AMERICAN SPIES

A parody by Laura Ainsworth

A long, long time ago

Old J. Edgar Hoover liked to use the FBI to spy

And he thought it would be okay for him to wiretap MLK

He did it, but we found out by and by

 

And now we know that JFK did

And we can show that LBJ did

Then there’s Richard Nixon

So much that needed fixin’

 

The FBI went so insane

That they even bugged Goldwater’s plane

And now they’ve spied on Trump’s campaign

Can’t let...our freedom…die

 

So, bye-bye, you American spies

You were tailing and surveilling; we uncovered your lies

You thought you’d win and we would never be wise,

But Election Day would be a surprise

Election Day would be a surprise

 

Did Steele write the dossier, and did Brennan at the CIA

Leak it all to Harry Reid?

Now did you assume that Trump would lose

Did you think Hillary would choose

To keep you with her? Was it all agreed?

 

Well, we know you were in love with “her” because

Strzok and Page were undeterred

They both ignored the rules

They were both behaving like fools

 

They were so lonely and so oversexed

They would get excited when they sent a text

But they couldn’t guess what happened next:

That Hillary would LOSE!

 

And now we’re singin’: Bye-bye, you American spies

You were tailing and surveilling; we uncovered your lies

You thought you’d win and we would never be wise

But Election Day would be a surprise

Election Day would be a surprise

 

So then Mike Flynn, he was out of luck

Got ambushed by Sally Yates and Strzok

And that’s not how it’s s’posed to be

Well, they spied upon the transition team

In a plan they borrowed from John Dean

And accused Mike Flynn of perjury

 

Oh, and Flynn agreed to take a deal

His “lying,” though, was never real

The courtroom was a joke

Mike Flynn, he was broke!

 

And while Brennan ranted on TV

And Comey lectured endlessly

We hoped and prayed we’d never see

The day...our freedom died

 

Now we’re singin’: Bye-bye, you American spies

You were tailing and surveilling; we uncovered your lies

You thought you’d win and we would never be wise

But Election Day would be a surprise

Election Day would be a surprise

 

Waiting, waiting, more investigating

And all inspired by the worst Trump-hating

Dems in Congress came unglued

And Mueller, he was out for blood

The leaking was more like a flood

With Acosta...in the press room...being rude

But Sarah Sanders joined the fray

She kept the howling press at bay

Acosta was a jerk

Oh, but it’s all in a day’s work!

And in Congress, they were in a tiff

Pelosi, Nadler, Adam Schiff

To jump off that impeachment cliff

It’s so amusing now

 

‘Cause now we’re singin’: Bye-bye, you American spies

You were tailing and surveilling; we uncovered your lies

You thought you’d win and we would never be wise

But Election Day would be a surprise

Election Day would be a surprise

 

Oh, and here we all are, learning more

What’s Sara Carter got in store?

And Solomon is way ahead ---- so come on,

–-- Tell the story, tell it quick

This thing has really made us sick

And liars need to pay for what they’ve said

 

Oh, the liars, they should all get sued

Americans did not “collude”

No, wait, that’s not quite true

‘Cause Hillary, it’s YOU!!!

 

And when we figure out the full extent

Of what you did, with full “intent”

We’ll wish you could finally be sent

To Rikers Island, too.

 

Now we’re singin’: Bye-bye, you American spies

You were tailing and surveilling; we uncovered your lies

You thought you’d win and we would never be wise

But Election Day would be a surprise

Election Day would be a surprise

 

Attorney Gen’ral William Barr, you’ll have to be our guiding star

‘cause you refuse to look away

You’ll dig into the FBI, and find out how they came to spy

On a man named Carter Page, who had no say

It may go higher than we dreamed

The liars lied, and the schemers schemed

Jeff Sessions was a token

While FISA laws were broken

That’s why Barr is back, to find out how,

Before he takes his final bow

And what he’ll tell us...holy cow

Our freedom almost died

 

But now we’re singin’: Bye-bye, you American spies

You were tailing and surveilling; we uncovered your lies

You thought you’d win and we would never be wise

But Election Day would be a surprise

Election Day would be a surprise

 

Now we’re singin’: Bye-bye, you American spies

You were tailing and surveilling; we uncovered your lies

You thought you’d win and we would never be wise

But Election Day would be a surprise

    Although I had heard the parody song before, I just had to listen to it again. Well done, Laura Ainsworth; the facts, along with the spying and lying, are all there.

    Excellent and quite true a lovely parody and fortunately HRC lost as we'd be in a disasterous position had she won.

    Loved it!! A perfect summary of the whole sad mess! But now the repeated chorus is stuck in my brain on an endless loop - lol!

    This is absolutely brilliant!!! Kudos to the ones who produced this song, and may it go viral on the internet, in spite of Google and Facebook blockades.
    Blessings, Governor Mike!

    Mike, WOW! That song Laura did is absolutely AWESOME!! THX Laura! Using American Pie is also quite smart, as we all have some skin in these games being played by those American Spies and past Administrations. Keep it going and God Bless you all.

    This music parody is great! The words tell the true story magnificently, fitting perfectly in an easy manner (which is not easy to accomplish), then set to music in tune with the message. Thank you, Laura Ainsworth, and may God bless you wonderfully.

    Brilliant! BRILLIANT!!!!!!!! I thoroughly enjoyed the satire, which delivers an appropriate punch in the you-know-where to the you-know-who! Very cathartic!

    I cannot believe it! You have the entire last two years in a song! Unbelievable! This is sooo
    good, you have to send it to the Dems because they will never listen to it unless it is sent to
    as many as possible. I just LOVE it! Congrats! Cudo's! Whatever is good. This is brillant!

    I am memorizing this song. It needs to be on radio stations everywhere in America and around the world. It's not only educational but down right hysterical. Thanks for helping me find some comic relief from this Great American Tragedy.

    Sorry, but in my opinion, the thought/hope that those in charge of the coup attempt will ever go to trial and/or prison is pipe dream, smoke and mirrors illusion to keep the patriots from rebelling until we HAVE lost virtually all of our freedoms. Don't believe me? Better research just how many Trump appointees/nominees are in favor of gun confiscation - including both Sessions and Barr. The SECOND protects the WHOLE and the swamp denizens will keep chipping away at it, one group at a time, until it's gone.

    Outstanding! Destined to be a number one hit and should be released the minute Barr secures the first indictment!!

    Had to read the words because the sound kept cutting out. I think Facebook does that intentionally. The words are great and I agree.

    Very creative writing and very good voice. Needs to be played during 2020 campaign. Thanks for the info and laughs.
