The Lyrics

In honor of Trent Lott's recent racist comments
(To the Tune of "Tradition" from Fiddler on the Roof)

Who in 48 fought against segregation
Schools for white skinned children, play on racist fears
And Who fought for rights as master of the race
To have the final word on hate
Strom Thurmond, Strom Thurmond - Tradition! (2x)

Who must know the way keep history right
A righteous fight to keep things white
Who must raise the issue now and say it's good
So Strom is free to go out justified
The Trent Lott, The Trent Lott - Tradition! (2x)

You see I loved that Bob Jones School, where racism maintained
I hear they've let them integrate, it's such a pity
Bob Jones, Bob Jones - Tradition! (2x)

And what does all this teach the young kids who hear this
Preparing them to vote for whatever Trent Lott picks
The Children, The Children - Tradition! (2x)

I had to sing the original 2 years ago for a school production. This is fantastic!
