Old Mother Reagan
And her crew
Took away
From me and you

I hope she goes far away
She better go far away
Y'know it ain't right
When it's all wrong

This is the Old Mother Reagan
Protest song
Old Mother Reagan
She's so dumb

She's so dangerous
How come
Old Mother Reagan went to heaven
But at the pearly gates
She was stopped!

    General CommentIt's funny that the last poster says that this is the one song that he/she would take off of "The Blind Leading the Naked", since this is one of the few songs I actually like from that record.

    General CommentThe one song I would take off "The Blind Leading the Naked."

    General CommentI was so glad to see there is no debate to the meaning of this song. Kudo's to the deep thinking SongMeanings posters for not trying to explain it. God I miss Reagan though and the damn Violent Femmes are one of my favorite bands - go figure.
