The Lyrics

When tomorrow I prepare to fly
To see my mom and dad
Knowing what I'll face to get there
Makes me think I'm going mad

'Cause I know blue-shirted thugs
Will be standin' in my way
To scan away my pride and freedom
And to take my drinks awaa-aay

I was proud to be an American
Where I know we once were free
But we forgot the ones who died
Who gave that right to me

Now we have to stand up
Spread our arms, and do just as they say
Though there ain't no doubt I love this land,
I hate the TSA!

From Duluth in Minnesota
to Nashville Tennessee
DFW out in Texas
Lines as far as you can see

From Detroit down to Houston
And New York to L.A.
There's disgust in every American heart
And it's time we stand and say

We were proud to be in America
And we all thought we were free
But now we've got full body scans
And not our liberty

Now it's time to stand up
Grab our shoes and have the guts to say
You touch my junk, I'll break your hand
We hate the TSA

Let's be proud to be true Americans
And again we will be free
Hey TSA go wand yourself
And leave my grandma be

And we'll gladly stand up
To Janet, too, and make her grope her way
Cause there ain't no doubt we love this land
But hate the TSA!

No there ain't no doubt we love this land!
Shut down the TSA!

Outstanding! Your lyrics fit our times better than Lee Greenwood's. What if the Jihadis were to change their plans of destroying planes in flight and start attacking the security apparatus instead? What if the economy picked up and fewer people felt the need to take such a degrading job? The feds don't grope people to provide safety, they use safety as the excuse to grope people. I like your song a lot. It should be our new national anthem to replace the old one: "God Bless the USA".

Nicely done and I wholeheartedly agree!

Next will be manditory "waterboarding". Thorough groping has turned up fives for you...

This goes to show that America isn't such a free country after all. Do blacks still get arrested just for driving through an all white neighborhood?

How true this song is. Sad.

Thanks so much for wittily protesting this anti-American, anti-decency, anti-freedom, anti-humanity bureaucracy. May the TSA burn in hell forever, and may patriots like the author of these lyrics and those posting comments here live to see that glorious day.
