(To the tune of : Brahms Op 49-4 “Lullaby”)
Go to sleep, close your eyes
There is nothing to see here
We will watch through the night
And through the dawn’s early light
Election time, (shh!) don’t wake up!
You can vote while you’re sleeping
Tick that box and go away
It’s all theatre anyway
Meanwhile we’ll make friends for you
With our love-bombing drones
While you rest, safe and sound
Locked up safe in your homes
Listen close, while you dream:
The corporations all love you
Those who make bombs do, of course,
Want to see the end of war
Time to wake, time to work
Wave to those cops in the humvee
Pay your tax and pay your share
Towards his military hardware.
Now close your mind, trust in us
We’re sure you’ve nothing to hide
We will keep you safe from all harm
Hey, you forgot to flush the john!
Know that we’ll watch over you
Hey, you forgot to flush your loo!
