Liberation                 [Part 2 of my Peach State Trilogy]

 

Original song lyrics by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

A loose relyric of "Macarena (Bayside Boys Remix)" by the middle aged duet Los Dos Rio.

 

Please read along to my Spoken Verse Performance.

 

 

INTRO

 

"They've stopped trying to reduce flu."

 

 

VERSE 1

 

There's a state in the South East,

 

Symbol for it's a ripe peach.

 

Late to lock down.

 

First to rebound.

 

Got back at it with great speed.

 

Hit obstructions.

 

Repercussions?

 

Still, they decided to proceed.

 

 

CHORUS

 

In Atlanta, they once tried to stage a liberation.

 

Hoped to get a jump on other states in hibernation.

 

Then they learned our President lacked the inclination,

 

For liberation.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

At rallies, fans were delirious,

 

Surely they know he's not serious.

 

Kemp got a good grade,

 

By giving Trump shade.

 

Is he that dumb? Yeah, I'm curious.

 

lol.

 

Anyway, what was Kemp supposed to do!?!

 

It's like they said back in the day:

 

Someone had to be the first.

 

Might as well be him.

 

 

CHORUS

 

In Atlanta, they once tried to stage a liberation.

 

Hoped to get a jump on other states in hibernation.

 

Then they learned, from twitter, Donald lacked the motivation,

.

For liberation.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

The business restart was well planned.

 

Then came the White House reprimand.

 

Bowling alleys share.

 

Balls and footwear,

 

'High fives'? Sure, but they are rare.

 

lol.

 

Unless, of course, it's a strike or spare.

 

I mean, what were they supposed to do!?!

 

Trump's "Liberate" messages were so clear,

 

 

CHORUS

 

In Atlanta, they once tried to stage a liberation.

 

Hoped to get a jump on other states in hibernation.

 

Then they learned El Presidente lacked the inclination,

 

For liberation.

 

 

BRIDGE

 

"I'm not trying to reduce flu."

 

Lib, lib, lib, lib, lib, liberation!

 

Lib, lib, lib, lib, lib, lib, liberation!

 

Liberation!

 

Liberation!

 

Lib, lib, lib, lib, lib, lib, liberation!

 

Yeeeaaaaaaaaaooooooh.

 

Yeeeaaaaaaaaaooooooh.

 

 

VERSE 4

 

While other states are now tearful.

 

Folks in the Peach State are cheerful.

 

Have The Masters,

 

Even faster,

 

Now that folks are not fearful.

 

Unless, of course, hmmm. Well, you know.

 

 

CHORUS

 

In Atlanta, they once tried to stage a liberation.

 

Hoped to get a jump on other states in hibernation.

 

Then they learned from Twitter Donald lacked the motivation,

 

For liberation.

 

 

VERSE 5

 

Based on what pollsters measured.

 

Governors yielded to the pressure.

 

Standards were dropped.

 

Lock-down had flopped.

 

When everyone tired of leisure.

 

Bathed in good news.

 

Received "thank you's".

 

Then smiled, and said: "It's my pleasure."

 

 

CHORUS

 

In Atlanta, they once tried to stage a liberation.

 

Hoped to get a jump on other states in hibernation.

 

Then they learned from Twitter Donald lacked the inclination,

 

For liberation.

 

 

Yeeeaaaaaaaaaooooooh.

 

 

CLOSE

 

Guess which region came back first?

 

Georgia. Georgia.

 

Others learned loosing tastes the worst.

 

Bad, but it beats tofu.

 

 

Yeeeaaaaaaaaaooooooh.

 

 

The End.
