The Lyrics

Sometimes it’s hard to be the ropeman,
Giving your all to the Wizard’s plan.
You’ll have hood times;
You’ll have hang times,
Noosing rings in hemp, that wonder strand.
Cuz you don’t love blacks, and you’ll string [wet]backs—
It’s what you’ve been taught to understand.
Because you love it
And you’re proud of it,
You will do all for the wonder Grand.

Stand by your Klan—
The Stars and Bars you cling to,
Ultimate harm you’ll bring to
Those for whom knights have loathing.
Stand by your Klan
And tell the world you’re Kluxing,
Giving rope all the tugs you can—
Stand by your Klan.

Stand by your Klan
And show the world you’re cruxing—
God’s cross and knots held in your hand.
Hang high your man.

There were quite a few, back in sixty-two, today, what? Three or four? Without them how could libs slander the tea parties? Without them Morris Dees would be unemployed. They're the Universal Sheetheads. And conservatives take the blame, for racist views abandoned long ago. A marvelously well-written satire.

I've heard that, to update their image, the klan is changing their name to Da Boys In Da "Hood". 555 federal investigations...and convictions! ;D

Johnny? Are you being coy? If I ask what's this alluding to will you respond "if the hood fits"
Patrick - March 24, 2010 - Report this comment

Great take - I'm laughing so hard i'm crying. It's even funnier to hear Tammy singing this one.

The irony of John Barry doing this song is, clearly, the Klan can't... SPELL! Great job, John, you kicked the sheet out of them!
