Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Based on some things that were drilled into my head when I was young.
Rights come with re-
Sponsibilities
And your privileges come
With your duties
If you want the bennies,
Then follow rules, there are so many

Rights come with re-
Sponsibilities
You need both if you're to
Have equality
Not just for the gentry,
For citizens, it's element'ry

Try try try to separate them
Selfish illusion
Left and right can argue but they can't
Dodge this conclusion

Rights come with re-
Sponsibilities
Exercise them and you'll
Gain prosperity
Learned from Dad and Mother
You can't have one without the other

Try try try to separate them
Selfish illusion
Left and right can argue but they can't
Dodge this conclusion

Rights come with re-
Sponsibilities
Exercise them and you'll
Gain prosperity
Learned from Dad and Mother
You can't have one
(You can't have none)
You can't have one without the other.

Well done Steve.

Steve, your message should go without saying - but it doesn't - so I commend you for conveying the message in a creative way.
Claude Prez - January 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah, what John said. I'm down with anything that recognizes both left and right have this problem. Well done and also thank you for not trying to cram both words into the first line.

Claude: I was tempted to do just what you said, cram both words into one line. Fortunately, I found a different arrangement. John: You're so right (as in correct). Guy and Adagio: Thanks. Al: I hope that your show is revived, with this version of the theme song, sung by Dr. Laura.
