The Naked King’s Revolting Subjects
 

Black Tuesday

(Sung to the tune of REHAB by Amy Winehouse)


Lyrics by Jo Hill

They TRIED To Make US LEAVE The Plaza

And WE said NO, NO, NO!

Then It TURNED BLACK

And So We CAME BACK

TENFOLD! FOLD! FOLD!

We said "We AIN'T Got The TiME

For NO MORE Of THEIR LYIN'"

They TRIED to Make US LEAVE The Plaza

BUT WE WON'T GO! GO! GO!

 

Hey, WE'D RATHER Be At HOME or Play

'Stead We've BEEN HERE 33 DAYS

'Cause There's NOTHIN'

'Bout The 1st AMENDMENT

WE Can't LEARN on The IN-TER-NET

 

WHY DO All Our Bills SAY

"IN GOD WE TRUST"

When The BANKS Get BAILED OUT

To FEED The MONEY LUST

And EXACTLY HOW IS IT

That WE Are FREE?!?

When The SPECULATORS

FEAST On YOU AND ME

Now RE-VO-LUTION's

Coming Back In Style,

And We AIN'T Takin' NONE

O' Their LAME De-NIALS

We'll DRIVE The TRUTH Home

Past Their PHONY Smile's

So Just HOLD On TIGHT

And DONT TOUCH-THOSE-DIALS!


They TRIED to Make US Leave The Spotlight

But We Said "NO! NO! NO!"

We Put IT ALL on CENTER STAGE

So Everyone Will KNOW! KNOW! KNOW!

Yes WE ARE MAD

And So We CAME BACK

ONE HUNDREDFOLD FOLD, FOLD!

We Said "We Ain't Got The Time

For NO MORE of Their LYIN'"

They TRIED To KEEP The Press A-Way

Now They CAN'T GO! GO! GO!


The Man Asked "WHY are You ALL Here?"

"Well, Just to Give You SOME IDEA

Lot's have LOST JOBS and HOMES

To OUT-SOUR-CING and

Low-Down-Dirty-Loans

Then the Docs Say That We're Depressed

"Double Ur Prozac, and

WATCH-THAT-STR-ESS"?!?

They TRIED to Make Us STAY at Home

But WE Said "NO! NO! NO!"

'Cause Things Looked BLACK

And So We CAME BACK

ONE THOUSANDFOLD, FOLD, FOLD!

We said "We AIN'T Got the TIME

For NO MORE Of Their LYIN'"

They Tried To MAKE US Leave the Streets

But WE WON'T GO! GO! GO!


NO, WE DON'T Want Violent Clashes Again

We KNOW That Cops

ARE NOT The 1%

We're Really ALL On

The SAME Side

So UNITED Let's TAKE DOWN

These PAR-A-SITES!


It's NOT JUST Our PRIDE

'Cause MALIGNANT CORPORATIONS

Get A SCOTT FREE RIDE

While corrUpt Politicians

E-RODE Civil Rights

And STILL We Sacrifice our STARS

MOST BRIGHT

As ProFiteers SEND Them OFF

To "FREEDOM" FIGHT...

For OIL, THAT IS, (bass baritone-B.Hillbillies)

And THAT JUST AIN'T RIGHT!


They THOUGHT They'd QUELL

Our RIGHTEOUS RAGE

But THEY Were WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!

Yeah, The FUTURE's Look'n BLACK

So WE ARE COMIN' BACK

TEN MILLION STRONG, STRONG, STRONG!

WE SAY "It's A CRIME"

And Now WE'VE DRAWN The LINE!

'Cause WE'RE Living in An OLIGARCHY,

But NOT For LONG, LONG, LONG!


They TRIED To Make US LEAVE the Plaza

But WE Said "No! No! No!"

Then It Turned BLACK and So We Came Back

TENFOLD, FOLD, FOLD!

We Said "We AIN'T Got The TIME

For NO MORE Of Their LYIN'

They TRIED To Make US LEAVE The Plaza

BUT WE WON'T GO! GO! GO!
