THE LIB'RALS
"BLUE ALBUM"
SPECIAL EDITION


SIDE D

1. REVELATION 1
Based on "Revolution 1"
by John Lennon and Paul McCartney
New Lyrics by Daniel G

[This by the way, is a parody of the slow version of "Revolution." The opening chords are accompanied by the sounds of guns locking and loading overdubbed with church bells in the background ]

Yah say yah had a revelation
Oh well, we know
How yah wanna spread the word
Yah preach 'n' pray with such elation
Oh well, we know
That it's really too absurd
But when you burn the Constitution
Bet your ass I'm gonna have some doubt
Don'tchya know it's gonna be
A sight
Don'tchya know it's gonna be
A fright
Don'tchya know it's gonna be
A Reich

Yah tell me God is your solution
Oh well, we know
How yah hate the dykes and fags
Yah say you're fighting evolution
Oh well we know
The crazy right wing revolution
But when yah start tellin' me how to live my life
Brother yah better know I'm gonna cause yah strife
Don'tchya know it's gonna be
A sight
Don'tchya know it's gonna be
A fright
Don'tchya know it's gonna be
A Reich

The government yah claim is cruel
Oh well, we know
How yah wanna rule the world
Theocracy yah say should rule
Oh well, we know
That your plan may soon unfurl
But when you start tellin' me how to think and pray
All I can tell is is buddy yah better back away
Don'tchya know it's gonna be
A sight
Don'tchya know it's gonna be
A fright
Don'tchya know it's gonna be
A Reich

A Reich
A Reich
A Reich
A Reich
A REICH!

2. Sweetie Pie
Based on "Honey Pie"
By John Lennon and Paul McCartney
New lyrics by Daniel G

[Introduction: To sound like an old scratchy 45 rpm]
He was a leggy blond
From the USA
Then he had a sex change
On a secret day
And if she would only hear me
This I'd like to say

Sweetie Pie, you are getting so cranky
You don't eat, you're so lanky
Oh won't you please go home

Oh Sweetie Pie, you are losing the magic
I see you're getting too manic
Oh won't you please go home

You became a psycho in the pundit scene
And now the act of hearing you
Shows me more of your sleaze

Oh Sweetie Pie, yes your passion is burning
But our stomachs are churning
So won't you please go home

*Annie Pie get away from me
Yeah!
You like that
You like this, your kind of bitching
Same kind of bitching
Singing your tune
Play the maniacal blues

Will the quack who sewed her phallus
Wrong side out
Kindly do the same thing to her mouth

Oh Sweetie Pie, you are getting too lanky
And your comments are cranky
So won't you please go home

Sweetie Pie won' you please go home.

*A parody of the "hidden lyrics " which do not appear on the lyric sheet

3. Corporate Shuffle
Based on "Savoy Truffle"
By George Harrison
New lyrics and rearrangements by Kyle

Work hard all day, I did overtime too
The man said, "hey dude, there's more you can do!"
I gave it my all but it benefits who?
Yeah they tossed every one of us out

In the corporate shuffle

New C.E.O. made a billion point two
Feels our pain, but he says we're all through
We gave it our best, and what did they do?
Yeah they tossed every one of us out
In the corporate shuffle

We may not feel the pain right now
But when the checks run out
We're going to ask them how
The politicians bend and bow
But when it's too much
We're gonna yell out loud!

Work hard all day, but what good will it do?
The board got rich, but they couldn't be true
I did what I should, they won't give me my due
But they tossed every one of us out
In the Corporate shuffle!

The G.O.P. said "just work hard."
But what was true then turned so sour
They tell me, "use a credit card."
But can they show me where jobs are?

Work hard all day, benefit who?
China got jobs, but my options are few!
I did what I should, they won't give me my due!
But they tossed every one of is out
In the corporate shuffle!
Yeah they tossed every one of us out
In the corporate shuffle!
[End cold but go directly into... ]


4. Lie Georgie Lie
Based on "Cry Baby Cry"
By John Lennon and Paul McCartney
New lyrics by Brandon

Lie Georgie lie
Let the people die
You really should have done better
Why Georgie why?

The king prevaricated
In his dungeon, living in a faith-based world
The cabinet was praying
Doing nothing as the Gulf turned in a whirl

CHORUS:
Lie, Georgie, lie

Let the people die
You surely could have done better
Why Georgie why?

The King was in his office
Cutting taxes for the goons who gave him cash
The CEOs were laughing
Making profits when the waves began to crash

CHORUS

The crony, getting cocky,
Getting cranky, but the town just will not float
The King says, "great job Browny,"
As the rotting, stinking corpses rise and bloat

CHORUS

The king has lost his glory
And the people lose their patience with a fool
The city has been waiting
But the Bible-thumping moron has been cruel

Lie, Georgie, lie
Let the people die
You really should have done better
So lie Georgie lie, lie lie lie lie Georgie
Let the people die

You really should have done better
Lie, Georgie,, lie
Lie lie lie
Let the people die
You really should have done better
Oh,why, Georgie, why?

[End cold but as the last notes fade we hear...]

Can't you take him back where he came from
Barbie can you take him back?
Can't you take him back where he came from
Barbie can't you take him back?
Take him back
[Fading out and segueing into...]

5. Revelation Lie
Inspired by "Revolution 9"
By John Lennon and Paul McCartney
Interpretation by Group Effort
See source material at Revolution 9

[Open with a quiet piano playing over the following quiet dialogue]


Bag of marijuana for you if I had remembered
Well, ah, ah, next time

Guess it slipped my mind, George, so sorry.
Am I forgiven?
Yeah

Another lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie
'Nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, nother lie,
'Nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie...

Then there's the psychopath blowing some green frogs to bits
No shortage of firecrackers in Crawford
Everyone of us knew that as time slipped by he'd get a little bit meaner and a little bit slower

It never changes; in his case he's enabled by the many who always deny
His mommy telling him "Fiddle Dee Dee," Daddy ignoring
Promising to change. Don't quite know what to do
He wants to say "I'm dependable."

George drunk again, the put on, another promise shattered
There just isn't enough truth to be honest
So clandestinely ahhh ahhh
Secretly

"This may be my calling
"Hold your breath
"The Air Forsh Nashunal Guard
"Watch me trust me
"Won't need no help from Daddy."

'Nother lie 'nother lie

"Have no fear!
"Manly honor!"

'Nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie
'Nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie
'Nother lie, 'nother lie...

He never saw Vietnam

He set the example
Whatever he touches
His business deals fall through

"Know what I'm going, see your profit soar
"Fortune rise! Fortune rise!
"Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise!"

'Nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie

What did he lose?
Nothing. Daddy helped him out
Scheming in Texas
Let's give him a state

Finding the Lord somewhere
Hateful God

Rove schemers have sold the troglodyte

"A compassionate conservative"

Lie, 'nother lie

With elation

They are planning still

Behold, your president

'Nother lie, 'nother lie

A man without conscience who lives to kill
As the flaming towers crumbled to the ground
They truly distort; they all do; it's their function
Hear what they're saying about the billowing mushroom cloud
Their eyes aglow

All right!

"Towers on fire, my compassion the same,
"Saddam was behind nine-one-one
"But I know that it's true
"It must be so"

'Nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie,
'Nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie
'Nother lie..."

So the Don chimed in and started an invasion to appease him

Bloody combatants
Oh what to hell; protect the Oil Ministry
He gave them body armor that wasn't any good at all
The Don said "Quit complaining, do your fucking duty, and make do, kid."

In their barren world their minds are barren and so are their souls

Bush not in a mood for caring

Why? Joy for Rummy, Cash for Cheney
Guns for gunning, bombs for bombing
War for warring, kill for nothing

Telling us, "Mission accomplished, Combat operations over in Iraq."

'Nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie, 'nother lie

"W "allows emotional imbalance
Masturbating as soldiers die

The Apostate. The Beast

Be gone, Satan. Go back to Hell

Why is he lying?
Ahhhh, ahhhh, ahhhh

Maybe even impeach him in Washington

Could be a difficult task

Slicker than oil for war because it's a lot like being crazy

War is sick! War is sick!
War is sick! War is sick!

Did he become crazy?

Impeach Bush! Impeach Bush!
Impeach Bush! Impeach Bush!
Impeach Bush! Impeach Bush!

[Repeating and fading segueing into opening sitar strains of...]


Bonus Track
The Inner Leak
Based on "The Inner Light"
By George Harrison
New lyrics by Brandon and Kelli

While looking you straight in the eye
I told you I did not speak
Without stepping out of my white lie
I told you I would find the leak

The more that I've crowed
The less you know
The less you really know

With no regard for my honor
I never take the blame
I laugh as I cause them more horror
While I outed poor Valerie Plame

The more that I've crowed
The less you know
The less your truly know

To search while not searching
To truth without truthing
To pray while I'm preying.

[End cold, but as final sitar notes die away they segue directly into the opening string arrangement of...]

6. Goodbye

Based on "Good Night"
By John Lennon and Paul McCartney
New lyrics by Brandon

Now it's time to say goodbye
Goodbye, don't cry
Now the right will sob and cry
Goodbye, don't cry
Kiss the right so long
Sweep the Reich away

Tom Delay was quite a guy
Goodbye, don't cry
His machine will crash and fry
Goodbye, don't cry
Kiss the right so long
Sweep the Reich away

After all the crimes and lies
Goodbye, don't cry
"W" won't soar so high
Goodbye, don't cry
Kiss the right so long
Sweep the Reich away

Goodbye. So long W
To right wingers everywhere
Goodbye
