Song Parodies -> "The Scar Mangled Battlers"

"The Star Spangled Banner"

Original Performer:

Francis Scott Key

Parody Song Title:

"The Scar Mangled Battlers"

Parody Written by:

Royce Miller

The Lyrics

As most of you know, the original song has four verses, all of them wonderful. But most parodies of this song on this site have only the one verse that we hear all the time, and so does mine. I saw a bumper sticker the other day that said "Land of the free because of the brave".....
O say can't you see past the pawns and the blight
Who so loudly assail every effort to free men?
Yellow stripes bear no scars
They have not known a fight
For their hands they have washed
"Let's retreat", they are screaming
But the rocket's red glare is the way we got here
And brave ones still fight to keep our flag flown here
Oh see what our scar-mangled battlers have saved?
It's the land of the free, all because of the brave

I'm not patriotic, but 555 anyway.

Nicely done. I appreciate the fact you didn't turn this into a Conservative-baiting wartime song. Too bad most Americans can't even sing the melody, let alone remember the OS lyrics. 555

We owe our freedom to them. 5s for 'meaningful'

Stirring. The policies of the politicos are debate-worthy, but not the quality of those who serve them and us. We owe this free-speech Website to them as well. General-ly, Five-stars.
