Lyrics

When I was just a boy I met a strange man
He kissed me on the cheek he shook my mom’s hand
I asked her all about it who was that smiling guy
She said he’s just a leach dressed up in a tie
 
Now that I have grown up to be a man
I follow all the news read everything at hand
Gettin’ all my parties straight there’s going to be a fight
I’m going home to Mom’s for dinner Sunday night
 
Sister leans left Brother falls right
Mamma’s in the middle she knows how to fight
Papa’s drinking beer says we’re too uptight
Politics and family we’re staying up all night
 
Every single week it’s always the same
We get a little crazy a little bit insane
Shouting out our point of views we never eat dessert
And Grandma’s baked it special and she’s just a little hurt
 
Sister leans left Brother falls right
Mamma’s in the middle she knows how to fight
Papa’s drinking beer says we’re too uptight
Politics and family we’re staying up all night
 
Communism, Capitalism, Socialism, Fascism,
Anarchism, Conservatism, Separatism, Federalism
Liberalism, Radicalism, Cannibalism, Star Trekism
Ah, too many “isms”
 
Sister leans left Brother falls right
Mamma’s in the middle she knows how to fight
Papa’s drinking beer says we’re too uptight
Politics and family we’re staying up all night
 
Politics and family
Politics and family
Politics and family
 
Politics and family we ain’t going to bed tonight
