Sunday Song Lyrics

I have never brought up politics in my blogging world because people like to form opinions too early. Assume they know everything about me. Mainly people judge me. And God knows, I get judged enough.

But.

It pisses me off when a celebrity makes one comment about the president and the nation goes nuts. That celebrity happens to be a woman. Now. Correct me here. Do we not have men celebrities going around bashing our president all the time? What do they get? A pat on the back for their bravery. A fucking talk show. Let’s all sit around and smoke cigars.

Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks was publically crucified for making ONE statement. ONE. There were stories all over the news. People were making such a big deal when everyday, President Bush is verbally maimed by celebrities.

Yes, I know that people were upset because they felt she used her status as a political forum instead of her true talents. Well, guess the fuck what? George Clooney and Puff Daddy do the same God damn thing. All celebrities do it.

I’m not saying I’m agreeing or disagreeing with what she said. I’m just saying that I’m sick of all these pots calling the kettle black. And all of you people who stopped listening to their music because of it? You’re essentially doing the same thing you feel she did. You’re judging her in other arenas too. If you want to practice what you preach, judge her solely on her talent.

So I’m glad as hell that the Dixie Chicks released their new single. Read it and enjoy.

NOT READY TO MAKE NICE

Words & Music by Emily Robison, Martie Maguire, Natalie Maines, Dan Wilson

Forgive, sounds good

Forget, I’m not sure I could

They say time heals everything

But I’m still waiting

I’m through with doubt

There’s nothing left for me to figure out

I’ve paid a price

And I’ll keep paying

I’m not ready to make nice

I’m not ready to back down

I’m still mad as hell and

I don’t have time to go round and round and round

It’s too late to make it right

I probably wouldn’t if I could

‘Cause I’m mad as hell

Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I know you said

Can’t you just get over it

It turned my whole world around

And I kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby

With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’

It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her

Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger

And how in the world can the words that I said

Send somebody so over the edge

That they’d write me a letter

Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing

Or my life will be over

I’m not ready to make nice

I’m not ready to back down

I’m still mad as hell and

I don’t have time to go round and round and round

It’s too late to make it right

I probably wouldn’t if I could

‘Cause I’m mad as hell

Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I’m not ready to make nice

I’m not ready to back down

I’m still mad as hell and

I don’t have time to go round and round and round

It’s too late to make it right

I probably wouldn’t if I could

‘Cause I’m mad as hell

Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

Forgive, sounds good

Forget, I’m not sure I could

They say time heals everything

But I’m still waiting

    So Clooney is thinking about running for office? I know he’s pretty politically active, but with his party past I can’t see him going far.
