The Lyrics

A conservative classic...!?
A long, long, time from now in a future not so far away
Our health insurance will be under attack
And government will have control,
And tell it’s people where to go,
And they’ll be no way that anyone can fight back..

That November day made me shiver,
With every news cast that was delivered
Bad news all over the door step,
I was to afraid to take one more step…

I can’t remember if I cried when I heard all about that Obama guy,
But something touched me deep inside the day America died...

Hello Mr. Socialist Guy,
Throw our freedoms down the drain and kiss them goodbye!
Maybe later they’ll return but for now break a sigh,
Saying, “Soon we might get rid of this guy!”

Now do you wanna rewrite the book of Marx?
Or do you have faith in government above?
If Lenin tells you so…
Do you believe in the commie role?
Did Russia save your commie soul?
And of course dictators rise real slow…

Well I know that you’re really thin,
I saw you working out in the gym..
playing b-ball in the room,
Dig those Air Jordan shoes!

I’m a lonely American without a job
With a pink slip notice and no gas in my truck
Yeah, I knew I was out of luck,
The day America died!

I started singin

Hello Mr. Socialist Guy,
They’ll throw our freedoms down the drain and kiss them goodbye!
Maybe later they’ll return but for now break a sigh,
Saying, “Soon we might get rid of this guy!”
Soon we might get rid of this guy!

Now for four years we will be all alone,
Interrupted by some brainwashed drones
But that’s not how it should always be!
Yeah Cheavez sits with a royal key,
Chosen for life we’re on bended knee
If you protest he’ll shoot you and me!

And if you’re caught looking down,
He’ll throw you out of his Vene town,
Murmuring all your concerns,
They’ll wash away and burn!
And while Obama speaks outside Grant Park
Reading from a prompter in the dark!
I sit and sleep with a broken heart!
The day America Died!

I started singin’

Hello Mr. Socialist Guy,
They’ll throw our freedoms down the drain and kiss them goodbye!
Maybe later they’ll return but for now break a sigh,
Saying, “Soon we might get rid of this guy!”
Soon we might get rid of this guy!

Mortgage shelter in a private sector,
Risky loans by a government affecter
Houses flying high and falling fast!
The stakes landed in the grass,
The government tried to cover it’s ass,
But instead bailout was the vast!

Now the full time con is in sweet view,
Oh, Barney Frank, what will he do?
We all wanna dance,
those losers never had a chance!
And while he sits with empathy for the heels
Rick Santelli refuses to yield!
Do you see what is now revealed…
The day America died?

We started singin’

Hello Mr. Socialist Guy,
They’re throwing our freedoms down the drain and kiss them goodbye!
Maybe later they’ll return but for now break a sigh,
Saying, “Soon we might get rid of this guy!”
Soon we might get rid of this guy!

And there they are all in one place,
A government that’s clueless in space
No time left to start again…
So come on conservatives let’s be quick
A tea party sounds like a real good fix!
Cause power is a Democrat’s only friend!

Oh, and as I watch him on that stage,
His lies deceive us all with rage,
No American is ever well,
When it enslaves our liberty bell!
And as the Marxists climb high into the night,
To discard all our individual rights,
I saw Stalin laughing with delight,
The day America died!
He started singin

Hello Mr. Socialist Guy,
I’ll throw your freedoms down the drain and kiss them goodbye!
Maybe later they’ll return but for now break a sigh,
You’re Saying, “Soon we might get rid of this guy!”
Soon we might get rid of this guy!

I met another American who sang my blues,
I asked him for some happy news
He tried to smile but then turned away
I went down to the McDonalds next door,
Where I would go years before,
But the men there said the government taxed them away…

And in the streets some protests speak,
Media hides and the liberals creep
Not a word was spoken,
Because government has over token
And the three men that I admire most,
Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and the Reagan ghost,
They’re all gone and now we’re toast!
The day America died!

And they were singin

Bye, bye, all our capital pie!
They’re throwing our freedoms down the drain and kissing them goodbye!
Maybe later they’ll return but for now break a sigh,
Saying, “Soon we might get rid of this guy!”
Soon we might get rid of this guy!


And they were singin’

Bye, bye, all our capital pie!
They’re throwing our freedoms down the drain and kissing them goodbye!
Maybe later they’ll return but for now break a sigh,
Saying, “Soon we might get rid of this guy!”
Soon we might get rid of this guy!

Awfully paced. I could not get it matching to the original. The lyrics themselves were mere ranting and neither funny nor witty. 2-3-2

I think the original was a lot of rantingand raving too. Only the Buddy Holly line stood out for me. The rest was all about how music the sixties screwed up an entire generation. BTW, who said the truth ha to be funny? :)

Gipper, if you are not funny, be at least witty. The original song is witty. Tommy Turtle has done a great job with his "My Disfavoured Things" - now that is witty. On the pacing issue: try listening to the original and humming your song with the melody in karaoke style. Now you are attempting to cram four syllables into where the original has only two: "the day when music died" as "the day when America died" - you could have better well with "the day when U.S. died". I couldn't manage to sing along your version.

more misdirected right wing hackery.....amazing how the working class is so easily manipulated to vote against its self interest.....like sheep to the slaughter.
