You Gotta Fight for your Right to Carry

Apologies to the Beastie Boys… but only minor apologies, as I know they probably won’t agree with the sentiment of these lyrics. I churned this out in about 20 minutes, and parts of it are still a little clunky, so I’m open to suggestions. Really the song could use as many verses or couplets as we can come up with, so feel free to contribute. I only made 3 verses because that’s all the original song has. I also referred to the original lyrics (in structure and actual wording) as much as possible, which ended up being almost every line. So if there’s some things that seem a bit out of left field, and you’re not familiar with the original song, look up the lyrics.

You got a basic right to self-defense
You ask the gov’ment “please?” but they just act dense!
You got a clean record, passed the training class
But the jerks preach that power don’t belong to the mass

You gotta fight
For your right
To caaaaaaaaarry

Mayor Daley says your gun can’t leave your yard
That hypocrite has five bodyguards!
Man, leavin’ guns at home is such a drag
My defense comes in a fifteen-round mag

You gotta fight
For your right
To caaaaaaaaarry

Don’t step outta that house if ya wanna self-protect
Trust police to take care of any kinda threat
Gun grabbers busted in and said “We’re gonna take ’em”
Helmke’s just jealous of our basic freedom

You gotta fight
For your right
To caaaaaaaaarry
