The Huffington Post:

With elections round the corner When the voters start to care About the mess we have created We give you issues that aren’t even there

We give you Homosexual marriage Gonna wreck your family’s life Gay men want your husbands Lesbians will steal your wife

Lies lit up the daytime Till bombs lit up the night Bin Laden sleeps in a cave somewhere While in Iraq our soldiers die and fight

We give you Homosexual marriage Gonna wreck your family’s life Gay men want your husbands Lesbians will steal your wife

Billy Frist and Arlen Spector Know the votes are just not there Orrin Hatch said “Go tell all of your wives” In his sacred Mormon underwear

Gas will be four bucks a gallon Katrina’s wrath is still unfixed The deficit is at an all-time high While Republicans play politics

They give us Homosexual marriage Gonna wreck your family’s life Gay men want your husbands Lesbians will steal your wife

With scandal all around us Indictments everywhere you look We ask ourselves what would Jesus do? He’d said “Hey! Look out, what¹s that over there”

It must be Homosexual marriage Gonna wreck your family’s life Gay men want your husbands Lesbians will steal your wife

Just remember there’s a price paid For each inflammatory thing you say Mathew Sheppard’s safe in heaven dead How many other souls will have to pay

You give them Homosexual marriage It won’t affect your family’s life Gay men don’t want your husband Lesbians won’t steal your wife
