Uncle Sam's Ode to the UK, with apologies to Hank Williams Jr

Colonizers and empires have been a real close family,
But lately some of my kinfolks have disowned a few others and me.
I guess it’s because I kind of changed my direction.
Lord I guess I went and broke their family tradition.

They get on me and want to know Uncle Sam why do you kill? Why do you start wars?
Why must you live out the films sold in your convenience stores?
Over and over everybody makes my predictions.
So if I drop bombs, I’m just carrying on an old family tradition.

I am very proud of Brittania’s fame
All though that kind of empire and mine ain’t exactly the same.
Stop and think it over. Put yourself in my position.
If I send missiles through the sky all night long it’s a family tradition.

So don’t ask me, Uncle Sam why do you kill? Sam, why do you start wars?
Why must you live out the films sold in your convenience stores?
If I’m in an oil dictatorship some ole puppet’s trying to give me friction.
I said leave me alone I’m killing all night long it’s a family tradition.

Lord I have loved some bombings and I have loved occupations
And Congress tried to stop me in 1973.
When that doctor asked me, Sam how did you get in this condition?
I said, Ike was right, I’m just carrying on an ole family tradition.

So don’t ask me, Uncle Sam why do you kill? Sam, why do you start wars?
Why must you live out the films sold in your convenience stores?
Stop and think it over, try and put yourself in my uniquely indispensible position.
If I send missiles through the sky all night long, it’s a family tradition!
