Now if an order was to come down from the Pope,
The Catholics ain't allowed to smoke no dope,
If they couldn't get high would they feel real low,
Would they get pissed off down in Mexico,

And if Mayor John Lindsey was to propose,
The old Calcutta show had to wear clothes,
Would they still come all the way from Kokomo,
Just to dig the show,

What if Eldridge Cleaver was to devise a plan,
For the Black Panther Party of America to be merged with the Ku Klux Klan,
If Richard Nixon made Spiro Agnew
The new ambassador to Timbuktu,

If he was doing real well would you guess
It would prove his relationship with CBS,
What if Lester Maddox was to pass a law,
That the black population of Georgia had to be moved into Arkansas,

Would it make Orval Faubus sore and start a 2 state civil war,
Would they ask the government for federal aid to buy pickaxe handles and razorblades,
Bop Bop Bop Bop Rodeo Dope,

Now if Martha Mitchell was to address,
A special meeting of the SDS,
If she told them her views on Vietnam,
Would they make her an honorary minuteman,

And if Governor Wallace was to come unglued,
And run for President in 72,
Could he carry all of the Southern states,
With Julian Bond for a running mate,

Now if the CIA, and the IRS, and the FCC,
Found out that J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI owned stock in AT&T,
And the UAW, and the BNO, and the AFL and the CIO, and the ICC,
And the BBD, and the LSU and UCLA, and the OEO, and the KKK, and the PTA and the LNA, and the UPI and the IBM, all BS.
