I like sports, so there are some things I force myself to miss
Like I never met an athlete I like, and hockey in Texas
But when it comes to Native American nicknamed teams
Even within the context of sports it's awful and mean

And you'll go "wah wah wah, you're so PC"
And I will say "wait"
My my my, how have the tables turned so that being a fucking prick is a desirable trait?

While we're on the subject of changing team names
There's no jazz in Utah and few lakes in LA
Just this once, give me the benefit of the doubt
The Bullets became the Wizards, too violent? Get out!

And you'll go "wah wah wah, you're so PC"
And I will say "wait"
Remind me again how it came to be that being 'the stupid American' became a desirable trait

Wouldn't it be offensive if we cheered "rah rah rah" for the Carolina Negroes
With our beat box cheer in our fake foam afros?
Or if the Minnesota Vikes became the New York Kikes
With dollar bills on their helmets cause that's what they like, you know?

"Atom, what about the Saints, Angels, Padres too?
Ain't that the same thing for Christians that's offending you?"

When there's a Jesus Christ Mascot hot dog shooting crucifix thing
Nailed to a cross, dying to save the team
You'll be right, you'll be right
But until then
You're not right

So what's your take on the Washington Redskins, what's your take on the Cleveland Indians?
What's your take on the Washington Redskins, what's your take on the Cleveland Indians?

    My InterpretationI haven't heard this song yet, but the lyrics are really great.

    Pretty sure it's about how racist the name the "Redskins" is. Because, you know, people would throw a fit if there was a team called the Negroes or anything like that, but they don't say anything when it's racist towards Native Americans.
