"Freedom of Speech"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This song is about Don Imus and how he got in trouble for saying what rappers say all the time. PC = politically correct
People... will confound
With all the things they do
Speaking... has become
A one-sided taboo

[chorus]
If you can't say ho, just think of how
How the rappers will still scream and shout
And I can't say ho because we're PC
If you can't say ho, just think of how
Double standards we could do without
And I can't say ho because we're PC

I know that I'm broadcast on TV
But I also know... I'm white
Well... maybe, I got what I deserved
But it's not Jay-Z getting fined

Ohh... hoo... [oops]

[chorus]

[2x]
Diff'rent, if I had a tan
And they might
Let me say, "my ni**er"
But I don't even really know
If it's wrong, or if it is better
No no...

[chorus 4x until fade]

I recommend "The Politically Correct Dictionary" by Christopher Cerf and Henry Beard. Brilliantly skewers the plague of PCness.

You know how I feel about today's song lyrics. Good job of commenting on the hypocrisy.
