The Lyrics

This is nothing against the good people in Texas. This is about those adorable right winger Texans that are showing the love to their paying constituents. Open carry. The 'reparative therapy for gays' plank in their platform. Rewriting science in school textbooks. And capital punishment par excellence (catching up on Virginia).
We’re sage and bright
And oh so right
We got the smarts in Texas

We all look fly
With weapons high
We like our guns in Texas

The gays we’ll prune
And fix them soon
They aren’t our type in Texas

We think our gov
Should cure their love
You should be straight in Texas

Those science guys
Are none too wise
We change the facts in Texas

So school book texts
Will be an-nexed
We love our kids in Texas

See the felons wail
Inside our jail
You will be caught in Texas

Let’s kill them all
Then shop in mall
We keep it light in Texas.

So the Texas Republicans think they can turn gays straight? I'd almost believe the Democrats paid them to put that plank in their platform. But I'm afraid they did that on their own. This country has a lot of real problems that need to be dealt with before we can worry about disengaygement.

True, that. If you have to put that on your platform, you've got bigger problems than you're alleged trying to solve.

I'm neither left nor right, but what I do disdain is stupidity. Fives.

If MAXWELL Smart was in Texas, the State's average IQ would rise.
