"Some Country That I Used To Own"
(Feat. Gen. Washington)

[King George III:]
Now and then I think of you in the Empire
Like when you said that you were happy by the Crown
Told myself you were my colony
But Parliament lacked your company
But that was politics and debate I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of power
Like corruption absolute, always complete
So when we found you'd gathered Minutemen
Then Ben Franklin recruited the French
But I'll admit that I was glad that it was war

But you didn't have to piss me off
Write your Declaration and then call yourselves independent
And I don't even need your land
But you treat me like the enemy and it feels so bad
No you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends dump all my tea into the Boston Harbor
I guess that I don't need Redcoats
Now you're just some country that I used to own

Now you're just some country that I used to own
Now you're just some country that I used to own

[George Washington]
Now and then I think of all the times you taxed us over
Had us paying more thanks to the Stamp and Intolerable Acts
But we don't want to live that way
Slaves obedient to every word you say
You sent your army boat by boat
And we just wanted to be some country that you used to own

[King George III:]
But you didn't have to piss me off
Write your Declaration and then call yourselves independent
And I don't even need your land
But you treat me like the enemy and that feels so bad
No you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends dump my tea into the Boston Harbor
I guess that I don't need Redcoats
Now you're just some country that I used to own

Some country
(I used to own)
Some country
(Now you're just some country that I used to own)

(I used to own)
(That I used to own)
(I used to own)
Some country
A parody of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" ( [link] ) (WARNING: It will get stuck in your head!)

Obviously, it's about the American Revolution. No, I haven't played AC3 yet.

This line is slightly a bit too long to fit into one phrase. But other than that, awesome parody :D.

I guess you could say the same about the original line that goes there:

-Have your friends collect your records and then change your number

Because I do argue the line still fits.

Glad you liked though. :D
