The Lyrics

Give us a soapbox for a parody
He ain't got time to censor free speach
Internet has come, we're submitting songs
Dear Chucky, has made us all authors

We don't care how such lyrics wiill weave or spin
Got to speak out on the system
Trouble times have come, we're are picking bones
'Cause Chucky, just made us all authors

Well he made us all authors
'Cause he couldn't host without our lyrics born
Listen, people, can't you see we've got to give back
To dear Chucky some more--anyway

Give us a soapbox for a parody
He ain't got time to censor free speach
Internet has come, we're submitting songs
Dear Chucky, has made us all authors
