Lyrics
Texas! The Friendly State [2022/29/05] [V] Woke up this lovely morning to a bright blue sunny sky. Sat outside, watched, and listened to the songbirds dropping by. Booted up my laptop, squirrels ran around the yard. A Headline cried out at me. The morning lost its charm. [Pre-Chorus] Children dead in Texas. Texas! The Friendly State. [Break] [V] Honestly, lost the calmness this morning brought to me. Switched over to the radio Didn't want to see or read. Didn't want to listen heard this song before. Why in the State of Texas are the children dying for? [C] It's a RIGHT in the State of Texas to carry any type of gun. There's no need for background checks in Texas, guns are fun. Texas has no restrictions based on gender, based on age. Guns solve any problem when you're angry, filled with rage. Texas! Where guns are the oldest craze. [Break] [V] Now in their latest slaughter of nineteen children, two adults. The Governor wouldn't lift a finger to what he knows is at fault. That ass hole lifted restrictions, then has nothing left to say. Then with the gall spouts, "Freedom to all!" while selling for the NRA. [Break] [V] Now in the State of Texas known as the "Lone Star State." Famous for its live music and children's tragic fate. Texas has mass shootings happening through the years. But hey, Texans have no gun laws, so what is there to fear? [B] Statistically, in the US of A, there's a shooting every day. Handguns, rifles, and guns of war. Question what they need those for? Statistically, children pay they've become the favorite prey. Of messed up, fucked up loners, who are easily gun owners. [C] It's a RIGHT in the State of Texas to carry any type of gun. There's no need for background checks because in Texas, guns are fun. Texas has no restrictions based on gender, based on age. Guns solve all your problems when you're angry, filled with rage. Texas! Where guns are the oldest craze. I say, "Texas! The Friendly State. Copyright (c) 2022 by Douglas Murphy
