South Park - Bigger, Longer & Uncut-24 26850
"La Resistance"
Album: South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut Soundtrack
Written by: Trey Parker and Marc Shaiman
Performed by: Gregory, The Boys, and Other Children
Episode: South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

"La Resistance" is a song in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.

Background

The children sing this song when they start the resistance movement of the same name opposing Mothers Against Canada, the organization advocating the execution of Terrance and Phillip.

The song began a medley, including reprises of "Blame Canada", "Up There", "Uncle Fucka", and even a verse to the tune of "Mountain Town". It is widely considered one of the most popular songs of the series, due to its inspiring and stirring lyrics.

The song was reprized in "The Mole's Reprise". The motto is "Vive La Resistance!".

Trivia

  • The song's Les Misérables counterpart can be considered "One Day More" (a combination of previous themes up to that point) or as "Do You Hear The People Sing?" (a rousing song about the power of the people). The song can be said to best encapsulate the original musical's themes of popular resistance and personal vendetta.
  • The song foreshadows Butters' future as a main character: he is holding the flag at the end and then trips, his groan sounding similar to his voice in later episodes.
  • When Gregory says "They may cut your dick in half", Boy with Blue Cap is dancing with the group. But when Gregory says "...and serve it to a pig", he is replaced by Craig Tucker.

Lyrics

Gregory:
God has smiled upon you this day
The fate of a nation in your hands
And blessed be the children we,
who fight with all our bravery
'til only the righteous stand.
You see the distant flames, they bellow in the night.
You fight in all our names for what we know is right.
And when you all get shot and cannot carry on
Though you die, La Resistance lives on.

Gregory and the other Children:
You may get stabbed in the head with a dagger or sword.
You may be burned to death or skinned alive or worse.
But when they torture you, you will not feel the need to run
For though you die, La Resistance lives on.

MAC:
Blame Canada! Blame Canada!
Sheila:
Because the country's gone awry, tomorrow night these freaks will fry!
Soldiers:
Tomorrow night, our lives will change. Tomorrow night, we'll be entertained. An execution, what a sight. Tomorrow night.
Satan:
Up there, there is so much room, where babies burp and flowers bloom.
Tomorrow night, up there is doomed and so I will be going soon!

Terrance and Phillip:
Shut your fucking face, uncle fucka! You're a boner biting bastard, uncle fucka!
Terrance:
Looks like we may be out of luck!
Phillip:
Tomorrow night we're pretty fucked!
Stan and Kyle:
Why did our mothers start this war? What the fuck are they fighting for? When did this song become a marathon?
Satan:
I want to be up there...
Sheila:
When Canada is dead and gone, there'll be no more Celine Dion!
Gregory:
They may cut your dick in half.
Soldiers:
Tomorrow night.
Gregory:
And serve it to a pig.
Soldiers:
Our lives will change.
Gregory:
And though it hurts, you'll laugh.
Soldiers:
Tomorrow night.
Gregory:
And you'll dance a dickless jig.
Soldiers:
We'll be entertained.
Gregory:
But that's the way it goes.
Soldiers:
An execution!
Gregory:
In war, you're shat upon! Though you die..
Satan:
I want to be... up thereeeee...
Gregory:
...La Resistance...
Stan, Kyle, Cartman: Tomorrow we fight, for La Resistaaance!
Gregory:
...Lives on!!
Soldiers:
Our lives will change! We'll be entertained! Tomorrow night!
MAC:
Just don't cry out, "Blame yourselves!" Blame Canada! Blame Canada! Blame Canada!
