth of July. Uncle Sam was a mountain of a man ... a physically huge guy with a heart to match. The first part of this parody is dedicated to my beloved Uncle Sam, and is absolutely true ... the second part of this parody is absolutely false ... or is it ?
You can get
Any pig you choose
At Uncle Sam's barbecues

You can get
Any pig you choose
At Uncle Sam's
Bar-be-cues

On
The
Fourth
Of July each year

Sam would host the clan, grinnin' ear-to-ear!

You can get
Any pig you choose
At Uncle Sam's barbecues

[---then it comes around again on the guitar---]

You can get
Any King you want
At Uncle Sam's Restaurant

Candidates'
Menus sing and flaunt
At Uncle Sam's
Res-tau-rant

G-O-P
Or
A De-mo-crat

Bust a happy smile, chum, and hang your chad!

You can get
Any King you want
At Uncle Sam's Restaurant

...some Nader-Kerry-Dubya fun...

At Uncle Sam's...Res-tau-rant!

Cute. Didja read the Alice's Restaurant parody elsewhere on the site that somehow managed to cover the entire 18 minute saga? I hear the author is still in recuperation. ;)
