"Dead Yankee Drawl" as written by and Bradfield/edwards/jones/moore....
Bill and Ted and Wayne's world drawl
Just another dull fucking bore
Vietnam's cool now even superman's believed
Hussein still in power as the media war retreats

Suck your honey until you choke
You are a mechanism of social control
Multi-national aim of one world culture
Turning one dollar into another and another

Dead Yankee drawl hey we got your beat
Dead Yankee drawl hey we love Oscar
Smothering injustice seen through starving eyes
Tearing down forests just to earn a buck

Killed off literature for sex and violence
Fed a generation the equivalent of silence
Dragged jack down to self same bigotry
Passive acceptance of a consumer society

Fake sentiments tying up contracts
Making idols of guitars and haircuts
Multi-national aim of one world culture
Turning one dollar into another and another

Dead Yankee drawl hey we got your beat
Dead Yankee drawl hey we love Oscar
Smothering injustice seen through red Indian eyes
Silent race war of sweet Hollywood lies

Let's go down to Greenwich village and desecrate
The noraid slogans that justify 6 countries hate

Let's go down Redondo beach and wax body company
'cause reality for t.v. is Disney, not king, Rodney

Let's go down to Indiana youth center quickly
Tyson's money ain't as free as junior Kennedy's

Dead Yankee dead Yankee dead Yankee drawl
