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

    Very well done!!! We(my husband and I) like to sing together. We would like to learn this and sing it.

    Loved it! Love to see both you and daughter on T.V the same night as I watch conservative news. Heard early afternoon about Rush's cancer and it brought tears. My sister & brother-in-law both died of lung cancer and their son is in stage 4. Prayers for our country and all it's people.

    Laura's choice of song for this parody is spot on, especially given the interpretive significance "American Pie" has for those who've checked it out. (It was significant enough for me to create an entire PowerPoint presentation of that interpretation.) Very nice job on the lyrics too!

    Very good. Can any you answer a question (anyone). In this country a person is innocent until proven guilty (unless you're Mile Flynn). So who's going to explain that to Chuck Schumer. He wasn't to call more witnesses and waste more of my money on this sham. So where does he get the idea the the President must prove his innocence?

    Laura,
    That is absolutely hilarious and sad at the same time. But I love it, the whole shebang put to music, and a classic song everybody can sing. It is brilliant and you should be nominated for an award. Oops, they don't like us either, do they?

    Thanks Gov. Huckabee and Laura for sharing your great talents and patriotism with us all. I feel that many are frustrated with what appears to be a lack of justice when it comes to the treasonous acts of many in government whether on the right or on the left. Let us remember that the gospel of Jesus Christ is what is really important for all of God's children here on earth. And we know from our study of the scriptures that all eventually will be judged of God and receive our eternal rewards or punishment. I am far from perfect as are most of us and have need of Christ's Atonement to receive forgiveness as we honestly repent of our sins. All of us will not escape the judgement of God. So pray for yourselves, your families, and yes - even your enemies, that all will accept the gospel of Jesus Christ and strive to live righteous lives worthy of being with our loved ones including Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ throughout eternity.

    Ain't that the truth!!

    Like the lyrics! My big question is this, with all the blatantly clear evidence of wrong doings by all these big name Democrats, what is the delay to the prosecution of these Criminals against the United States of America? Why is AG Willian Barr taking his time to lock these folks up, is he waiting for a key moment in time to "Drop the Ball" so they will have limited time to find a replacement to fill their spots on the 2020 Ballots?

    Keep up the Great Job Mike, Looking forward to seeing Sara Sanders on Fox News Network and God Bless America!

    Great summary of an American tragedy that is ongoing. Our only hope for justice is in Barr’s hands.

    HAHA! EXCELLENT! I don't watch tv much so the answer to this, I don't know. Have you had Laura Ainsworth sing this on your show?

  • Lee Swann

    Absolutely Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Wish this could be posted, in its entirety on Facebook, or Mike's Newsletter.
    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    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.

  • Stanley Rowe

    Excellent!!! This needs to be played on the Huckabee Show on TBN.

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

  • Ann Thompson

    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!
