The Lyrics

Conservatives just won't back down on this whole gay marriage/gay rights issue. Sheesh. Let it go, you lost, they won. Let love be love. The views and opinions expressed in this parody certainly don't reflect my own.
*Sung by a politician, a Mormon, a Trump-like rich WASP, a Second Amendment-supporting redneck with a mullet and Skynyrd T-shirt, a Texas sheriff, and a country singer.*

Straight man, we’re not gonna back down
I said, straight man, gonna show all them clowns
I said, straight man, SCOTUS we will strike down
They’re the gay that don’t mean “happy”

Straight man, there's a place you can go
Indiana, not too far off the road
When you get there, well I'm sure you will find
Many ways to trump their good times

We’re gonna stand by the…
RFRA
We’re gonna stick by the…
RFRA-ay

It has everything to strike back at their ploy
No more ladies thinking they’re boys

We’re gonna stick up for…
RFRA
We’re gonna stick up for…
RFRA-ay

You can cut all your hair, you can read the Good Book
We will judge you based on your looooks

Straight man, are you listening to me?
I said, save us, from the LGBT
Look at Jenner, he’s a chick in his dreams
Vote for Don-ald Trump in six-teen!

Yo, man! We need all of your help
I said, straight man, show your pride, go to Hell
Just don’t go there! Viva RFRA!
Supreme Court will lose big some day

We’re gonna stand by the…
RFRA
We’re gonna stick by the…
RFRA-ay

It bans everything
You will be unemployed
If you “hang out” with all the boys

It's constitutional
RFRA
There‘s nothing you can do
RFRA-ay

You can’t marry unclean, but we can have two wives
Keeping secrets from public liiiife

Gay man, I was once in your shoes
I admit it, listened to rock and blues
I found one man, and my dad beat my ass
Threatened me with Sun-day School class

That's when someone came up to me
And said, “Young man, why you dressed up in pink?
You have long hair! There’s a barber that way
He can make your hair look less gay”

We won’t retire the…
RFRA
It's fun to stick with the…
RFRA-ay

So our moral crusade isn’t one day destroyed
By some mascara-wearing booooys

RFRA....you'll find it all in the RFRA

Straight man, straight man, we’re not gonna back down
Straight man, straight man, gonna show all them cloooowns

(Interlude)

RFRA....you'll find it all in the RFRA

Straight man, straight man, are you listening to me?
Save us, young man, from the LGBT-eeee

RFRA....you'll find it all in the RFRA-ay

Straight man, yo man, we need all of your help
Gay man, gay man, show your pride, go to Heeeell

(Repeat/fade)

I'm surprised there are so many conservatives on Amiright, judging from the votes. Either that, or they didn't get my approach. It's meant to attack conservatives in an ironic fashion. It's not a sincere attack on the LGBT community. I'm straight and I totally support the cause. I hope this clears things up, if you're confused by my approach.

Matching RFRA with YMCA was damned clever, I'll give you that. I'm conservative, but that was a good burn

Chris, conservatives can't do irony. Many here are to the right of Attila the Hun and are summer soldiers and sunshine patriots.

CS is a gay-pleasin' down on his knees not in prayer ultraliberal looney. Btw, sane today in the Obama administration is actually leftist retarded! Put that in your pipe and smoke it, SSI couch potato.

Hey, Conservative, stifle yourself! You spit tobacco juice, moonshine, and partly digested raccoon all over my keyboard. Your white robe got stained, too. Write again when you get your I.Q. into the double figures.

What do you get when you offer a liberal a penny for his thoughts? Change!!!

Politics is like driving. It's R to go backwards and D to go forward.

Btw, it's obvious who Conservative/GOP is!!!

Excellent choice of OS, nicely-written. Without the intro, I'll bet there are some people who might've thought you were being serious (Poe's law & all that) :-) But take pride in all those 1s: it means you've struck a nerve with just the sort of person you were aiming at.

Excellent satire, Chris! Not only was it funny, it directly hit the target at hand without sweeping generalization.

There are times when you might need to put it in reverse, Dem -- like when you're about to drive over a cliff
Dem - July 05, 2015 - Report this comment
Q. What did the Republican say when he sat on a tack?
A. "Ouch, my face!"
Patrick - July 07, 2015 - Report this comment
A very funny parody. Matches the tone and spirit of the original. That's what this site is truly all about. Gay marriage is a hot topic, and well deserving of all our best efforts at lampooning, from all sides and opinions.

What better way to say I love you than with sodomy! New commercial for Jared: My God, he REALLY went to Jared!!!
