DAILY NEWS
(Tom Paxton)

Civil rights leaders are a pain in the neck.
Can't hold a candle to Chiang Kai-shek.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.
Ban the bombers are afraid of a fight.
Peace hurts business and that ain't right.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.

CH:
Daily News, daily blues,
Pick up a copy any time you choose.
Seven little pennies in the newsboy's hand,
And you ride right along to never-never land.

We got to bomb Castro, got to bomb him flat.
He's too damn successful and we can't risk that.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.
There's millions of commies in the freedom fight,
Yelling for Lenin and civil rights.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.

Seems like the whole damn world's gone wrong.
Saint Joe McCarthy is dead and gone.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.
Don't try to make me change my mind with facts.
To hell with the graduated income tax.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.

John Paul Getty is just plain folks.
The UN charter is a cruel hoax.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.
J. Edgar Hoover is the man of the hour.
All he needs is just a little more power.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.

This song has been in the DT since the very beginning - the initials on it are from the original collection in 1988.

I'd say this song is in need of some updating.

It could become "How do I know? I heard it on talk radio" or "...I saw it on the Internet."

Tom updated the lyrics to this song in the 70's. Here's a link to the newer version.

DAILY NEWS [1970]
(Tom Paxton)

Civil rights leaders are a pain in the neck,
Can't hold a candle to Chiang Kai-shek.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.
Ban the bombers are afraid of a fight.
Peace hurts business and that ain't right.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.

Daily News, daily blues.
Pick up a copy any time you choose.
Eight little pennies in the newsboy's hand
And you ride right along to never-never land.

This city needs coppers who are gonna be strong.
If they beat you bloody, then you know you were wrong.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.
Don't you know Pete Seeger is a danger to you?
He keeps singing 'bout peace like the radicals do.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.

Daily News, daily blues.
Pick up a copy any time you choose.
Eight little pennies in the newsboy's hand
And you ride right along to never-never land.

Seems like the whole damn world's gone wrong.
St Joe McCarthy is dead and gone.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.
Now Ronald Reagan's banner has been unfurled.
"Today, California, tomorrow, the world!"
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.

Daily News, daily blues.
Pick up a copy any time you choose.
Eight little pennies in the newsboy's hand
And you ride right along to never-never land.

You know, John Paul Getty is just plain folks.
The UN charter is a cruel hoax!
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.
J. Edgar Hoover is the man of the hour;
All that he needs is just a little more power.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.

Daily News, daily blues.
Pick up a copy any time you choose.
Eight little pennies in the newsboy's hand
And you ride right along to never-never land.
