"You Give Americans A Bad Name"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

I don't want to cause alot of contraversy but it's not right what those
troops did to the Iraqis i am american and i wish to state my
embarrassment and shame for their actions
A troops uniform is what you wear
but a vengful heart and hateful actions
distort your care
Chains of pain held them
when an iraqi in prison,
we'll see how mistreated you will be

you're an A **hole son
there was nowhere they could run
no one could save them
the damage can't be undone

shot with a camera
the troops who abuse and bait
you give americans a bad name
you tore them apart with your stupid game
you give us a bad name
you give americans a bad name

with a smile on your face
you beat them
til blood runs from their heads
a little boy's dream shattered by the obscene
your very first fight was treason on high

you're an A**hole sone
there was nowhere they could run

Pacing's off. You can't replace the word "love" with "Americans"; the number of syllables is different.

I know what you mean, Kat - there are times when you feel you really have to write something to get it out of your system.
