Just Sayin' - Hogeye Bill                                                                                            Play mp3

The Nazis burned immoral books
to cleanse the world of decadence.
Destroy books for decency.
So corruption and immorality
ended in 1933.

What? Are you telling me it didn’t?

Some countries ban the swastika
to free the world from fascism.
Scorn scribble for democracy.
So worship of State and military
ended in 1953.

What? Are you telling me it didn’t?

Sometimes a symbol is too superficial
a band-aid on a broken bone
a heart scratched on a broken home
bitching ‘bout smoke
as the fire burns on.

Jousting at symbols. Just sayin’.

Some stigmatize the Stars and Bars
to rid the world of racism.
Ban a flag for equality.
No doubt hate and bigotry
will all be over presently.

What? Are you telling me it won’t?

Drive the demons underground.
Bottle ‘em up like wine.
Put them in Pandora’s box
and all will be just fine!
Let them fester in the shadows.
Roots remain in place.
A cancer in the public gut
but with a smiley face.
Just sayin’.

Gays celebrate and think it's hip
to register their relationship.
State decreed equality.
Never ever more shall be
An unkind word or bigotry.

What? That’s just pie in the sky?

The n-word became impolite
in 1972.
After that racism’s dead
There’s nothing left to do.
So pack up all your picket signs
now everyone’s the same.
Take your ticket, don’t complain
there’s no one left to blame.
Just kiddin’.

Feminism’s victory wrote
by winning the right to vote and smoke.
Rulers posed and signed the bill.
So never more be under heel
or forced to serve a master’s will.

What? We have to keep on struggling?

Sometimes a symbol is too superficial
a band-aid on a broken bone
a heart scratched on a broken home
bitching ‘bout smoke
as the fire burns on.

Jousting at symbols. Just sayin’.
