When I was a little kid still in grade school, we used to sing this irreverent song set to "My Country 'Tis of Thee":

"My country isn't the sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing,
My country hates me, I'm going to Germany to see the queen.

Her name is Donald Duck, she drives a garbage truck,
From ev-er-y mountainside, let her dump the trash!"

Is anyone else familiar with it? Does anyone know where it originated? Some book perhaps? Some person?

I didn't mean any disrespect, I was just wondering :).

Haven't heard that one, but I love songs like this. I think you'd enjoy a trip to our Naughty Kids' Greatest Hits thread (click here).

There's a version of this in A Prairie Home Companion Folk Song Book which gets a mention in that thread - it's full of stuff like that. (I'm sure Joe's got a copy - if not rush out and get one.)

My country's tired of me
I come from Germany
My name is Fritz.
I love my sauerkraut
It makes my ears stick out
From every mountain top
Let sauerkraut sprout.

My country's tired of me,
I went to Germany
To see the King
His name was Donald Duck
He drove a garbage truck
Here's wishing the best of luck
In Donald's reign.

We sang a version of that, New York City, circa 1960:

My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of Germany.
My name is Fritz.
I am a German spy
Caught by the FBI.
Tomorrow I will die.
Oh, fiddlesticks!
