A Few Words In Defense of Our Country (保衞國家的幾句話) - Randy Newman

Written by:Randy Newman

I'd like to say a few words in defense of our country

 

Whose people aren't bad nor are they mean

 

Now the leaders we have

 

While they're the worst that we've had

 

Are hardly the worst this poor world has seen

 

It's teens to page the Shaw

 

Take the Caesars for example

 

Why with the first few of them

They were sleeping with their sister

Stashed little boys in swimming pools

And burned down the city

 

And one of 'em one of 'em

His own horse to be counsel of the empire

That's like vice president or something

 

That's not a very good example

 

Here's one Spanish inquisition

 

Put people in a terrible position

 

I don't even like to think about it

 

Sometimes I like to think about it

 

Just a few words in defense of our country

 

Whose time at the top could be coming to an end

 

We don't want your love

 

Respect at this point's pretty much out of the question

 

Times like these we sure could use a friend

 

Hitler Stalin men who need no introduction

 

King Leopold of Belgium that's right

Everyone thinks he's so great

 

Well he owned the Congo he tore it up too

 

Took the diamond took the silver took the gold

 

Know he left 'em with malaria

 

A president once said

 

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself

 

Now things like we're supposed to be afraid

 

It's patriotic in fact color coded

 

What we supposed to be afraid of

 

Why of being afraid

 

That's what terror means doesn't it

 

That's what it used to mean

 

Pisses me off a little

That I think this supreme court's gonna outlive me

 

Couple young Italian fellas

And a brother on the court now too

 

But I defy you anywhere in the world

To find me

Two Italians as tight asses

As the two Italians we got

 

And as for the brother

Well Pluto's not a planet anymore either

 

The end of an empire is messy at best

 

This empire's ending like all the rest

 

Like the Spanish armada adrift on the sea

 

We're adrift in the land of the brave

 

The home of the free

 

Goodbye

 

Goodbye

 

Goodbye
