Press Freedom

Would you like to keep our press free

To the truth we'd all have a key

Let reporters be all they can be

Or would you rather jail Assange

 

Assange is a journalist with very long ears

He spits out everything he hears

He shared the truth of Hillary’s sin

Now they want him jailed ’cause she didn’t win

And by the way, if you’ll go out on a limb

You might grow up to be like him.

 

Would you like to keep our press free

To the truth we’d all have a key

Let reporters be all they can be

Or would you lock up Chelsea?

 

Chelsea the soldier found wrongs she had to tell

Army telling doesn’t go very well

So she carried them off to wik i leaks

Then served her time and did not speak

So if you don’t want to lie and be a cur

You might grow up to be like her

 

Would you like to keep our press free

To the truth we’d all have a key

Let reporters be all they can be

Or would you rather try Ellsberg

 

Daniel read secrets ’bout Vietnam

What was there gave him quite a qualm

He was tried for sharing the Pentagon’s list

But all the charges against him were dismissed

If you think that’s the way you should behave

You might grow up to be that brave

 

Not all heroes the hard line they toe

Some think the people simply oughta know

If you think truth should always overflow

You might just learn to whistle blow
