lyrics

Freedom of speech—good answer
Freedom to do what’s right—good answer
Freedom to move it all around—good answer
Good answer, good answer, good answer, good answer
I’m willing to compromise
I’m willing to do what’s right
I’ll go with the status quo
I’ll go with what you want to know
Good answer, good answer, good answer, good answer
The hem of Scalia’s robe—good answer
Some cheap men’s cologne—good answer
We’re going to get granular with this—good answer
Well liked by his peers—good answer
You in the back please lower your voice
Keep up with the rest of the boys
You’ve all been given a choice
You’ve all been given a choice
Good answer, good answer, good answer, good answer
Atom Bomb
James Bond
Freedom fries
Snorting bath salts
Manifest Destiny
Archduke Ferdinand
Edward Snowden
Pepperspray cop
I’m willing to compromise
I’m willing to do what’s right
I’ll go with the status quo
I’ll go with what you want to know
Good answer, good answer, good answer, good answer
