Cover / Parody: Some Country That We Used to Own

Post  Dellinger on Sun Jul 29, 2012 7:17 pm



The Sovereign:

Now and then I think of when we were in control
When we assumed you were so happy, we all could die.
We told ourselves that we were rightfully
Living in the lap of luxury
But that was then and it’s a time we still remember.

We had got addicted to a certain call for power.
Always gunning for more land, always more land.
So when you said that you would not pay a cent
Towards some tax we had to implement
I’ll admit that I was mad you thought we were over.

But you didn’t have to break from us
Make out like we were some tyrants and start a revolution
And we don’t even need your love
But you say we were oppressors and that feels so rough.
No you didn’t have to embargo
Hire mercs, buy some weapons and harass our forces.
I’m guessing we can’t blame you, though
‘cause now you’re just some country that we used to own.

Now you’re just some country that we used to own.
Now you’re just some country that we used to own.

[[ musical interlude ]]

The Revolutionaries:
Now and then we think of all the times you screwed us over
Having us believe that your doctrines were just and fair
But we don’t wanna live that way
We’ll have our independence day
We said you’d have to let us go
And you wouldn’t be relying on some country that you used to own

The Sovereign:
But you didn’t have to break from us
Make out like were some tyrants and our reign was over.
And we don’t even need your trade
But you’ve cut all our supplies and now we feel betrayed.
No you didn’t have to stoop so low.
Ask other countries for some help and cause some trouble.
I guess that we deserved it though,
And now you ‘re just some country that we used to own.

Some country…
(( We used to own ))
Some country…
(( That we used to own ))

Some country…
(( We used to own ))
Some country-eee-eee…
