The Lyrics

This was inspired by the recent confiscation of a Mars Hill student's computer over a harmless parody of the president. See the news archive about this....
Well, it's never a crime to say
With a parody
You won't obey.
With this carrion hawkish load,
They may waste our lives,
Tell us lies,
But the things we say and do
Are protected:
The Constitution's true

Well, we live in a time that's strange
Congress takes a stance
To rearrange
All the rights that we thought won't go.
Just to find out something
We all know

Can't you see what's goin' on?
It's so sad, when our liberty is wronged.

Now we know they're watching you
Rights are cast... far from view
So just look around and see

They rule our lives with this regime
Some enemies kill
While others will scheme
We can't go on another day
With leaders like Tom Delay

'Cause there's a long, long way to fall
When we all thought we'd seen it all
While we're stuck in this Muslim fray
It will soon play out
We've lost our way

All I hope that you will see
Is to understand that
Stability
Is over....

So sad (so sad)
Oooohh so sad (so sad)
That's the way that it goes
although...
We've gotta stop it right now....

Well, the bad news is I gave you a 545 (still loved it, but not lol funny), but the good news is Tom DeLay resigned. Great jump on this news story.

Thanks, Red. :) Yeah, a few hours after I had written this parody, DeLay announced his resignation. I was happy to hear that, but it appears that my parody has instantly become dated because of it.... lol
