We got tired of taking orders from the rich
So we drowned a little tea, and we made some history
Why did we resist? Just remember this
Everyone in government was white
Women had to fight for every right
The news was full of lies to confuse and terrorize
while the rich stayed rich, and the poor were neutralized
Laws were passed without a rhyme or reason
and when we disagreed, they called it treason
The king began to take away our rights
He taxed us once, and then he taxed us twice
His tantrums were notorious, even when victorious
and nothing satisfied his appetite
Those who said "This ruler is psychotic"
were told "You aren't very patriotic"
He turned us into immigrants with callous treachery
We went from being citizens to being refugees
But the immigrants became Americans by name
and freed us from the yoke of tyranny.
I'm so glad it's only ancient history
'cause it could never happen here to me
