The Lyrics

The recent Tea Parties' calls for accountability and transparency in the federal government echo those during the Vietnam war in the OS, although the demonstrators' concerns are very different.
Protester 1:
We marvel, look
At one another,
Short of wealth.
Talking proudly of November votes,
Weaving spells with oratories,
Faking a crying nation
With monetary fantasy.
Listen for the New Deal lies
And new dream visions that burst balloons.

Protester 2:
Somewhere
Inside our minds there is a rush of
Great stress;
Who knows what grand affront to
Our lives
He fashions, or future our children face.
Silence
Tells me secretly,
He aims to fling
Everything.

Medical Patient:
Needs-test health-care like England
Means less health-care like England --
Coin-toss when you gan sick be. *

Environmentalist:
And I want cleanest green, yes!
I believe in Gore,
And I believe in global-warming lore
From sea to creeping sea.

Megabankers:
Now we must face wrongs with a cry that is bitter;
Strife will surround you, so spin your
Answers to Timothy Geithner, frightener!

Protesters:
Twenty-oh-nine
Set The One shinin',
The One signin'.
Twenty-oh-nine
Let the new wine in
An old wineskin.
Twenty-oh-nine,
Get some sunshine in,
Some sunshine in.
