KIDS’ WHO ARE ACTIVISTS. NEITHER
WASHINGTON NOR MOSCOW. EDUCATE,
AGITATE, DEMONSTRATE).

lyrics

TALKIN' DEMONSTRATION BLUES
There’s gonna’ be a demonstration, ‘cos the Emperor’s got new clothes
If you’re lax with your taxation the flash mobs will expose
And the kids today (they say) are lazy buggers
Well that’s the view of the gentlemen of the press
The coalition politicians better run for cover
‘cos the kids are mad and suitably unimpressed
they say “we will not be defeated, for a fight we just might spoil”
The geeks have landed, birds have tweeted “a watched kettle will not boil”
And we the bastard sons of Margaret Thatcher, smile wryly as we’ve seen it all before
So we’ll stand at the back and shout “Kick over the statues”
What are we waiting for, what are we waiting for, what are we waiting for, what are we waiting for,
You’ve got to
EDUCATE, AGITATE, DEMONSTRATE!!!
EDUCATE, AGITATE, DEMONSTRATE!!!
EDUCATE, AGITATE, DEMONSTRATE!!!
EDUCATE, AGITATE, DEMONSTRATE!!!
DEMONSTRATE!!!

Folk music for City dwellers! ... more
