Thank you, Sir, for the relevant prompt. I like a prompt that pushes my buttons.

I Don’t Have To Like It
You can say anything you want
I don’t have to like it
I can cuss and fuss and disagree
Demonstrate your hate and flaunt it
I don’t get to strike it
That’s the way it goes ’cause here you’re free.
Don’t matter none how foul you may be stinkin’
Drinkin’ from the poison in your cup
If somebody isn’t down with how you’re thinkin’
Doesn’t mean they get to shut you up
The moment we let your rights be suspended
Our precious way of life is dead and gone
In all the ways the Constitution has been amended
It doesn’t protect the right to never be offended
Your words make me so angry, I have to pitch a fit
So I will wave a sign and raise my voice
If we get face to face it would be easy just to hitcha
The only way to make it right is to never make that choice.
I can say anything I want
You don’t have to like it
You can fuss and cuss and disagree
Demonstrate my love it’s daunting
You don’t get to strike it
That’s the way it goes ’cause here we’re free.
Here we’re free
