Jill Sobule wrote an original song for Netroots Nation 2011.

When they say “We want our America back,” what the fuck does that mean?”


Remember the Garden of Eden
Before Eve hung out with that snake?
You could walk down the street
And not worry about thieves
All the kids could go trick or treating

Then those foreigners started comin’ in
Like those Germans in 1790
Then the Irish arrived, the potato blight
The neighborhood started changing

Life was better
We lived right
Life had a paler shade of white
When they say we want our America back…
