Battle Hymn of the Occupation

Harrison max Pfingsten

Dear Grandmother needs feeding for the rat’s been at her store

And little Red can’t bring her bread when she can find no more.

Her house now quakes divided and the wolf is at the door

The weak are preyed upon

Tory Tory how you screwed us

Tory Tory how you screwed us

Tory Tory how you screwed us

The weak are preyed upon

The people have gone bankrupt while the princes’ profits soar

What peasants use to feed themselves, lords use for keeping score.

The grumbles of the rich drown out the wailing of the poor

And all the jobs are gone

[Chorus] And all the Jobs are gone

Feudalism isn’t dead, you’ll find fiefdoms galore

Our nation sells her favors off like any common whore

She and her friends each take a bite and leave us just the core

Our nation’s wealth is pawned.

[Chorus] Our nation’s wealth is pawned

They’ll chat, snug in their castles, heedless of the masses’ roar

“The whining of the commoners is always such a bore.”

“The plebs are getting restless. We should start another war”

The battle line’s been drawn.

[Chorus] The Battle Line’s Been Drawn

Merchant of Light, you might enjoy the essay "Heading Down the Road to Disunion," which you can find at ourfuture.org, just Google the title and that site, should get you there and a few more Civil War tunes.

I know they're not Tory's but they're the next thing to it, supporters of an unaccountable system of control. Besides, couldnt think of anything else to replace Glory I suppose glory glory how you screwed us would also work
