The Lyrics

He can’t abide
Happenings in the bed
That ain’t between a man and wife—
That’s what the Pope said.
Don’t give a damn about children
When they’re born, ’cause he’s “pro-life,”
Which means life begins at
Conception and ends when baby arrives.

“Freedom,” that’s what Ricky
Wants us to have now.
Freedom, as long as you vow,
Kneeling, to live
Beneath his directive.

Nomini Pat. . .
Bathe in holy water;
Do what you’re told. . .
“Freedom” expounded
In the book all women men
Must read; most others banned.
All better heed it now. . .
True religious freedom isn't for the Grand [Inquisitor].

“Freedom,” long as you live
Beneath, yeah,
Ricky’s theocracy.

“If you say it is god’s law that must be,
You better mean it!
You’d better believe.
Has to trump democracy.
If you think that’s draconian, go somewhere else!
If you cleave*
Here, you’re free, yeah.
Just do as god’s said!
Better get straight your head!!”

Theocratic Ricky,
Theofascist is the
Freedom antipodes.**

*Be faithful
**Diametric opposite
