Uh-Merica

Recommended Posts

I was reading the Political Orientation of Artists thread and started wondering how this song might fit into Reg's views.

I would give my opinion except I tend to be waaay to literal in my interpretations.

Any ideas?

Mrs. E. Roosevelt never heard me shoot my gun

Mrs. E. Roosevelt didn't even know I owned one

Somewhere between the cobblestone floor and the slated wooden ceiling

Cuddling my semi-automatic, what a very fuzzy feeling

Oh, there's nothing like emptying the cartridge at the sun

Uh-merica

Uh-merica

Oh, there's nothing like emptying the cartridge at the sun.

Oh we're born alone and we're covered by m-m-m-mother's kisses

The mind has already forgotten what the body still misses

Somewhere between the sticky floor and the cracks in the ceiling

Cuddling my semi automatic, what a very fuzzy feeling

Oh, there's nothing like emptying the cartridge at the sun

Uh-merica

Uh-merica

Oh, there's nothing like emptying the cartridge at the sun

This is probably way too literal, but could this be a statement on people who take the second amendment (right to bear arms) to heart? Like how one could get so caught up in their 'rights' that they ignore reason? Eleanor Roosevelt, a major advocate for human rights, probably wouldn't have expected the proliferation of gun ownership, and the heated debate over it, that exists in our country today, even though she chaired a national committee on civil defense during WWII.

I don't have much more to add about the meaning of the song, but these lines:

quote:
Oh we're born alone and we're covered by m-m-m-mother's kisses

The mind has already forgotten what the body still misses

would have to be among the best that Reg has ever written.
