Ted Nugent and the National Rifle Association have teamed up to promote a lovely new number from the Motor City Madman titled “I AM THE NRA,”*
which is allegedly available at both Ted’s site (which opens with a shot of him sitting on a buffalo and the words “YOU CAN’T DO THIS IN FRANCE!”) and the NRA’s, though I’m only finding a link on the former. The lyrics? “When I think of freedom, I got my Bill Of Rights. US Constitution is my guiding light. Our founding fathers, they were not confused. I always celebrate self-evident truths. I AM THE NRA. I AM THE NRA. I am ‘we the people.’ I don’t need no OK. My pursuit of happiness will take me all the way. If you hate slavery as much as we all do, come on join the fight, I’ll tell you what we do. I AM THE NRA. I AM THE NRA. If you hate tyrants and dictators, and are ready to give freedom a whirl. Celebrate the NRA and the shot heard round the world. The shot heard round the world.” Ralph Waldo Emerson would be proud.
TED debuted the freedom-loving song at the recent annual NRA Convention May 17-18 in Louisville, Kentucky–which he described as “the ultimate Ted Nugent party,” with “more than 67,000 of my closest friends.”
…Says TED, recently re-elected for his fifth term on the Board of Directors of the NRA: “We debuted the ultimate soundtrack for freedom lovers everywhere with my new song ‘I AM THE NRA’ to thunderous applause and spontaneous dancing in the aisles. Real honest to God Motor City rock-n-roll goes perfectly with the spirit of gun lovers everywhere.”
See for yourself!
Wild, wild, wild! Is it really spontaneous if you have to yell “sing the damn song!” at the audience?
