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
To beat 'em
'Cause there's limits to our liberties
'Least I hope and pray that there are
'Cause those liberal freaks go too far.
Boy: [spoken] But why can't we just make a law against flag burning?
Amendment: [spoken] Because that law would be unconstitutional. But if we

Boy: [spoken] Then we could make all sorts of crazy laws!
Amendment: [spoken] Now you're catching on!
Boy: [spoken] But what if they say you're not good enough to be in the
Amendment: Then I'll destroy all opposition to me
And I'll make Ted Kennedy pay
If he fights back
I'll say that he's gay
