Parody Written by:

Guy DiRito

The Lyrics

In Support Of Chief Justice Roy Moore.
The problem is they act like God's dead, unread they be.
They're acting sleasy, they can't see it ethically.
They cannot help it as they juggle common plea.
Just one of fifty ways to lose the culture.

You know it's silly how they stab at it so crude.
State of war, I know my leaning will so cause me to get booed.
But they saw no need to cover up that statue nude.
There's no real nifty way to move an icon.
Shifty ways to lose the culture.

Just move the knick-knack, Jack.
Use my step van, man.
Now just go redeploy, Roy.
Don't stay the decree.
Why make a fuss, Gus?
It's about to combust much.
It's not liberty, gee.
Why can't we agree?

Just move the knick-knack, Jack.
Use my step van, man.
Now just go redeploy, Roy.
Don't stay the decree.
Why make a fuss, Gus?
It's about to combust much.
It's not liberty, gee.
Why can't we agree?

They must aggrieve; religious freedom's put in chains.
Punish prayer and anything that you taboo we must abstain.
We cannot consecrate what is just God it's not arcane.
No doubt, it's shifty ways.

Father, Son, Holy Ghost they weep for this tonight.
So now please perceive the warning if you fail to see the light.
Because you diss what you don't idealize, your parable will write,
About your shifty ways to lose the culture.
Shifty ways to lose the culture.

Just move the knick-knack, Jack.
Use my step van, man.
Now just go redeploy, Roy.
Don't stay the decree.
Why make a fuss, Gus?
It's about to combust much.
It's not liberty, gee.
Why can't we agree?

Just move the knick-knack, Jack.
Use my step van, man.
Now just go redeploy, Roy.
Don't stay the decree.
Why make a fuss, Gus?
It's about to combust much.
It's not liberty, gee.
Why can't we agree?

A good parody, but that monument has got to go. It belongs in the Museum of the State of Alabama, assuming that backward State even has one. It does not belong on courthouse property. As a museum exhibit, it would be art or history. On courthouse property, it is an endorsement of a specific religion, and that is unconstitutional and un-American.

Passionate, wrong, but well communicated message. Guy you commented once that freedom of speech has no place in the military - well, the framers of the Constitution were very skeptical about any alliance between church and state in the national government; they saw it as dangerous. Afterall, they were suffering from religious persecution, weren't they. So, religion has no place in our government. Deal?

A very good job, Guy! Clever piece of footwork, Robert, but you miss the whole point of freedom of speech in the military. They have one job...protect us. They can't be doing that if they are arguing amongst themselves. Again, nice work on the weaving of words, Guy. 5's

I said all I'm going to say on this in my song. It's is called as it is seen.

IT'S NOT LIKE THAT STONE CARVING WAS A BELOVED ANTIQUE--MOORE HAD IT BUILT AND INSTALLED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO FOR THE EXPRESS PURPOSE OF GENERATING CONTROVERSY AND PUBLICITY FOR HIMSELF. TRUST ME ON THIS. ALSO, OF ALL OF THE MILLIONS OF WORDS ATTRIBUTED TO ME OVER THE CENTURIES, WHY THE OBSESSION WITH SOME OLD RULES MOSES GAVE TO THE ISRAELITES? MUST BE BECAUSE OF THE HANDY "TOP TEN LIST" FORMAT. DAMN THAT LETTERMAN. (SO TO SPEAK.)
