The Lyrics

Oh say can you see where our freedoms have gone?
What was easily lost by our apathy and greed.
Banksters put us in debt, obscene profits bad bets.
In the still of the night,There was no o-ver-sight!

While we cheered our HOME TEAMS, Lawyers stole all OUR DREAMS
Outsourcing our jobs, closing factories down!

Oh Say can you tell me who our leaders represe-ent?
Corporations run the show, and along we must go!

On the shore, dimly lit, politicians were split
by lobbyists galore - making deals on the floor.
Health insurance sky-high, no-one cares to ask why.
Now Big Pharma makes the rules. FDA is their tool!

No-one noticed A THING, the real news was MIS-SING!
What news we might hear causes panic and fear.

Oh say can you tell me where our government has gone?
In the land of the sheep, and the home of the bribe
(sorry, that's campaign contribution)
Wake up America, the citizens are losing

How very depressing! It is true that the economy is getting worse and how the banks are putting us in debt. Everyone ought to do something to make this nation better! But great parody though. 5's!
