The Lyrics

Another dark and disturbing parody about the enemy not only of Black folks, but Republicans (immediate post-Civil War), Jews, Catholics, socialists, communists, and immigrants. There is no glorification in this parody- it ends with standing up to them as was the case in a series of historical legal actions, the foundation of the NAACP, and various Presidential actions in the US. The KKK isn't about "White Power" at all- the "Invisible Empire" are a bunch of ignorant, domestic terrorists that have to hide in bedsheets and play dirty at night...
Get me down my scatter gun
Get me down my bat
Hurry now folks and don’t be late
'Cuz the white man’s attackin’ Black

You and me we’re hidin’ out
To avoid those sniffin’ hounds
Black folks gonna lose their mind
When the Klan rides into town

Hey, y’all prepare yourself
For the Ku Klux Klan- Gang
You’ve never seen such a sight
Like the Ku Klux Klan- Gang
You’re bound to lose control
When the Ku Klux Klan is raidin’ the land

Oh, Lord, these dudes are causin’ fright
They are out for me and you
And they come out so late at night
There’s not much that we can do

Once I saw them stalk their prey
In the woods outside of town
I was so surprised, I was terrified
When a brother was hung, and not cut down
(I didn’t make a sound)

When I saw this pointy head guy
Dressed in white from head to toe
Hell, I was scared to death when he lit that torch
And a flamin’ Cross did I behold

Hey, y’all prepare yourself
For the Ku Klux Klan- Gang
You’ve never seen such a sight
Like the Ku Klux Klan- Gang
You’re bound to lose control
When the Ku Klux Klan is raidin’ the land

Got a Black man
Way up on his toes
And then they pulled the rope up
Stuck, noose got him in a choke hold
(still hangin’ there, body’s cold)

(Comin’ for you, Comin‘ for you, Comin‘ for you)
Got Black folks terrified
(Comin’ for you, Comin‘ for you, Comin‘ for you)
Burnin‘ down churches and homes, all the time
(Comin’ for you, Comin‘ for you, Comin‘ for you)
All started by a group of Confederates, Oh, Lord
(Comin’ for you, Comin‘ for you)
Lord, help us get away

Hey, y’all prepare yourself
For the Ku Klux Klan- Gang
You’ve never seen such a sight
Like the Ku Klux Klan- Gang
You’re bound to lose control
When the Ku Klux Klan is raidin’ the land

(Comin’ for you, Comin‘ for you)
(Comin’ for you, Comin‘ for you, Comin‘ for you)
(Comin’ for you, Comin‘ for you)
Ku Klux Klan- Gang, Ku Klux Klan- Gang
How much more of this sh-t do they think we can stand?
So much racism, hate and murder from the Man, Lord
And then they have nerve to prevent us from the vote
Can‘t let this be, got to kill ‘em all dead, y’all
Y‘all, come on, no mercy

Hey, y’all prepare yourself
For the Ku Klux Klan- gang
You’ve never seen such a sight
Like the Ku Klux Klan- gang
You’re bound to lose control
When the Ku Klux Klan is raidin’ the land

Ku Klux Klan-Gang raidin’ the land
Get up folks and take a stand
Gotta defeat them and their evil ways
Turnin’ the South into a damn disgrace

Start a movement, just a movement, just a move-move-movement
F--k the Ku Klux Klan, Ku Klux Klan-Gang
Start a movement, just a movement, just a move-move-movement
F--k the Ku Klux Klan, Ku Klux Klan-Gang

Get up, not down
Oh, kill those Muthaf--kers
Uh-huh

These are the only spooks in sheets that need to disappear, Great Job! 555! :-)

On V4L1 I deliberately left in "dudes" vs "spooks" due to the nature of the parody. I tried to do this responsibly with a decent ending.

An accurate summation of the activities of the sheetheads. I've seen a lot of their 1920's literature. At that time the main focus was on the Catholic Church and its alleged undue influence.

The 1920s were scary b/c the KKK had millions of followers then and marched in D.C. They were heavily involved in politics too.

When I used the word "spooks" I was referring to ghosts. ;-)

Rob, how do you come up with this stuff??? It's mind-blowing!!! 555!!! Sign me up for class ;-)
Rob Arndt - July 12, 2011 - Report this comment
Well, for this one I tried to think of what rhymes with Rubberband!!! True!!! And despite any criticism of being dark and negative, I like the weird stuff better than potty or sexual humor stuff here- I'll leave that to others. I believe we all have a niche to fill :-D

Rhyming with rubberband, there is a pitcher named John Cumberland but that's a bit irrelevant :D
KKK are Klutzy Kowards - July 12, 2011 - Report this comment
If the Dept. of Home Security was really serious about fighting terrorism they would've cracked down on these KKKoneheads a long time ago. Domestic scumbags are the greater threat to the U.S.A.

thank God the republicans freed the slaves. the demoncrats had a KKK member, robert "sheets" byrd on their team. how's getting those troops home by aug 2010 going? how's that 8% or less unemployment the slush fund bail out stimulous was suppost fix? any complaints about odumba from the odumbites? didnt think so. no integrity still. but you may as well act like you car about human rights while you fund abortions for 15 year olds with tax dollars.
