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
