This is a Parody of Don Mclean’s Classic American Pie. I wrote this during the financial crisis at the beginning of the Obama Administration. It’s interesting to look back at how much has changed, and yet, how little has changed. Same old divisive America. I will soon follow up with an updated version of this parody if you’d like. Let me know in the coments below.
Note from Wallace (editor):
I couldn’t find a non-pirated version of the original, so here is the best I could get. Hope some of you will still enjoy it!
Long, long time ago. I can still remember
The Revolution used to make me smile.
I knew that if we had our chance
That we could take this nation back
And maybe we could limp on for a while.
The PATRIOT act made me shiver
Our nation’s fate signed sealed delivered
Bad news on the doorstep
I wouldn’t take one more step.
I had the urge to run and hide
When they crumbled up our bill of rights
They’ll come and take you in the night
You’re jailed without a trial
