I am looking for a quote from Billy Bragg that is particularly relevant this election season in the US. I believe it appeared on the liner notes to his album "Internationale" and it began: "To My American Friends.." and ended by saying "Please be more careful next time." I plan on leaving this inspirational quote on the blackboard for my students on election day. (I do not, however, plan on singing the Internationale in class.)

Try putting North Sea Bubble/Billy Bragg into Google or whatever. Good Luck.

I don't see the second line in the North Sea Bubble, but here are the lyrics:

I went out drinking with Thomas Paine
He said that all revolutions are not the same
They are as different as the cultures
That give them birth
For no one idea
Can solve every problem on Earth

So don't expect it all to happen
In some prophesied political fashion
For people are different
And so are nations
You can borrow ideas
But you can't borrow situations

In Leningrad the people say
Perestroika can be explained this way
The people who told us
That two and two is ten
Are now trying to tell us
That two and two is five

We're living in a North Sea Bubble
We're trying to spend our way out of trouble

You keep buying these things but you don't need them
But as long as you're comfortable it feels like freedom

My American friends don't know what to do
But they'll wait a long time for a Beverley Hills coup

War! What is it good for
It's good for business
