-> "The Far-Sighted Fighters"
Original Song Title:
"The Star Spangled Banner"
Parody Song Title:
"The Far-Sighted Fighters"
For free speech, for free press, and free prayer: 'twas a fight!
In a world of despots: Visions undreamt of by man
And for peaceful protest: What a "radical right"!
But by bravery bold, said America, "I can"
Some day, may all be free; know joy of lib-er-ty
May struggle not be vain; vision: Frances Scott Key
O say, will freedom's glorious banner ever wave
O'er world, where all are free, fruits of fighters so brave?
Two mistakes still remained; consequences, quite grave;
Civil War, bloody red, with Abe Lincoln presiding;
Women: chattels of men, and the Blacks did still slave
As the North and South were split, brother with brother fighting
Toll at Gettysburg: great, but slaves, emancipate;
Son of immigrants, Black: Secretary of State*
Nineteen-twenty, vote to women our country -- gave ---
Land had ended servitude; salute suffragettes brave
On a shore, far away, demagoguery, incite;
Rose a Führer, insane; vision: whole world beneath him
But, united, free men from all continents, fight
The result of their pain: death in bunker, bequeath him
Christian, Muslim, or Jew, Buddhist, Shinto, Hindu
All faiths, freedom protect; yes, for atheists, too!
Let no man tell another what must think or say
May the Planet, pole to pole, live in peace, some bless'd day.
In another land, rich with tradition and pride
Did the Communists rise, rule and seek domination
Revolution, then switch: how Vlad'mir Lenin lied:
'Stead of "worker's paradise": Stalin's exterminations
Promised "progress for all"; chopped Berlin with a wall
'Til ex-actor with guts** forced divider to fall
And fast as magic trick, pick axes waving wide
Glad Germans, brick by brick, quickly reunified!
Over two thousand years poor Europe has been torn
By feudal monarchies: permanent confrontations
Thanks to far-sighted seers, Common Market is born
"Global Village": 'conomies with free trade among nations
Let all prosper and thrive; no more, merely survive
With blair of trumpets bold, freedoms finally arrive!
And long may freedom's glorious banner ever wave
O'er world, where all are free, fruits of fighters so brave!
