New Lyrics: American Pie

While Facebook was down, I thought I’d write a political song. If this gets shared (and/or retweeted) enough, I’ll even grab a guitar and my iPhone, and sing it on YouTube… In other words, if you want to hear me sing, share and retweet! Or someone else can sing it – just mention me if you do…

Long, long, time ago, I can still remember,
How our congress used to make me smile.
And I knew if Nancy had her chance,
That she could make the White House dance,
And maybe she’d be happy for a while.

But February made me shiver,
With every paper they delivered.
Bad news on the doorstep.
I couldn’t take one more step.

I can’t remember if I cried,
When I read that CNN had lied,
But something touched me deep inside,
The day that Facebook died.

So bye-bye First Amendment goodbye.
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry.
The media was telling all of their lies,
Singing this will be the day that Trump cries….
This will be the day that Trump cries…….

Did you hear AOC’s speech,
And do you think her brain is out of reach?
If Pelosi tells you so…
Do you believe in Schumer’s soul,
Can Bernie make free healthcare go?
And can you get illegals to vote at the polls?

Well I know the budget will not live,
‘Cause I saw them harass conservatives.
They kicked them with their shoes,
Until they were black and blue!

I was a lonely teenage broncin’ buck,
When George Bush Senior became a lame duck,
But I knew that I was of luck,
The day that Facebook died.

I started singing:

Bye-bye First Amendment goodbye.
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry.
The media was telling all of their lies,
Singing this will be the day that Trump cries….
This will be the day that Trump cries…….

Now for two years we’ve been on our own,
And Trump’s accomplishments have only grown,
But that’s not how it’s ‘sposed to be…..
When AOC sang for the Speaker queen,
In a speech she’d written in a commie dream,
And a voice, that came from Xi Jingping…

Ah but while Nancy was looking down
AOC stole her Speaker crown.
The Senate was adjourned.
No new bills were returned!
And Lenin read from the book of Marx,
Bernie applauded from the park,
And we sang dirges in the dark,
The day that Facebook died.

We were singing:

Bye-bye First Amendment goodbye.
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry.
The media was telling all of their lies,
Singing this will be the day that Trump cries….
This will be the day that Trump cries…….

Bye-bye First Amendment goodbye.
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry.
The media was telling all of their lies,
Singing this will be the day that Trump cries….
This will be the day that Trump cries…….
