#JeSuisCharlie #DonMcLean #AmericanPieReboot

A long, long time ago
I can still remember how satire would make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
They’d laugh at my jokes with just one glance
And maybe they'd be happy for a while

But today’s murders made me shiver
With news media continues to deliver
Terrorism on the doorstep
How do we take one more step?

I can remember that I cried
When I read about all those who died
And something touched me deep inside
Because free speech can never die.

So bye-bye, to the fear inside
Keep on writing and drawing ‘til your pen is dry
And them terrorist boys will rue the day they tried
To kill free speech by taking lives
To kill free speech by taking lives
