The Lyrics

My beloved state has gone topsy turvy with a weasel governor and right wing zealots. Normally I refrain from political posts, but North Carolina is in the process of heading backwards at full speed ahead. For example. there was a bill introduced a few months ago that proposed the state ignore the US Constitution's First Amendment so they could ignore the faith of other people in council meetings (regardless on whether you agree or not, the thought that anyone would propose a bill like this is just...well...insane). Examples of our lovely general assembly can be done with a simple web search. Knock yourself out. For some national views on what's going on here, The Daily Show provides some great examples of our GA's idiocy.
I'm using the pronunciation of 'goin' that James Taylor uses in the original. He pronounces it more like gone- one syllable- than goin'- which is two syllables.
Lost their minds, those guys in Carolina
Sad to see the right side
Has to go show their be-hinds
Guess you just need your moon to shine
To shine on state’s decline
Yes, those guys in Carolina lost their minds

Women, they’re the lovely ones
They’re best locked away, with rights declinin’
Keep them down with manly thumb
Those righteous tears you're formin', they're just phony
Know why?
Guys in Carolina lost their minds

I’d say there’s doubt in most folk’s minds
That voter fraud’s a frequent foul
Myth was made to make you cry
But hey guys with pants on fire, you’re lyin’
Said I
Guys in Carolina lost their minds

Lost their minds, those guys in Carolina
Seems to me the new crime
Set the clock back to old times
When wages were kind to rich old guys
No living wage supplied
Yes, those guys in Carolina lost their minds.

First amendment ain’t quite right
You think the law is wrong for faith you’re haulin’
You felt fright for law that bites
Rights are good for no man, ‘cept for your Man,
Your Man
Those guys in Carolina lost their minds

All the teaching folks you smother,
Payin’ paltry
Still you want the best ones in the schools
But you want those folks to work for free forever
Who needs to think, read?
No one does when guys in Carolina lost their minds

Lost their minds, those guys in Carolina
Guess you just drank your own whine
Stuntin' that growth to your spine
Raleigh has gone to Austin time
Dementia you've enshrined
Yes those guys in Carolina lost their minds

Guys in Carolina lost their minds
And we’ll vote for Carolina ‘lection time
Vote for Carolina ‘lection time

Flown
They’ve flown
Filled their brains with empty
Yes they’re gone
Out there
Someone spiked their ice tea
Cos’ they’re gone

I would say you goose-stepping leftard cultists are the ones who've lost your minds, except that you've never had any minds in the first place. Good riddance to that slut Beverly Perdue and the rest of her political brothel. Next thing we need to do is tar and feather the Anti-Christian Litigation Union, Nazi-P, Satanic Parasitic Lefard C*nts and other hate groups and run their commie fascist racist rumps out of town on a rail.

I'm humbled by words you have writ
Such wisdom ordained by such wit
It seems clear to me
You're not from NC
And clear that you just don't know...a lot

I think "adorned" makes more sense than "ordained." Otherwise, you nailed the moron.
