From the recording Politics and Family

Lyrics

When I was just a boy I met a strange manHe kissed me on the cheek he shook my mom’s handI asked her all about it who was that smiling guyShe said he’s just a leach dressed up in a tie Now that I have grown up to be a manI follow all the news read everything at handGettin’ all my parties straight there’s going to be a fightI’m going home to Mom’s for dinner Sunday night Sister leans left Brother falls rightMamma’s in the middle she knows how to fightPapa’s drinking beer says we’re too uptightPolitics and family we’re staying up all night Every single week it’s always the sameWe get a little crazy a little bit insaneShouting out our point of views we never eat dessertAnd Grandma’s baked it special and she’s just a little hurt Sister leans left Brother falls rightMamma’s in the middle she knows how to fightPapa’s drinking beer says we’re too uptightPolitics and family we’re staying up all night Communism, Capitalism, Socialism, Fascism,Anarchism, Conservatism, Separatism, FederalismLiberalism, Radicalism, Cannibalism, Star TrekismAh, too many “isms” Sister leans left Brother falls rightMamma’s in the middle she knows how to fightPapa’s drinking beer says we’re too uptightPolitics and family we’re staying up all night Politics and familyPolitics and familyPolitics and family Politics and family we ain’t going to bed tonight
