The Lyrics to Neil Young's New Song Impeach The President

Fox "news" (Roger Friedman) said today: "Neil Young’s new album, Living with War, is an incendiary, moving, totally American document of peaceful protest that is going to make a lot of people crazy one way or another." He went on to say later in the article "When Living with War starts streaming on on Friday, my guess is the servers will overheat. The real test will come next week, when the album is available for downloading on several sites."

It's always reason to celebrate when Neil comes out with a new album. It's even sweeter when he comes out with one the week the President's approval ratings hit 32%. This album, recorded in a reported nine days will be a most welcome follow-up to his excellent and recent CDs Prarie Wind and Greendale (not to mentioned Jonathan Demme's recent film about Neil). Rock on!

Let's Impeach The President
by Neil Young

Let’s impeach the president for lying
And leading our country into war
Abusing all the power that we gave him
And shipping all our money out the door
He’s the man who hired all the criminals
The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors
And bend the facts to fit with their new stories
Of why we have to send our men to war
Let’s impeach the president for spying
On citizens inside their own homes
Breaking every law in the country
By tapping our computers and telephones
What if Al Qaeda blew up the levees
Would New Orleans have been safer that way
Sheltered by our government’s protection
Or was someone just not home that day?
Let’s impeach the president
For hijacking our religion and using it to get elected
Dividing our country into colors
And still leaving black people neglected
Thank god he’s cracking down on steroids
Since he sold his old baseball team
There’s lot of people looking at big trouble
But of course the president is clean
Thank God
