"Brain Washing" as written by and Neville Livingston....
Old Mr. Joe, he build a house away
On top of some hill
Old Mr. Joe knew he had to go, so
He got right down and wrote bank will
He say now, here's to mother hen
And her chicken, Lord have mercy now
Master, will you take a roll in the mud
Like you know you should?

The old barnyard, the old barnyard
Birds and the chick, ooh-wee
Who's got to watch out for brother mongoose
With his top hap and walking-stick?

It's just the poor's brain washing
(Poor's) They told me a long time ago
It's just the poor's brain washing, ooh-wee
(Poor's brain washing) Now look at a thing like this

Cinderella and her long lost fellow
In the midnight hour, she lost her silver slipper
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
While Jack and Jill had themselves a fall

It's just the poor's (brain washing)
And I don't need it no longer (washing)
It's just the poor's brain washing
Coming through to a poor man's child, ooh-wee, look at this

Little Miss Muffet she sat on a tuffet
While Little Red Riding Hood delivered her grandmom's food
Ooh-wee ooh-wee
Ooh-wee, look at one more thing like this
The cow jumping over the moon
While the dish got jealous, he grabbed the handy spoon

It's just the poor's brain washing
And I don't need it no longer, I don't want it no longer
I don't need it no longer (washing)
And I don't care for no more brain washing (washing)

    General CommentI think the songs sybolic for a man with a childhood that when it came time for him to be one with Family of his own he couldnt, (cause thats what smart ppl do when they try to explain something deeper than words)
    but wat do i know, he was older than i am

    General Comment"will you take a roll in the mud like you know you should?"
    asking god for help

    the songs more to explain WHY the man cant than "he can't"
    love this guy
