Ballad of Edward Snowden
(parody of “Desperado”)

Lyrics and Singing by Joe J Thomas
(with apologies to “The Eagles”)

Edward Snowden, why don’t you come to your senses?
The US Defenses will track you down
Oh you’re a cool one, but they are callin’ it treason
In Russia it’s freezin’, and you know that by now

Don’t you tell them all your secrets, boy – the NSA will hear you
You know the CIA has GITMO all prepared
Now it seems to me your intel, well it’s gettin’ pretty feeble
But you only want the fame that you can’t get

Edward Snowden, oh you ain’t bringin’ us under
It’s really a wonder you’ve lasted this long
And freedom, oh freedom. Well that’s the one thing you long for
The guys from the cold war are watching you now

Well, your only friends are WikiLeaks
They act like rebels but they look like geeks
It’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad
From Germany to Mexico
Those phone taps that we didn’t know they had

Edward Snowden, why don’t you drop the pretenses?
You’re stuck behind fences, with guards at the gate
You may be hidin’, but there’s a drone right above you
You better write a book about you
You better write a book about you
Before it’s too… late.

~~~ (fin) ~~~
