      Mary Chapin Carpenter - On with the Song Música y Letra

      This isn't for the ones who blindly follow
      Jingoistic bumper stickers telling you
      To love it or leave it, and you'd better love Jesus
      And get out of the way of the red, white and blue
      
      This isn't for the ones who buy their six packs
      At the 7-Eleven where the clerk makes change
      Whose accent makes clear he sure ain't from here
      They call him a camel jockey instead of his name
      
      No this is for the ones who stand their ground
      When the lines in the sand get deeper
      When the whole world seems to be upside down
      And the shots being taken get cheaper ,cheaper 
      
      This isn't for the ones who would gladly swallow
      Everything their leader would have them know
      Bowing and kissing, while the truth goes missing
      Bring it on he crows, putting on his big show
      
      This isn't for the man who can't count the bodies
      Can't comfort the families, can't say when he's wrong
      Claiming I'm the decider, like some sort of messiah
      While another day passes and a hundred souls gone
      
      No this is for the ones who stand their ground
      When the lines in the sand get deeper
      When the whole world seems to be upside down
      And the shots being taken get cheaper ,cheaper 
      
      
      This is for the ones that I see above me
      Three little stars in a great big sky
      Light for the world and hope for the weary
      They try
      
      This isn't for the ones with their radio signal
      Calling for bonfires and boycotts they rave
      Exhorting their listeners to spit on the sinners
      While counting the bucks of advertising they'll save
      
      This isn't for you and you know who you are
      So do what you want 'cuz I know that you can
      But I've got to be true to myself and to you
      So on with the song, I don't give a damn
