Too Late to be Known as George the First...

I hadn't planned on posting anything else specifically related to Independence Day...until I read today's AKOTAS.

If you want to doublecheck, there's Wikipedia's article on our Declaration of Independence, or the National Archives' Online Declaration.

Now, sing along!

Oh the world will sing of a U.S. King
A thousand years from now
And not because he passed some laws
Or had that lofty brow
While soldiers die around the world
To no good end at all
We'll all have to slave away
Under Georgie's evil thrall

Incredible as he is inept
Whenever the history books are kept
They'll call him the puppet king of the U.S.
A pox on the puppet king of the U.S.!

He sits alone on a giant throne
Pretendin' he's the king
A little tyke who's rather like
A puppet on a string
And he throws an angry tantrum
if he cannot have his way
And he calls for Rove and he sucks thumb
And he doesn't want to play.

Too late to be known as George the First
He's sure to be known as George the worst
A pox on that puppet king of the U.S!

He taxes the poor but not the rich
And he robs us of our rights
His prisoners keep slippin' down
To where there is no light.
Ah! But while there is a wary man
keeping George in check,
We'll find a way to make him pay
And fix what ol' Georgie wrecked.

That's brilliant!

How long sis it tale you to change "the phony king of england" like that?

Not long. Maybe 10-20 minutes. Of course, most of it didn't need to be changed... That made it much easier. :^)
