Nation Rap

Chorus
Getting burned, getting taxed, tell Parliament to get up off our backs
Tired of all the intolerable Acts, Redcoats pushing us to the max

Verse 1
To go west of the AMs we are not free, Parliament decided in 1763
We like our tea sweet but they went to far, Sugar Act to pay French Indian war
Boston Massacre they attacked us, killing escaped slave Crispus Attucks
Answering back to your tyranny, rolling with the boys the Sons of Liberty
Come to our protest and don’t be tardy, dressing like an Indian, the Boston Tea Party
Let’s get together, protest in the hoods, refusing to purchase any British goods
Intolerable and wrong, it’s just not right, to Quarter British soldiers day and night
We don’t like your Stamps upon our papers, excluded by Parliament policy-makers
Townshend Act from across the sea, taxed Paper, glass, paint and tea,
First Continental Congress we decide, all trade with Britain will subside
News from colony to colony, writing letters of truth Correspondence Committee
Open up your mind and activate your brain, use your Common Sense like Thomas Paine
Dawes and Revere, Dawes and Revere, redcoats are coming so go get your gear
Independence we’re about to declare, British bullies better back off and beware

Chorus
Getting burned, getting taxed, tell Parliament to get up off our backs
Tired of all the intolerable Acts, Redcoats pushing us to the max

Verse 2
Dear King George of Great Brittan, got a little something Thomas Jefferson has written
Our Independence we declare, listing grievances of your actions so unfair
Your tyranny we do not miss, looking toward Life, Liberty, and pursuit of Happiness
Your search warrants called writs of assistance, increases defiance and our persistence
Sons of Liberty want something greater, self-governing without the King George hater
Showing true patriotic liberty, dumping tons of crates of tea in the sea
Taxation without representation tyranny, join up with us and become revolutionary
An official end to the Revolutionary war, signing Treaty of Paris to settle the score
Got 99 problems but pollution ain’t one, life was hard for the TN settling sons
Vote for TN to become a state, said the residents who needed government to relate
First and only governor John Sevier, for the state of Franklin he did steer
2nd Treaty of Paris establishing boarders, for the United States and territory sorters
Fighting for NC forces in the war, William Blount a hero opening the door
The first senator of Tennessee, appointed governor South of Ohio River territory

Chorus
Getting burned, getting taxed, tell Parliament to get up off our backs
Tired of all the intolerable Acts, Redcoats pushing us to the max

Verse 3
Now that it is the end of the war, the state of Franklin was in store
It’s time for warriors to change their song, America the brave they sang along
To build a new life, precious and fine, endless possibilities yours and mine
Settlers needed some organization, this the government could do for the nation
Our main man Benjamin Franklin, presented the choice to the people who’re bankin’
For something new something beautiful, rise up and fly the American soul
Something happened in the battle of Bunker-Hill, Americans believed they had the will
To finish strong what they started, to win the war and be forever parted
Nancy Ward the “beloved woman,” warning colonists attacking Indians are coming
To the AMs now we’re on the way, Daniel Boone to lead us to Kentucky
Settlers went west to find a new life, one without oppression and the strife
Of some one telling us what can’t and can, Americans will stand up against the man
Now strong with respect we demand, heads held high as we claim the land

Chorus
Getting burned, getting taxed, tell Parliament to get up off our backs
Tired of all the intolerable Acts, Redcoats pushing us to the max
