The Lyrics

We damn well sure know what is fated to come:
He’ll force on them the socialist way, hey!
To Fidel, Mao, and Stalin they’ll kowtow,
Be brainwashed. . .abortion and gays OK.

Indoctrination, indoctrination—
Make way for the state
To teach masturbation.

Then he’ll tell ’em that mommies/daddies—it’s alright to have two,
And right to bear arms just shouldn’t be.
He’ll rehearse ’em in lies ’bout the FAR right
And try to put the kibosh on Ron idolatry.

Indoctrination, indoctrination—
We prate: “Hate the state;
This teaching’s damnation!!”

Indoctrination, indoctrination—
WE’LL teach ’em to hate
This evil damn nation!

For a tomorrow free, we band together
To fight this prophet of unnatural ways.
Higher education?!! God and guns, we vow;
That’s the higher power. . .same thing anyways.

The same thing anyways.
Were Jesus here, he would use a Glock these days. . .
Wait, what is it we say?!
Glock’s made where people pay
Taxes that are high, way!*
There, there’s socialist ways.
No guns made here these days.
“Made in China,” they say;
That’s where commies hold sway;
“Hecho. . .” down south, they say.
NAFTA! That’s Clinton’s way!!
What can we do but bray
And keep the kids away
Indoctrination day?

You have really doctrined up this OS quite well Sir John. The kids are the true targets of indoctrination - guys like me they won't waste their time on - they'll just take me out back and shoot me because I will never "kowtow" to the almighty and the thousand czars I despise. Write on!

Just think what the speech would have been like had not people gotten wind of it (and the accompanying lesson plans). The final speech was pretty much written to appeal to conservatives, IMHO. Unfortunately, whenever I hear this OS, I already think red. ;-)

Yikes to OMR'S comment that I echo above! Great write, John! Love the two mommies/daddies line! 555's!

At the high school, the principal sent an e-mail that if teachers were planning to use the speech and/or lesson plans, that they'd need to be cleared through the office first. A LOT of parent calls, it seems. They did show the speech at the end of each lunch, though, so kids could watch if they wished.

@ OMR: No, not tested on animals. Only tested on Conservatives. That'll be alright with everyone, won't it? ;)

No conservatives were harmed in the writing of this parody. Wish we could say the same for the doctrines.

Is there a doctrine in the house?
