John Wayne was a Nazi
He liked to play S.S.
He had a picture of Adolph ole' boy
Tucked in his cowboy vest.

Well, he would string up your mama
Sure he would torture your pop
Sure he would march you up to the wall
Sure he would hang you by your last ball.

He was a nazi!
But not anymore
He was a nazi, life evens the score
He was a nazi!
But not anymore
He was a nazi

John Wayne slaughtered our Indian brothers
Burned their villages and raped their mothers
Now he has given them a white man's lord
"Live by this, or die by my sword!"

He was a nazi!
He's not anymore
He was a nazi, life evens the score
He was a nazi!
But not anymore
He was a nazi

John Wayne killed a lot of gooks in war.
We don't give a fuck about John anymore.
We know his tale of blood and gore,
Just another pawn for the capitalist whore.

He was a nazi!
He's not anymore
He was a nazi, life evens the score
He was a nazi!
But not anymore
He was a nazi

John Wayne wore an army uniform
Didn't like us reds and fags that didn't conform
Great White Hero had so much nerve,
Lived much longer than he deserved

You were a nazi!
You're not anymore
You were a nazi, life evens the score
You were a nazi!
But not anymore
You were a nazi

Late show Indian or Mexican dies
Klan propaganda legitimized
Hypocrite coward never fought a real fight
When i see John i'm ashamed to be white
Death Bed Christian of this you avowed
If god's alive, you'll roast in Hell
Well done, we've got no regrets,
As long as you died a long and painful death.

You were a nazi!
You're not anymore
You were a nazi, death evened the score
You were a nazi!
But not anymore
You were a nazi!
Death evened the score,
You're dead, dead, dead.

    General CommentThis song was written after the death of john wayne because everyone was mourning someone who, in all truth, wasn't really that great and had some fascist views. And what better way to tell america to get the fuck over it than calling him a nazi? This was done very creatively, definitely MDC at their best. Especially the sweet bassline at the beginning.

    General CommentWhats funny/ ironic are those old US army Vietnam war documentaries/ propaganda films with John Wayne introducing each different episode, banging on about red China and Vietnam an communism etc etc.. Talk about the pot callong the kettle black. Great song form a great underrated band. I'd like to see MDC fans put up more comments on more of their songs!!
