BOUGHT AND PAID



We got a deficit high • Printing dollars like a pouring rain • We got a leader who lies • When he says that he’s got the change • They keep em organized • Pulling dues from their take home pay • They called a general strike • And the legislators ran away • Working the system like a three card monty • Filling the streets with signs of socialist rage • Haven’t you heard about the class war coming? • Bussing the outrage in • You know it’s bought and paid • It’s their stock and trade • It’s all union made • It’s all bought and paid • It’s the American Dream • We can all have a piece of the pie • You build your expertise • Go get yours baby • I’ll get mine • But now you’re trying to say • That you don’t have enough to get by • You can’t find a way • You’re gonna take it from the other guy • Working the system like a three card monty • Filling the streets with signs of socialist rage • Haven’t you heard about the class war coming? • Bussing the outrage in • You know they’re bought and paid • Stock and trade • It’s all union made • They’re all bought and paid • Distortion and Lies • Working the angles • The taxpayer dies • I’m grabbing my ankles • Rigging the system • It’s pissing me off • Feels like a fisting • Turn your head and cough • Working the system like a three card monty • Filling the streets with signs of socialist rage • Haven’t you heard about the class war coming? • Bussing the outrage in • You know it’s bought and paid • It’s their stock and trade • It’s all union made • It’s all bought and paid • Bought and paid • It’s the stock and trade • It’s all union made • You know they’re bought and paid • It’s all bought and paid

TAXIN MY TREE



I grow a tree • It’s my money maker • I water each day with my deeds and my brain • The roots are my family and the trunk is my savior • The branches protect me from the wind and the rain • Now the government fee • Is taxing my tree • They say they can grow one much better than me • And they try to create • A utopian state • Where everything’s free to fill everyone’s plate • My tree grows high from the earth into the sky • The fruit’s not free because • The government keeps • Taxin My Tree • Taxin My Tree • All of my friends they have trees of their own • The fruit is their clothes and their cars and their homes • They try to maintain some level of sane • That will feed them through winter • Till spring comes again • But the government fees • They’re taxing our trees • As well as the dirt and the rain and bees • They're no longer ours • They’ve taxed all the flowers • They’ve sold all our seeds to build their ivory towers • My tree grows high from the earth into the sky • The fruit’s not free because • The government keeps • Taxin My Tree • Keeps Taxin My Tree • Taxin My Tree • My tree grows high from the earth into the sky • The fruit’s not free because • The government keeps • Taxin My Tree • They’re Taxin My Tree • Taxin My Tree




                                                




FOR ISRAEL



When Pharaoh Ruled • In days of old • Moses said • Let my people go • Through ages since • Through Hitler's Crimes • The chosen lived • Her people survived • Her People have thrived • Forever we stand by her side • The road is long • For Israel • Come no harm • For Israel • Stand up strong • For Israel • I sing my song • For Israel • For Israel • Balfour said • By its decree • A homeland made • Beside the sea •

Then in ‘48 • By the victor's hand • The UN gave • Her people the land • A small bit of sand • A place for her nation to stand • The road is long • For Israel • Come no harm • For Israel • Stand up strong • For Israel • I sing my song • For Israel • For Israel • Through shrouds of hate Through the lens of time • You see one state • Who's history shines • As evil plots • The solution's end • I cast my lot • Forever her friend • Good tidings I send • Her children I swear to defend • Yeah • Yeah • The road is long • For Israel • Come no harm • For Israel • Stand up strong • For Israel • I sing my song • For Israel • For Israel • The road is long • For Israel • Come no harm • For Israel • Stand up strong • For Israel • I sing my song • For Israel • For Israel


                                                             


CLOSE THE BORDER



A southern invasion is smothering our nation • Bringing in chaos and crime • The promise of government social assistance • Encourages millions to try • Violence spills over • Our citizens know there • Are limits to what they can do • The misguided leader just offers more theatre And says that the problem is you • Close the border or • This country’s over and it’s • Mental disorder not to • Close the border • Close it right now • Escaping corruption they sneak in disruption • Has anyone got common sense? • The incoming swarm is becoming the norm • And the people screaming build us a fence! • Coyotes, drug runners, Mexican mafia • Evil pouring in like a flood • Murder spills over our too porous border • And fills up the desert with blood • Close the border or • This country’s over and it’s • Mental disorder not to • Close the border • Close it right now • Seal off the border • No hesitation • The people order • Defend our nation • Close the border • With shock and awe • Restore the order • Enforce the freakin law! • Immigration’s fine • Take your place in line • Do it legal like everyone else • But don’t be a crook • Do it by the book • And earn a share of America’s wealth • But first • Close the border or • This country’s over and it’s • Mental disorder not to • Close the border • Close it right now • Close the border or • This country’s over and it’s • Mental disorder not to • Close the border • Let’s do it right now!



                                                       





THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE   Saw a young Marine in an airport



I saw a young Marine in an airport • Sitting on his duffle bag all alone • Another battle-scarred, war-weary hero • Heading back to a place he calls home • I thought to shake his hand and maybe thank him • For volunteering to take up the fight • But instead I turned to my gate • You see I didn’t want to miss my flight • Yeah I was in a hurry • And that Sunday sitting in a church pew • Her Navy medals described where she’d been • I would have thanked her but I had to get home • You see the playoffs were about to begin • Yeah that’s right, I was busy • Thank you for your service • Why are those words so hard to say? • They put their lives in the line of fire • To keep us safe at home every day • And everything I have • I owe to those who paid the price • I wish I knew better words to tell them • For their courage and sacrifice • I’d thank them for their service • Saturday pancakes at the I-Hop • My six year old boy by my side • Dirt covered Little League uniform • He wore a blood crusted elbow with pride • We saw a few booths down a wounded warrior • A prosthetic where his leg used to be • I asked the waitress to bring me his tab • He’s done quite enough already for me • Went to pay my bill at the counter • I looked around and saw my son was gone • But there he stood next to that wounded warrior • In full salute • Tall and Strong • Then with one strong leg and a prosthetic • The man maneuvered from booth to the aisle • He snapped to attention and returned the salute • You should’ve seen my little boy smile • I walked up to that man and held out my hand • Thank you for your service • That’s all I really want to say • The man shook my hand and said, “You’re Welcome” • I’d do it all again any day • And I’m grateful for your kindness • And it fills my heart with pride • But in the heat and fury of the battle • I did it just for those guys by my side • I appreciate your support • All those years ago • Hell no we wouldn’t go • To fight in Vietnam • We thought our cause was just • But then it turned to rust and slowly I found out who I am • I’m an American • The ride home took us both in silence • Till my boy turned to me deep in thought • Daddy why’d the soldier say he’d do it again? • When he lost his leg the last time he fought • I said It seems to be something kinda special • Only those in uniform understand • That makes them willing to go off and fight for us To honor and preserve our great land • My boy nodded his head • I think he got it • Thank you for your service • That’s all I really want to say You put your lives in the line of fire • To keep us safe at home every day • And everything I have and everything I do • I owe to you who pay the price • I wish I knew better words to thank you • For your courage and sacrifice • I thank you for your service
