Maccabees, to tune of X Ambassadors’ “Renegades” (draft)

Way back in BCE
Brave souls, the Maccabees 
Fighting hard against tyranny
Freedom’s incendiary*                        *4 syllable pronunciation “inSENjary”
And I say
Ney, ney-ay-ays
bizman hazeh bayamim ha hem
Ney, ney-ay-ays
bizman hazeh bayamim ha hem
demonstrate, against hate
Long live the maccabees
Rebels against tyranny
Shine forth and make it clear
False night will disappear
And I say
Ney, ney-ay-ays
bizman hazeh bayamim ha hem
Ney, ney-ay-ays
bizman hazeh bayamim ha hem
Demonstrate, against hate
(musical interlude)
All help the underserved
All help the misfits
Come fight injustice
Worldwide or within us
It’s our time to light the light
It’s our time to defy trends
It’s our time for miracles
Let’s begin
And I say
Ney, ney-ay-ays
bizman hazeh bayamim ha hem
Ney, ney-ay-ays
bizman hazeh bayamim ha hem
Demonstrate, against hate
