NSA Carols Sung by the WAMM Singers (Women Against Military Madness)

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/84171043] THE NSA IS COMING TO TOWN
TUNE: Santa Claus is Coming to Town
You better watch out,
You better not Skype,
You better log out,
Yeah you better not type,
The NSA is coming to town.
They’re making a list,
They’re checking it twice;
They’re watching every electronic device,
The NSA is coming to town.
They see you when you’re sleeping
They hear while you’re awake
They know who you call and who you write
So encrypt for goodness’ sake!
With Congress in the dark and a cloak-and-dagger court
We’re lookin’ for answers, they’re comin’ up short
The NSA is coming to town.
They’re making a list,
Checking it twice;
They’re watching every electronic device,
The NSA is coming
The NSA is coming,
The NSA is coming to town.

NSA:  “DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE?”
TUNE:  Do You Hear What I Hear?
Said the policeman to the little boy
Do you see what I see?
Way up in the sky little boy
Do you see what I see?
A bright satellite
Crossing in the night?
With an eye as big as the sky
A Geospatial Intelligence eye
Said the official to the journalist
Do you hear what I hear?
Traveling through the lines journalist
Do you hear what I hear?
Everyone is talking
Everyone is typing
With a voice they can hear sea to sea
At the National Security Agency
Said the snooping spy to the rest of us
Do you know what I know?
In your private places everyone
Do you know what I know?
A secret, a secret
That could not be told
Will now bring us silver and gold
Will now bring us powers untold
Said the President to the people everywhere
Listen to what I say!
No more whistleblowers anywhere
Listen to what I say!
The security state is watching over you
Sleeping in the night
It won’t bring you goodness and light
It won’t let you out of its sight
DOES THE NSA KNOW?
(TUNE: Do Your Ears Hang Low?)
Does the NSA know
When you’re talking on the phone?
When you shopping what you buy?
When you get a little high?
When you’re surfing on the web?
When you’re having fun in bed?
Does the NSA know?
