The Lyrics

There’s no whisperin’ when they scream;
decibels will get your ears clean.
Gripes and banes and swingin’ hands. . .
he’s their “daddy”; he’s their man.

One crank wants to slay
guy that he just gave a punch.
Others go the way
of the push/Putsch, beyond the crunch.

Goon-stooge riot.
That hasn’t quite yet been here.
Goon-stooge riot
is what he hints might be the fare.

Goon-stooge riot:
that’s what he says we might fear.
Goon-stooge riot
if convention don’t treat him “fair.”
“Go slap ’em!”

Those whipped-up, liberal-hatin’ redneck men
want to make America “great again.”
Coded language for a time back when
George Wallace would have been friend.

He’s got ’em in a sway
from that podium above.
When he talks they know
that he means more than a shove.

Goon-stooge riot:
that’s what he says we might fear.
Goon-stooge riot
seems what he wants, based on his blare.

There’ll be a goon-stooge riot. . . .

[Loud, angry, incoherent screaming]

Oh, he’s got ’em in a sway
’cause he tells them that he loves
it when they give blows
to foes: “Do more than just shove!!”

Goon-stooge riot:
that’s what he says we might fear.
Goon-stooge riot
seems what he wants, in the lights’ glare.

Goon-stooge riot:
that’s what he says we might fear.
Goon-stooge riot
this is a threat; his meaning bare.

Expect a goon-stooge riot. . . .

(With that mouth, he may well bring it.)
