Mississippi: For Independence Day

1989 Soviet stamps of samovars.
Mississippi
For Independence Day

Sing loud this song of Freedom,

toss your Tea into the bay,

shout to Heaven, “Mississippi!,”

on this Independence Day!

No, no longer will we heed your call

and throw our votes away!

Hey, “Remember Mississippi!”

on this Independence Day!

The donkey's kicked us in the teeth

now one too many times -

with hooves named marx and alinsky

stamped us all with racist crimes,

and now down in Mississippi showed

how low he'll sink the bar:

yes, his only tea is brewed in a

soviet samovar.

So, sing loud this song of Freedom,

toss your Tea into the bay,

shout to Heaven, “Mississippi!,”

on this Independence Day!

No, no longer will we heed your call

and throw our votes away!

Hey, “Remember Mississippi!”

on this Independence Day!

The elephant that's in the room

would rather wear a whig

and dance up some pyrrhic victories

all to the donkey's jig:

and now down in Mississippi showed

he'll gladly bite our hand

as he sips from the same samovar

that bears the donkey's brand.

So, sing loud this song of Freedom,

toss your Tea into the bay,

shout to Heaven, “Mississippi!,”

on this Independence Day!

No, no longer will we heed your call

and throw our votes away!

Hey, “Remember Mississippi!”

on this Independence Day!

Hey, “Remember Mississippi!”

on this Independence Day!
