lyrics

Everybody get in the hand-basket
We’re all going to hell
Come on everybody get in the hand-basket
We’re all going to hell

The country’s turning into Sodom and Gomorrah
The tap water’s flowing with AIDS and gonorrhea
Just like France, we’re gonna be a Land of Homos
You have to ask, where did my country go?
and who’s to blame?

It’s the immigrants! It’s the Mexicans!
It’s the faggots! And the Lesbians!
It’s the Liberals! And Libertarians!
The intellectuals! The librarians!

So what do we do? Well here’s the plan
Stock up on guns and buy farm land
Run to the people who think like you
and we’ll see you in hell

Everybody get in the hand-basket
We’re all going to hell
Come on everybody get in the hand-basket
We’re all going to hell

With the trannies! And the indigents!
And the atheists! and the Indians!
And the anarchists! and the Aquarians!
and the pot heads! and vegetarians!

Everybody get in the hand-basket
We’re all going to hell
Come on everybody get in the hand-basket
We’re all going to hell

Hello! You’ve been selected from our sweepstakes
For a free luxury vacation for two
On our new Recreational Abortions cruise
Sponsored by Liberal Media Conspiracies
