The Lyrics

Well I crawled out of bed yawned and stretched
Turned on that darned TV
Wishing I didn't have to hear
what Katie was saying to me
"New Orlean's has drowned
FEMA's playing around"
And that flag don't stand for freedom
they sure took that away today

And I'm sad to be and Amerikan
In the land of the crave and spree
Where King George signed the Patriot Act
to enslave both you and me
And I'll gladly stand up
with my gun
To defend myself today
'Cause cops are extensions of the FBI
Gonzales and the NSA

Now their talking 'bout airport searches
Random searches on trains as well
Pass hate crimes bill
to stifle all dissent
This country is going to hell
There's shame in many Amerikan hearts
It's time for us to stand and tell

I'm sad to be an Amerikan
in the land of the crave and spree
Where King George signed the Patriot Act
to enslave both you and me
And I'll gladly stand up
with my gun
To defend myself today
'Cause cops are extensions of the FBI
Gonzales and the NSA

I liked the song, but what's the "k" for? I know Germans spell it that way, but still...

Better hide your gun, Carol! Pacholek wants people like you prosecuted. He thinks you should trust in the police and FEMA to protect you against muggers and looters.

Its pace is off in a few places, the gun thing, so not democrat, who's hinnie are you buttering up with that anti-left thought? And as for the rest, you must have some extreme libs voting and would vote anything that bashed bush well.. but hun - it made no friggin sense, it honestly was a bunch of non-sense strug together with no form at all. Furthermore, the "K" in America was not funny in the other song, people had to ask both times and since neither parody gave a friggin clue as to what that was, they both were really stupid! So right or left, I am not a lying hypocrite of the year winner... your song did suck & you have NOOOOOO room to talk to anyone with any credibility hun! Best keep you day job, well, welfare what ever.

I thought this was dead on the money. Right on, Carol, I'll have your back in this matter. If the right doesn't like what you wrote, then that's just tough! This is one of the best country music parodies I've ever read!
