A long, long time ago.
I can still remember how
The Star Spangled Banner made me smile.
And Ben Franklin took his stance
to give the Republic style a chance

But this administration makes me quiver
With every headline they deliver
Bad news on the Internet
I can’t take one more misstep
Nathan Hale, he would have cried
If he knew about his squandered life
2008 brought new insight
The year that we apologized

So bye, bye Miss American Pride
If the Muslim beats the Mormon we are all gonna cry
And Sharia law, can it be far behind
If on November 6th Old Liberty died?
When we surrender national pride.

The Founding Fathers started with God above,
All the monuments tell us so.
Will the people notice if they steal our soul?
By trading our vote for the rich man’s bowl
And boil the American frog real slow?

Well, I know that you’re against Keystone 
Cause I heard you on your Obama phone
He sings some off and on
I dig the way he says Pah-Kee-Stahn
A Hawaiian with SSN from Connecticut,
From community organizer to muckety-muck 
Wow, that guy has some kind of luck!
Without national pride.
I started singing

Bye bye Miss American Pride
If the Muslim beats the Mormon we are all gonna cry
And Sharia law, can it be far behind
If on November 6th Old Liberty died?
When we surrender national pride.

Now for four years, we’ve been on our own
Our government is funded by a Chinese loan
But that’s not how it used to be
Nice vacations for the king and queen
On Air force One and Two and Three
And all expenses paid by you and me
Oh and while the king was looking down
His club positioned on the ground
The Supreme Court was adjourned
Bad verdict was returned
And while Sasha read a book on Marx
And the Constitution with redacting marks
As summer reading in Martha’s Vineyard Parks.
The day we surrendered pride
We were singing

Bye bye Miss American Pride
If the Muslim beats the Mormon we are all gonna cry
And Sharia law, can it be far behind
If on November 6th Old Liberty died?
When we surrender national pride.

Helter-skelter - Obama health care
All his friends are issued an exemption shelter.
Record debt and rising fast
And the role of the Senate has been recast
As jesters who keep the king from being harassed
And get him through a full term without a budget passed
Now the first-term air is sweet perfume
To politicians marching to Alinsky’s tune
They never missed a chance
To turn us into France!
Without the hope to find goldfield
The sooner his library opening revealed,
There’s just one document to be unconcealed
The day we surrender national pride.

So bye bye Miss American Pride
If the Muslim beats the Mormon we are all gonna cry
And Sharia law, can it be far behind
If on November 6th Old Liberty died?
When we surrender national pride.

Figuring that Kennedy won the race,
Obama no longer flies men to space.
But NASA has a really great outreach plan.
So come on Hillary be nimble and be quick
Libya glows like a roman candlestick
Cause fire is the devil’s only friend
And as we watched you on the stage
We scratched our heads and quickly aged
Wondering what the hell
Possessed you all to tell
That a California video caused the hate
And thanks to Obama’s running mate,
We’ve coined the term, “Benghazigate”
As we surrender national pride.
He was singing

Bye bye Miss American Pride
If the Muslim beats the Mormon we are all gonna cry
And Sharia law, can it be far behind
If on November 6th Old Liberty died?
When we surrender national pride.

I met a pollster who sang the blues
And I asked him for some happy news
But he just smiled and turned away
I cast my ballot in the sacred store
Where Reagan was elected years before
But the man behind the curtain said “Go away!”
And scandals mounted and Glenn Beck screamed
The cover-ups matched as Chicago schemed.
But not a word was spoken
The Press Corps trust was broken
And the two guys we once heard the most,
Bernstein and Woodward from the Washington Post,
They caught the last train for the coast
The day they surrendered national pride.

So, bye bye Miss American Pride
If the Muslim beats the Mormon we are all gonna cry
And Sharia law, can it be far behind
If on November 6th Old Liberty died?
If we surrender national pride.

So, come 'round, Miss American Pride
Let's get behind the Mormon, an impressive guy
Return to our foundations  
With a Reagan landslide
Singing, "Let's restore our national pride."
