Lyrics
Love Me I’m a Liberal Licensed for use on “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs” released on 9/11/11. This version of Phil Ochs' 1966 classic is updated for 2011 “liberal” posturing. Of course, there are many liberals who live by their beliefs. This is not about them. I cried about them killing the Kennedys Tears ran down my face And I cried about the murder of Martin I thought it was such a disgrace! But don’t talk to me about “conspiracies” There are “lone nuts” all over the place! So love me, love me, love me! I’m a Liberal! I go to peace vigils and rallies It puts my poor conscience at ease And I vote for the Democratic Party Though I know it’s the corporates they’ll please At least they’re the lesser of two evils The hipper of hypocracies! So love me, love me, love me! I’m a Liberal! GW was a national disaster! And Cheney, a national disgrace! Using big lies and terror and torture! To wage wars and put puppets in place! But I cheered when Obama bombed Libya! Cause killing was correct in that case! So love me, love me, love me! I’m a Liberal! I cheered when Obama was chosen My faith in the system restored Though he sold out to AIPAC and the Banksters! I’m sure our rights won’t be ignored! And he won’t talk about Revolution! Or a Health Plan that’s just and assured! So love me, love me, love me! I’m a Liberal! Oh the people of Mesopotamia Should all hang their heads in shame Now I can’t understand how their minds work They are Muslims! So they are to blame! And if you talk “9/11 Truth” to my children… I hope the cops take down your name! So love me, love me, love me! I’m a Liberal! Yes I read Daily KOS and The Nation I’ve learned to take every view I’m for Israel and for occupation I feel like I’m almost a Jew! And when it comes to Iraq and Afghanistan There’s no one more red, white, and blue! So love me, love me, love me! I’m a Liberal! I vote for the Democratic Party They want UN Troops to be strong! I attend all the Bob Dylan concerts… He sure gets me singing those songs! Now I can’t send the money you ask for But I send my best wishes along! So love me, love me, love me! I’m a Liberal! Sure once I was young and impulsive Wore ever conceivable pin Even went to anti-war meetings Learned to sing “Blowin’ in the Wind” Ah but I’ve grown older and wiser And that’s why I’m turning you in! So love me, love me, love me! I’m a Liberal!
