ARSON, RAPE, AND BLOODY MURDER

We'll make Eleanor Roosevelt use a Brooklyn accent when she speaks
We'll make Eleanor Roosevelt use a Brooklyn accent when she speaks
We'll make Eleanor Roosevelt use a Brooklyn accent when she speaks,
When the Red Revolution comes!

CHO:
Arson, rape, and bloody murder!
Arson, rape, and bloody murder!
Arson, rape, and bloody murder!
When the Red revolution comes!


And this one about Adlai Stevenson:
We'll make Stevenson write speeches for the people's commissar (3X) When the Red
Revolution comes!
CHORUS

And on and on. Make 'em up as you go along. DRO


They taught us a lot of verses back in '67, when I was over in Ireland for the f
irst time. The only ones I remember are:
We'll make Ian Paisley join the IRA...
We'll make Winston Churchill a big pimple on his nose...
and
We'll make Mr. Khrushchev chief man of the Vatican...
WH

Back in the Fifties in England we used to sing (to the tune of Battle Hymn of th
e Republic)....
We'll hang Anthony Eden from a sour apple tree
We'll hang Anthony Eden from a sour apple tree
We'll hang Anthony Eden from a sour apple tree
When the red revolution comes

Free beer for all the workers
Free beer for all the workers
Free beer for all the workers
When the red revolution comes

We'll make Hugh Gaitskell scrub the steps of Transport House etc. etc...

And I know my Dad used to sing a version for the politicians of his era with som
eone having to "do the cooking for the kids" and someone else having to "do the
washing for the boys".
Folk music is alive and well. BH
