The New Battle of New Orleans
In Twenty-O-Five Katrina let 'er rip
Took dead aim at the coast of Mississip'
Blew Pascagoula and some other towns to smithereens
Then she set her sights on the town of New Orleans
And the levees caved in and the water started risin'
And the people started climbin' up on the roof
Reporters showed up and started televisin'
And started pointing fingers and messin' with the truth
Chorus And they blamed George Bush and they blamed the head of FEMA
Global warming played a part in it too don't you know
Louie Farrakan said Bush blew up the levees
Well I guess he saw it all from his U.F.O.
They had a whole bunch of school busses ready to go
But they never cranked 'em up 'cause the mayor said "no"
Said they weren't good enough for folks to ride on
Then he told 'em all to walk to the Super Dome
Law and order left town and the gangs took over
And committed every kind of unthinkable sin
They shot up the town and trashed the Super Dome
And they showed it on Fox and CNN
Chorus And they stole TV's and they stole fine jewelry
Everybody got a new pair of Nike tennis shoes
Stole guns, DVD's, shopping carts full of beer (fur coats, cold beer)
Well they even stole some stuff that they couldn't even use
Then the mayor started cussin' and he started complainin'
Defendin' his actions on the radio
Said the Federal Government was at fault and he was blamin'
Everybody but hisself and Governor Blanco
Chorus And he blamed George Bush and he blamed the head of FEMA
Then a bunch of other politicians all jumped in
And the Reverend Jesse Jackson just couldn't stay away
He just had to show up and pontificate again
I heard this on the radio a month ago and LOVE it
