    Simple Song of Freedom -- Midnight Marauder | Excellence in Podcasting Networks

    Lyrics:

    Come and sing a simple song of freedom
    Sing it like you've never sung before
    Let it fill the air
    Tell the people everywhere
    We the people here don't want a czar

    Hey there, mister President can you hear me?
    I don't want your brand of hope and change
    I just want to keep more of the pay that comes to me
    You're taxing us to death and that's a shame

    Come and sing a simple song of freedom
    Sing it like you've never sung before
    Let it fill the air
    Tell the people everywhere
    We the people here don't want a czar

    Four hundred million are are you watching?
    Most of what they do is made of lies
    But just between you and me, isn't it all too clear to see
    The politicians just ain't on our side.

    Come and sing a simple song of freedom
    Sing it like you've never sung before
    Let it fill the air
    Tell the people everywhere
    We the people here don't want a czar

    Hey there madam speaker, are you busy?
    We can never get you on the line
    We'd like to let you know we'll all be out to vote
    And canning your ass is gonna be oh so fine

    Come and sing a simple song of freedom
    Sing it like you've never sung before
    Let it fill the air
    Tell the people everywhere
    We the people here don't want a czar

    Now no doubt some folks enjoy controlling others
    Like Obama, Pelosi and Reid
    So let's all show them now, just who's in charge and how
    And vote them all out as we sing

    Come and sing a simple song of freedom
    Sing it like you've never sung before
    Let it fill the air
    Tell the people everywhere
    We the people here don't want a czar

    I said Let it fill the air
    Tell politicians everywhere
    We don't want you in our lives any more

    When I saw your post the other night, MM, I immediately thought of this one, from The Last Waltz. Makes a nice companion piece, I think.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aM-MBECuBoc"]YouTube - Dry Your Eyes - Neil Diamond & The Band - The Last Waltz[/ame]

    Dry your eyes and take your song out, it's a newborn afternoon.
    And if you can't recall the singer can you still recall the tune.
    Dry your eyes and play it slowly like you're marching off to war;
    Sing it like you always wanted, like we sang it once before.
    And from the center of the circle to the midst of the waiting crowd,
    If it ever be forgotten sing it long and sing it loud and come dry your eyes.

    And he taught us more about living than we ever cared to know,
    But we came to find the secret and we never let it go.
    And it was more than being holy and it was less than being free,
    And if you can't recall the reason can you hear the people sing.
    Right through the lightning and the thunder to the dark side of the moon,
    To that distant falling angel that descended much too soon
    And come dry your eyes.

    Come dry your eyes.

    THis one is really good MM. Your voice is getting so much better, less pitchy. (said in Simon Cowell voice) LOL

    You're a good story teller and you have a great Radio Voice as I have always told you.

    She's desperately trying to sell that spin from the Dems that if we just chew this shit sandwich they crammed in our mouths for awhile, we'll like it and agree it's good, and never wonder why that if it's so good, why won't congressional dems also eat it!:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    No I am trying to bring you the truth which is you are in the minority on your hate for health care reform.

    Its 25 % guys that agree with you.
