The Last Great American
Five for Fighting Lyrics


Mr. Merry cries in his coffin
For days he says he can remember
And through the town the pallbearers sing old songs
Of a beautiful purple mountain
From every walk of life we've come to see the last great American

May I now present you the speaker,
"Friends he was a man of men, a man of gold:
He had a how do you say, ethical like sense"
That's when the President started to giggle
And the children gave the blessing
Though the service weren't half done
Each of them sued the other one
For the last great American

Merry reaches up, we bow our heads
He pulls the lid on down and his stone is read

Here lies our Merry

The man with the heart so spent

That in this day and age

Is sick of living

And judges argue letters
Fabric comes undone
For every daughter every son
Of the last great American

For every daughter every son
Of the last great American

The Last Great American
Five For Fighting

One

One

Mr. Merry cries in his coffin oh
For days he says he can remember
And through the town the pallbearers sing old songs
Of a beautiful purple mountian
From every walk of life we've come
To see the last great American

So may I now present you the Speaker
Friends
He was a man of men
A man of gold
He had a (how to you say) ethical like sense
That's when the President started to giggle

And the children gave the blessing
Though the service weren't half done
Each of them sued the other one
For the last great American ou ou ou ouu
American
American da da daa

Merry reaches up
We bow our heads
He pulls the lid on down
His stone is read

Here lies old Merry
The man with the heart so spent
That in this day in age
Is sick of living

And judges argue letters
And fabric comes undone
For every daughter every son
Of the last great American

For every daughter every son
Of the last great American

Great song my favorite by Five for Fighting

Lix *

This song was written for John McCain.

Lix *

@Kobayashi nope. John Ondradik himself said in a tweet he wrote this song for him. https://twitter.com/johnondrasik/status/1033572136550424577?s=19

Kobayashi

Belltrixe _ it was released in 1997. Not written for McCain. Not written for any person in general but for an ideal that we’ve all laid to rest.
