The Day Our Freedom Died

Last September I was inspired to rework the lyric to Don McLean's American Pie.

The Day our Freedom Died

A long long time ago, I can still remember
What a shot rang 'round the world was worth
To secure the Blessings of Liberty
To ourselves and our Posterity
Our freedom shall not perish from the earth †

August sweltered but I still shivered
With every senate speech delivered
The urgence of a bidder,
Not a moment to consider
Can't remember when I complied
Can't keep up with all of those who lied
We were rolled over by the Tides
The day our freedom died

The kids were singing...
Mm mm mmm Barack Hussein Obama
Now my Chevy is a clunker as I hunker in pajamas
Them good ol' boys †Hugo, Jimmy, and Osama
Condemn all this water board drama,
And they're all just surfing the Bahamas

Now four score or more the progressive
Are getting ever more possessive
But that's not how it's meant to be
Our checks and limits should guaranty
No tyranny of the majority
And a voice that comes from you and me

"It's our land", useful idiots proclaim
Your land's not yours by eminent domain
The city council hyenas
Build corporate arenas
The President sips his champagne
Raising more funds for his campaign
It must be time for tea again
The day our freedom died

But kids were singing...
Mm mm mmm Barack Hussein Obama
Now my Chevy is a clunker as I hunker in pajamas
Them good ol' boys †Hugo, Jimmy, and Osama
Condemn all this water board drama,
And they're all just surfing the Bahamas

And both sides now ferment division
With racist unpatriotic derision
We can not walk alone
And the Reverend had a dream on TV
Not "Free at last", but chained equally
And under the bus we'll all be thrown

And in the schools children of Pride
The NEA's big brothers guide
But Jesus can't be spoken
The freedom bells are broken
And the three Men I admire most
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Find truth held hostage in the Post

The day our freedom died.
  

I know exactly why I don't have success. I am prideful. I have been known to be lazy. My compass keeps changing.&&&&You canít just wish you were King you know.

Thank you very much. I thought about recording it, but the rights to the music are ridiculously expensive.
