The Lyrics

Republicans are great pretenders
Pretenders who are doing well
Their need is such
They pretend too much
They only like whites
They won't tell

Oh, yes, they're the great pretenders
Short shrift to the world they don't own
They've played their game,
But without real shame
They play make-believe all the time

Unreal is this stealing of fake belief
Until we reveal what their hearts can't conceal

Yes, they're the great pretenders
Still bashing the gays 'til they're down
They dream to be what they're not, you see
They're falling apart, with no crown
Pretending, when they're losing ground

(instrumental break)

Unreal is this stealing of fake belief
Until we reveal what their hearts can't conceal

Yes, they're the great pretenders
Still bashing the gays 'til they're down
They dream to be what they're not, you see
They're falling apart, with no crown
Pretending, when they're losing ground
