The Lyrics

Not really in the mood to write a funny parody today. Based on its actions, I've got a new acronym for FEMA: YOYO ("You're On Your Own"). Anyway, I'm not expecting 5's on humor here. Amazing how changing just a few words is all this OS needed. And please follow the link in the comments at the bottom.
A girl was on TV, with sadness in her eyes
She cried out that she needed help
Before her city dies

Although I couldn't feel the pain, I knew I had to try
Now I'm asking all of you
To help us save some lives

New Orleans, New Orleans
Where so many people are dying fast
And it sure looks like a mess
I've never seen such distress
Now won't you lend your hand and understand
Relieve the people of New Orleans

New Orleans, New Orleans
Such a great disaster - I don't understand
And it sure looks like a mess
I've never known such distress
Now please don't turn away, Where are the troops today?
Relieve the people of New Orleans
Relieve New Orleans

New Orleans, New Orleans
Now the same thing could happen where we all are
It's something we can't neglect
Why won't our soldiers protect?
Now won't you give some bread to get the starving fed
Let's get 'em out of New Orleans
Relieve the people of New Orleans
Let's get 'em out of New Orleans
Pray for the people of New Orleans
Song parody by Mason "contribute now" Resnick.

It's OK to post un-funny parodies --- especially when they remind us of what's important. Well done.
