Time For Fixin The Lies

I have adapted the lyrics of  I-Feel-Like-I’m-Fixin’-to-Die Rag by Country Joe & The Fish (Joe McDonald wrote it in 1965 and performed it at Woodstock in 1969 http://www.rockcellarmagazine.com/2013/01/07/country-joe-fish-the-greatest-protest-song-of-the-60s/#sthash.8zcw6Guf.dpbs)…I call it “Time for Fixin’ the Lies Rag:”

Time for Fixin’ the Lies Rag” by Bill Dahl – melody by Country Joe & The Fish
Well…come on sensible Americans, 
Uncle Sam needs our help again.
Trump’s got us all in terrible jam, 
Around the globe – throughout the land.
Pick up your phone and get ready to run, 
We’re gonna have a whole lotta fun.
 
CHORUS

And its 1,2,3 what are we fightin’ for?
Please ask us we do give a dam, our next stop is Washington,
and its 5,6,7 open up the White House gates. 
Well there ain’t no time to wonder why…WHOOPIE! –  we can’t stand the lies!
 
Healthcare for all is way too slow, one reason it’s time for go-go-go.
There’s plenty of changes to be made, right wing agenda – don’t make the grade.
We know when they drop their next domestic policy bomb, 
The coordinates will be all wrong.
 
CHORUS
 
And its 1,2,3 what are we fightin’ for?
Please ask us we do give a dam, our next stop is Washington,
and its 5,6,7 open up the White House gates. 
Well there ain’t no time to wonder why…WHOOPIE! –  we will end the lies!


Now come on people lets move fast, our big chance is here at last.
It’s us they fear and you they dread, time to advance uncommon sense instead,
We know that progress can only be won, when we blow their agenda to kingdom come.

 
CHORUS
 
And its 1,2,3 what are we fightin’ for?
Please ask us we do give a dam, our next stop is Washington,
and its 5,6,7 open up the White House gates. 
Well this ain’t no time to accept their lies…WHOOPIE! –  We’re gonna replace these guys!


Now come on mothers throughout the land, pack your bags for Washington,
Come on fathers don’t hesitate, save your family before its too late,
Time is tickin’ on all our clocks, It’s time to march and wear holes in our socks!

 
CHORUS
 
And its 1,2,3 what are we fightin’ for?
Please ask us we do give a dam, our next stop is Washington,
and its 5,6,7 open up the White House gates. 
Well there ain’t no time to wonder why…WHOOPIE! –  It’s time to fix the lies!
Neo-Nazis have no place, Not in the U.S. – not the human race.
Come on America, extinguish all this hate.
It’s time to rise up and show these guys the gate!
CHORUS
 
And its 1,2,3 what are we fightin’ for?
Please ask us we do give a dam, our next stop is Washington,
and its 5,6,7 open up the White House gates. 
Well there ain’t no time to wonder why…WHOOPIE! –  Let’s sing for Trump’s bye-bye!
