Neil Young: Exclusive 'Impeach the President' Lyrics
Fox News ^ | 4/26/2006 | Roger Friedman

Posted on 04/26/2006 6:08:30 PM PDT by Uncledave

Neil Young’s new album, Living with War, is an incendiary, moving, totally American document of peaceful protest that is going to make a lot of people crazy one way or another.

And there’s no doubt that the centerpiece of the album, a song called “Let’s Impeach The President,” performed as a melodic, rocking, campfire ode will be what causes the most controversy.

{snip}

Here, for the first time, the lyrics to Neil Young’s “Let’s Impeach the President”:

Let’s impeach the president for lying
And leading our country into war
Abusing all the power that we gave him
And shipping all our money out the door

He’s the man who hired all the criminals
The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors
And bend the facts to fit with their new stories
Of why we have to send our men to war

It's more likely to do what nearly every one of his albums since Rust Never Sleeps (1978) has done -- yawn.

He probably wrote this to get a gig on the Chris Matthews Hardball show.

Neil Neil Neil, what happened? (Flight 93)

NEIL YOUNG LYRICS

"Let's Roll"

I know I said I love you,
I know you know it's true,
I've got to put the phone down,
and do what we got to do.

One's standing in the iselway,
Two more at the door,
We've got to get inside there,
Before they kill somemore.

Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.
Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.

No time for indecision,
We've got to make a move,
I hope that were foregiven,
For what we got to

How this all got started,
I'll never understand,
I hope someone can fly this thing,
And get us back to land.

Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.
Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.

No one has the answer,
But one thing is true,
You've got to turn on evil,
When it's coming after you,
You've gota face it down,
And when it tries to hide,
You've gota go in after it,
And never be denied,
Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.

Let's roll for freedome,
Let's roll for love,
We're going after satan,
On the wings of a dove,
Let's roll for justice,
Let's roll for truth,
Let's not let our children,
Grow up fearfull in there youth.

Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.
Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.
Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.

The most overrated musician ever. Our cover band plays his song "Down By the River" and our version is a LOT better.



His best work was with Crosby, Stills and Nash.

It looks like Neil just copy and pasted a thread from DU, and made them his lyrics.

The sad thing is mis-informed people will take his new song as gospel.

This is too bad. I spent most of my teenage years drunk and listening to/playing Neil Young songs. Even Greendale is fantastic despite its leftist agenda. this however is absurd.

One of the finest.

I wonder if he'd record a retraction song if we ever found the WMD that were moved out of Iraq (to Syria, most likely) while we were messing around for months with the UN? I'd hope so. ....but doubt it.

A Southern man don't need him around, anyhow"

Neil sucks. He used to rock until his communist politics overshadowed his music. I still have a Crazy Horse tape. Maybe I should burn it on May Day.

Neil Neil Neil, what happened? (Flight 93) "Let's Roll"

Good question. And this is beyond preposterous:

What if Al Qaeda blew up the levees
Would New Orleans have been safer that way
Sheltered by our government’s protection
Or was someone just not home that day?
How can he blame the President or FEMA for the
malfeasance of Louisiana's Governor and New Orleans' Mayor?

Did he not see the mayor had buses lined up row by row,
drowning, because he refused to say "Let's Roll"?

Does he forget the Governor had the Guard at their barracks,
waiting, because she refused to tell them "Let's Roll"?

The Bellamy Brothers once wrote a song about (my take on it) this falsetto whiner who writes embarrasingly inept lyrics:

He's an old hippie and he don't know what to do
Should he hang on to the old 
Should he grab on to the new 
He's an old hippie...his new life is just a bust 
He ain't trying to change nobody 
He's just trying real hard to adjust

I actually think that his friends in the music business wouldn't have anything to do with him after he wrote that "right wing" song, "Let's Roll".


The only way he could EARN his way back into the good graces of the liberals and the Geffin crowd was to put out this "Impeach The President" song and get his chit back into the music scene.

IMO

Is he still a canadian citizen?

I saw him a few times in the early 70's. A very talented musician at the time. I, on the other hand, though bereft of musical talent, still have my brain and cognitive reasoning ability. Which puts me way ahead of old Neil.

Does anyone listen to Neil Young's music? His voice makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Chris Kristopherson is a better singer and his voice makes dogs fight.

OK, Neil, here is a take for you:

Four Planes Coming

W/o apology to Neil Young (Four dead in Ohio)

Four planes with ragheads coming
They've finally met their call
That morning we heard them coming
Thousands died in the fall

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers can save us all
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And all that she had done
How can they claim, they did not know?

Osama and Saddam were coming
Salmon Pak was their home
In Sudan they heard the drumming,
but no one picked up the phone.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers can save us all
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And all that she had done
How can they claim, they did not know?
