Sing it with me now

A legal immigrant (read: won't be pandered to by Specter/McCain/Kennedy) has the lyrics to a great new song posted on his blog!

Thanks to Polish Immigrant for turning me on to The Right Brothers who sing about everything from illegal aliens to pot to racial profiling. Classic stuff.

NOTE: Singing these in downtown Portland is not recommened as the protestors will throw rocks at you while Randy Leonard insists they have a 1st amendment right to do so...

Here is a much better choice. (Actually, even more creative - the TRB's lyrics - a two year old could have written)

Streaming song, lyrics below (Feel free to sing along):

Jacob's Ladder (Not in My Name)

Jacob's ladder
Like the Sermon on the mountain says dumber got dumb
Hellfire and brimstone swapped for oil and guns
When we're pushing up daisies we all look the same
In the name of the Father, maybe, but not in my name
On this Jacob's ladder, the only way up is down
One step from disaster, two to make the higher ground
Jacob's ladder
And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain
A million lifetimes left dying in the sun
In the streets down in Whitehall, dogs pickin' at the bones
Nine eleven got branded, nine eleven got sold
And there'll be no one left to water all the seeds you sowed
On this Jacob's ladder, the only way up is down
One step from disaster, two to make the higher ground
Jacob's ladder
And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain
On this Jacob's ladder, the only way up is down
One step from disaster, two to make the higher ground
On this Jacob's ladder, the only way up is down
One step from disaster, two to make the higher ground
Jacob's ladder
Puppy dog leader sooner or later
We'll dig up your cellar and try you for murder
(Repeats)
