Subject: Lyr Add: HENRY FORD WAS A FASCIST (David Rovics)
From: MandolinPaul
Date: 04 Feb 00 - 02:42 PM

Kind of a fun little ditty by David Rovics.

Ford built tanks for the Nazis
And the Nazis used those tanks
To kill off lots of soldiers
In the U.S. Army ranks

Yes, Henry Ford was a fascist
And a nasty one was he
He'd build tanks for anyone
For the proper fee

Henry Ford spoke to his lackeys
And he said, "isn't this great?
"We'll attack our enemies
"And we'll retaliate!"

Henry Ford was a fascist
And a cunning liar, too
A brownshirt with a swastika
Draped in red, white and blue

Henry Ford spoke to his workers
And he said, "you dare not strike!
"You must be patriotic
"And take on my Third Reich!"

Ford built tanks for the Nazis
And he built many more
To kill off lots of peasants
In Peru and Salvador

Yes, Henry Ford was a fascist
I heard that when he died
The last words to leave his lips
Was "arbeit macht frei"

The dollar was his icon
On whichever shore
And Henry's only motto
Was "make money and make war"

Yes, Henry Ford was a fascist
That's all I have to say
I will spit on Henry's rotting grave
Until my dying day

Not too subtle, but then again, neither was Henry.

Being the type who rarely dislikes a song due to lyrics, and usually judges songs on the "can-it-be-whistled" scale, everything is a sublety.

But boy did he love old time square dancing! Wasn't a big blues fan though.

Funny song. What are the odds that one person (me) had just finished typing Ford's name into another thread (the Dylan one) and one minute later I read this? Holy cow, only on Mudcat!
