Rick Perry Ambles Into 2016 With His Own Rap Song

As you might expect, the lyrics are 100 percent Texas.
Views:

Rick Perry rolled onto the 2016 stage with a modified version of Colt Ford's "Answer to No One." The lyrics are predictably feisty. Maybe they were written for him by a committee comprised of the NRA, oil billionaires, and Americans for Prosperity?

Via Buzzfeed:

“Rick Perry supporter, let’s protect our border,” the rap part says. “To hell with anyone who don’t believe in the USA / Rick Perry all the way.”

“I won’t back up / I don’t back down / I been raised up / To stand my ground / Take my job / But not my gun,” the country part says.

“Give me my right to vote / My right to tote / The weapon of my choice, don’t censor my voice,” goes the second rap verse.

If I were writing his campaign song for 2016, it would have a one-word chorus: "Oops."

All it needs is a catchy tune!
