Rick Perry Has A Rap/Country Song About Rick Perry

This is almost as good as Ben Carson's "Lose Yourself" choir.

Former Texas Governor Rick Perry came to the stage to announce his presidential campaign on Thursday to the tune of an interesting song: a rap song that turned into a country song about Rick Perry.

"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 / Tax my check till I ain't got none / 'Cept for the good lord up above / I answer to no one," 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.

A spokesperson for Perry didn't immediately return a request for comment about the song.

The song appears to be a modified version of Colt Ford's "Answer to No One."
