Boy: [spoken] Hey, who left all this garbage lying on the steps of
Amendment: [spoken] I'm not garbage.

                  I'm an amendment to be
                  Yes, an amendment to be
                  And I'm hoping that they'll ratify me
                  There's a lot of flag burners
                  Who have got too much freedom
                  I wanna make it legal
                  For policemen

           If he fights back
           I'll say that he's gay
