Methinks We Don't Protest Enough



Naomi C at Correntewire wondered where the Protest Songs were for the Iraq War--or maybe why our Corporate Radio Bosses don't play them when they come along. Anyway, I wrote something and here it is...

Dance Party, Shake Your Thing

I was drivin’ ‘cross town
Too many cars brought me down
I turned on the radio, lookin’ for a sound
All I heard was some clown
Just another clown

I changed the station to feed my head
All the singers brought me dread
Played so many times, like a hooker left for dead
All my thoughts were shed
Took my money and fled

(chorus)
Dance party, shake your thing
Get on the dance floor with your bling
Dance party everywhere
What’s going on, why do you care?
Dance party everywhere

Remember when all the parents freaked
Kids were protesting in the streets
Do your own thing, all the freedom you seek
Is now a movie of the week
Just a movie of the week

Bottom line mentality
Dead soldiers spell finality
Cast a net without neutrality
Welcome to totality
Just never you mind totality

(chorus)
Dance party, shake your thing
Get on the dance floor with your bling
Dance party everywhere
What’s going on, why do you care?
Dance party everywhere

I was drivin’ ‘cross town
Too many cars brought me down
I turned on the radio, lookin’ for a sound
All I heard was some clown
Just another clown

I changed the station to feed my head
All the singers brought me dread
Played so many times, like a hooker left for dead
All my thoughts were shed
Took my money and fled

(chorus)
Dance party, shake your thing
Get on the dance floor with your bling
Dance party everywhere
What’s going on, why do you care?
Dance party everywhere
