New Shire Choir Song: “Thanks but no Tanks!”

TankThe Shire Choir has been performing this song to the tune of Three Dog Night’s “Joy to the World” at city councilors’ homes. Some like it, one threatened us with arrest. Courtesy ThanksbutnoTanks.com:

City council wants a BEARCAT.
Uncle gives ‘em out for free.
They’re telling us that it’s to catch the terrorists,
But they’ve set their sights on you and me.
They’ll be using it on you and me.

That’s why we’re singing:
CHORUS:
Thanks–but no tanks.
Thanks–but no tanks.
Thank you for nothing city bureaucrats.
Thanks… but no bearcat!

Cops can do whatever they please–
They’re backed by City Hall.
They take laws, break them, or just make them up
Like there isn’t any law at all

It’s like there isn’t any law at all
CHORUS:
Thanks–but no tanks.
Thanks–but no tanks.
Thank you for nothing, city bureaucrats.
Thanks… but no bearcats!

You rule by [force], and not by law,
Like Orwell’s 1984.
Getting an attack truck, makes that clear–
It’s time to say “No more!”
We won’t take, or give any more!
CHORUS:
Thanks–but no tanks.
Thanks–but no tanks.
Thank you for nothing, city bureaucrats.
Thanks… but no bearcats!
CHORUS:
Thanks–but no tanks.
Thanks–but no tanks.
Thank you for nothing, every bureaucrat.
Thanks… but no bearcats!
