Politically Incorrect - Lyrics by Terry G. Reed


Lyrics

Politically Incorrect

( Verse 1 )
A quarter and a penny on the table,
face up, starring at me,
I wondered what they really thought
about the person in the news made to
apologize for speaking their mind,
just like George and Abe had taught.

( Chorus )
You're Politically Incorrect if you
offend someone today,
even if you tell the truth in what you’re
trying to say.
Your freedom of expression is fading
away,
The Politically Incorrect need to take
a stand today.

( Verse 2 )
"In God We Trust" is written on our
coins,
how long it will be there, you can
guess as well as I can.
Some whinny group of lost souls will
convince a politician that the values
of our country don't fit into their plans.

( Chorus )

( Bridge )
I don't need society to hand me a
phony script,
The truth can't be rewritten for
someone's benefit.

( Chorus )

Your freedom of expression is fading
away.
The Politically Incorrect need to take
a stand today.
