The Lyrics

Our plan, there's not a law so profound.
I said, our clan, knows just how to confound.
I said, know, man. cause we're well reknown,
It's our greed that makes us scrappy.

(sound of gavel)

Bomp-bomp-bomp bomp-bomp

Take stand, death penalty, No!
I said, demand, abortion's a go.
Force a stay there, because justice is blind,
Find more ways to serve less time.

(sound of gavel)

Bomp-bomp-bomp bomp-bomp

Get rights for gay with the A-C-L-U.
You must not pray says the A-C-L-U.

If a boy's a plaything for a man to enjoy,
We'll harangue out with lots of noise ...

When they say it's obscene,
We just file appeal,
We're so clever and so surreal ...

We scam, much by twisting decree.
I said, be damned, turn the law to debris.
I said, Our shams, we can conceal through schemes.
We always go for the brass ring.

(sound of gavel)

Bomp-bomp-bomp bomp-bomp

Our plan turns the law on itself.
We can do this with a jury of twelve,
So now beware of the A-C-L-U.
Nothing that we cannot construe.

(sound of gavel)

Bomp-bomp-bomp bomp-bomp

So run today to the A-C-L-U
No guns we play with the A-C-L-U

It's that gay thing with those milit-ree boys,
We can gang up unbalance their poise ...

So run today to the A-C-L-U
No guns we play with the A-C-L-U

If you pay us real green,
You won't need an appeal.
The more you pay the more we steal ...

Demand, your rights they don't abuse.
Mislead, it's the constitution they bruise.
It just so grand as they snare and contrive.
And they never feel contrite ...

(sound of gavel)

Bomp-bomp-bomp bomp-bomp

Won't be outdone, Montgomery,
We say, remand, move that block of concrete.
Way out back there says the ACLU,
Write the constitution brand new.

We won your stay, we're the A-C-L-U
No one can pray, says the A-C-L-U

They use every means,
To tear down and destroy.
Shield dirty men messin' with boys ...

A-C-L-U ... they'll blind the facts the A-C-L-U

Disband, disband, take the government down.
Expand, expand, make what's simple compound.

A-C-L-U ... they'll blind the facts the A-C-L-U

Disband, disband, take the government down.
Expand, expand, make what's simple compound.

A-C-L-U ... you're subject to A-C-L-U

We scam, we scam, much by twisting decree.
Be damned, be damned, turn the law to debris.

Huh? The ACLU, as in the American Civil Liberties Union? I really don't think this parody is about the ACLU I know. Telling people they can't pray, helping sex offenders, taking down the government?

You wanna sing about an organization taking away our rights, do it about the Bush/Cheney regime...whiney, right-wing loser.
Rice Cube - August 26, 2003 - Report this comment
Ah, Bill...what rights have you lost lately?
Guy DiRito - August 26, 2003 - Report this comment
Which 'Bill' are you? Are you Mr. Tong or another 'Bill'? And remember we should not get personal out here. So I will overlook the name calling this time.

Now here is where I get my facts:

While there's nothing wrong with being gay, I think there's something very disturbing about grown men who like to have sex with underaged boys.
Guy DiRito - August 26, 2003 - Report this comment
The parody is not all negative, but it's all true. Sometimes these guys use their sway for proper causes, but when they support groups like NAMBLA, well it just makes me write about them. Too far left is just as bad as being too far right. .

I was quit saddened when I read this parody, I heard such great things about you but taking a stab at gay rights. . .that's VERY negative. As for supporting NAMBLA, that is not true. They have never said they support a person's ill-conceived right to have sex with children, that's not true at all-they do not believe that, what they did was stand up for their right to say that they believe this, as they have stood up and said it is a Christian's right to say they won't let gays in their church. . .they have stood up for EVERY group's rights. . .maybe I just picked the wrong first song to read by you, because this one was very upsetting and mis-informed in my opinion.
