This is probably one of the dumbest jingles I’ve done, especially given the serious subject matter of the original song. But the song immediately popped into my head when Tony mentioned on OGR early this week that he can’t stand it when we call everything “Nation”- like Sox Nation and Pats Nation etc. He didn’t go on and on but I get the feeling he would’ve if they weren’t out of time and I found it pretty funny. Oh, I am aware that this song is way, way out of my lane but I had to get it out of my head. Thanks to Jason for previewing this and for braving my rapping. #LittlesNation

Wait a second, I got something to say
So gimme the microphone & turn up the sound.
Haven’t told you yet so I thought I’d share
But wait, guess who’s great?
Bryce and all that hair!
Unaware, I just did what I always do.
Everyday the same routine. But Let’s get back to my stew.
The pot is full today
Where should I begin?
I’m annoyed once again,
Jumping out of my skin!
Call my grumpy, but what’s wrong with our nation, like Applewood Smoked Bacon? Please, you must be mistaken!
Don’t care
when it started, it’s time it departed
like use of the word “foodie”
gets your column discarded.
Hoped it was a fad but it’s here to stay
So Ima use this moment
to express my disdain
For this ridiculous & pretentious phrase
that ain’t going away
but I remember what I say!

Don’t Care, Don’t Care (Don’t care) ‘bout your stupid Nation
Please Spare, Please Spare (Please spare) me from your Nation
‘cept for, ‘cept (‘cept for) Frankie Nation
And I need a door (a door) from Window Nation

I love so much about this one... from the intro novella to the vocal inflection and great tone throughout the verse, to the Frankie Nation line, and on and on and on. I have certainly heard that song Anita, and can see that Brad has as well.

Wonderful KJ. And much better than my thought to do a jingle about this to Cherokee Nation. Which half of you probably never heard of.
