The Lyrics

I'm actually quite surprised no one else had come up with this idea already.
These guys, they like
Discrimination
And their goal is to spread
Fear and intimidation
They marinate
In their own hate
There is so much at stake
Seems equality's against the ropes
Does the world understand?
Is it North versus South
Or man against man
Can all the races stand alone

It's the burning cross
Symbol of their hate
Spreading terror east and west through twenty-one states
It's a violent night
When they come to town
It's the burning cross
And it will burn to the ground

In the Klansmen's code
We are not brothers
If your skin color's dark
They will see you as "other"
Deep in your soul
They'll never look
They see only skin deep
And they'll try their best to hold you down
Yeah, they act like they're ill
If your skin color's black
You might even get killed
There's nothing bad that they won't do

In the burning cross
Symbol of their hate
Spreading terror east and west through twenty-one states
It's a violent night
When they come to town
It's the burning cross
And it will burn to the ground

In the burning cross
Symbol of their hate
Spreading terror east and west through twenty-one states
It's a violent night
When they come to town
It's the burning cross
And it will burn to the ground

In the burning cross
Symbol of their hate
Spreading terror east and west through twenty-one states
It's a evil night
When they come to town
It's the burning cross
And it will burn to the ground

In the burning cross
Symbol of their hate
Spreading terror east and west through twenty-one states
It's a evil night
When they come to town
It's the burning cross
And it will burn to the ground

Hu - In the 1920's, the Klan was so powerful that they paraded down Pennsylvania Avenue in full regalia! As for this parody, I'd say you knocked the "sheet" out of them! ;D
