The Lyrics

Moving or removing all Confederate statues and memorials will not satisfy the Far Left. Streets, buildings, libraries, museums, etc. named for any historical figure who owned slaves must be scrubbed. Eventually even cities and towns will have to be renamed for native tribes here before Columbus. Here are three examples that are geographically accurate. In the not-too-distant future, we may be singing ...
Serrano was San Bernardino
Now it's Serrano not San Bernardino
Been a long time gone
Old San Bernardino still gives migrants green light
Gov'nor Moon's white flight

Ev'ryone in San Bernardino
Is a Serranon, not San Bernardinan
So if you've a date in San Bernardino
You'll be feting in Serrano

Even Wampanoag was former Charlestown
Why'd they change names? I can't say
(Warren just liked it better that way)

Take me back to San Bernardino
No, you can't go back to San Bernardino
Now it's Serrano, not San Bernardino
Why did San Bernardino get renamed?
Old Spanish-run missions must be shamed

Where'd San go?
Ser-ran-o!

E'en Dakota Sioux was Minneapolis
Why'd they change names? I can't say
(Franken just liked it better that way)

Take me back to San Bernardino
No, you can't go back to San Bernardino
Now it's Serrano, not San Bernardino
Why did San Bernardino get renamed?
Old Catholic Fathers must be blamed

Reclaimed!

Some cities already are named for indigenous tribes, e.g. Ventura CA for the Venturano tribe.

The footnoted tribe was Venturono, with a tilde over the second n. Blamed and shamed should swap places.
