You know what's inherently lame? Country music battle songs. In aggressive country music battles, the only gauge for how "bad" someone is is how angrily they can say "America" or "U.S.A." while still maintaining a legitimate twang. Nevertheless, disgraced "Are You Ready For Some Football?" singer Hank Williams Jr. has gone and re-released a song called "Keep The Change," in which he attempts to come back at ESPN for firing him and at Fox & Friends for playing "gotcha" journalism.

Williams's original claim, if you need the rehash, was "that President Barack Obama and House Speaker Rep. John Boehner golfing together was like Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu playing a round." He told the AP that he wrote added the relevant verse to "Keep The Change" after waking up on Friday, the day after ESPN had let him go. And because circuses like this generally have at least two weeks of air time, Williams is scheduled to go on The View and Hannity this week.

Here are the lyrics to Hanks Jr.'s "Ether":

I'll keep my freedom
I'll keep my guns
Try to keep my money
And my religion too
Try to keep on workin'
Try to keep on smilin'
I will keep my Christian name and y'all can keep the change

I'll keep my heroes
Pictures on the wall
I'll keep my family safe
You're [something] when I call
I'm gonna keep my big V8
Keep my friends the same
Keep the government outta my business
And y'all can keep the change

This country sure as hell been goin' down the drain
We know what we need
We know who to blame
United Socialist States Of America
How do you like that name?

I'll keep the U.S.A. and y'all can keep the change

So Fox & Friends
Wanna put me down
Ask for my opinion
Then twist it all around
Supposed to be talkin' about my father's new CD
Well, two can play that gotcha game, just wait and see
Don't tread on me!

This country sure as hell been goin' down the drain
We know what we need
We know who to blame
United Socialist States Of America
Don't you just love that name?

I'll keep the U.S.A. and y'all can keep the change
I'll keep the U.S.A. and y'all can keep the change

Yeah, you can keep Fox & Friends and ESPN outta yer homes, too! 'Cause Bocephus and all his rowdy friends—and his song—is out of there!

UPDATE: We've been duped! To clarify, thanks to Greg Cote at the Miami Herald, Williams merely added a verse to a song already in his oeuvre. He originally recorded the song after President Obama was elected to office.
