Losing My Republic — The Song

The story goes that at the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention, Ben Franklin was approached by citizens curious about what kind of government had been created. Franklin’s response, “A republic, if you can keep it.” Will we?

Sung to the tune “Losing My Religion” by R.E.M.

Covid is bigger
It’s bigger
Than us and that’s what they say
The lengths that they will go to
The distance demanded
Oh no, don’t say too much
They set it up
Harris in the corner
Biden in the spotlight
Losing my republic
Trying to keep up with them
Canceled if we don’t do as they want
Oh no, don’t say too much
Facebook says that’s enough
YouTube deletes dissenting
In church you cannot sing
Google watches and saw you try
Every keystroke
Of every waking hour
No choosing your opinion
Twitter to keep an eye on you
BLM targets your workplace, too
Oh no, don’t say too much
They set it up
Consider this
Consider this
The vote of the century
Consider this
Marxist
That brings us to our knees
Failed
Where has it succeeded
In all the years past
Now don’t say too much

Antifa won’t accept dissenting
In church you cannot sing
Democrats won’t let you freelance
It is part of their dream
Their socialist dream
Harris in the corner
Biden in the spotlight
Losing my republic
Trying to keep up with them
Canceled if we don’t do as they want
Oh no, don’t say too much
Facebook says that’s enough
Listen to Pelosi laughing
Listen to her next thing
To give up more of your freedom
It is not just a dream
Wake up
Step up
It is not a dream, stop their dream, stop their dream

I wrote these parody lyrics and welcome any musicians out there who would like to put them to music as a parody song. Sorry, I only have 7 weeks of cello lessons/practice so far and that will not do this justice, especially to your ears. Heh.
