The Lyrics

I am a songwriter of original songs. Have just finished my 35th original song but still write song parodies when the mood strikes me. Some will like this, and some not I suppose, but this is what I had to write, regardless.
Amerika the Ugly(America the Beautiful)

Oh ugly is the gray blue skies
the land I used to love
The grass was green
and skies so clean
Clouds snow white as a dove

Chorus
Amerika! Amerika!
What have you done to me?
I used to so love living here
but now I have to flee!

I can't live here
the things I fear
surround me every day
Bad cops and drugs
and evil thugs
The rotten TSA!

Chorus

Made up my mind
and packed my bags
I'm leaving here today
My heart is broke
of things unspoke
And now I'm on my way

Chorus

How bad are they going to grope you on your way out. Once you leave here, where do you go?

Bad as it gets, sometimes, it's still the greatest and most free spot on earth.

Carol - Three fives for execution and heartfelt belief. I'll stay behind and try to make things better. BTW, I'd like to hear your original songs...I bet they are very good. ;D

To--Old Man Ribber, Go to this site. It is the site of my collaborater's artist page. I write the lyrics of the songs we have done together, he does the rest out of his home studio, from the writing the music score, to the instruments, individual tracks, vocals, and final mix down. Look for any song that states "flack & hartman". Those are the most recent songs we have written together. Will check back in a couple of days. Would like to get your feedback on our songs. Thanks for your comment. Appreciate it. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_music.cfm?bandID=715577

I pretty much agree with LP, although things get worse every day. Checked out the site you referenced. I don't care for country music, but I appreciate the professionalism and effort of you and your collaborator.
