The Pied Piper Of Crawford
(Sheryl Zettner)


[2005]

Song about what patriotism REALLY should be: taking care of one's country...
"I was motivated to write this song due to the misinterpretation that patriotism is about killing people when a leader shoves an unwilling country into war."
In this country there's a choice
If you want to raise your voice
When our leaders aren't aware
of the homeless in despair

And are eager to avoid
Problems of the unemployed
Patriots will take a stand
To protect their fatherland.

All our battles and our fights
Help to save our civil rights
Make our country strong and free
And help restore democracy.

If you vote that's just the start
Now consider taking part
If we want our problems solved
Everyone must get involved

That means you and that means me
Even if we don't agree
People must participate
In a democratic state

All our battles and our fights
Help to save our civil rights
Make our country strong and free
And help restore democracy.
