Why Fire Lane?

It’s all across the states, a great campaign
It seems someone would like to see her fall.
What crime would lead to such a widespread call
To terminate employment for our Lane?
      I cannot think of who could stand to gain
      Or who would think such prejudice is right
      Stand up you cur it’s really impolite
      To terminate employment for our Lane?
Hostility like this will cause me pain
An Englishman demands that all play fair
And I cannot believe these folk would dare
To terminate employment for our Lane?
      It’s all across the states, a great campaign
      To terminate employment for our Lane?
