Jerry Brown May Be Cali Gov Again

And in anticipation of that possibility I dug up this stunning classic performance by Dead Kennedys.  Ah, those were the days.  Just in case you have trouble understanding the lyrics, they follow.  Whether one likes the messenger, the massage is profound.  I wonder if Michelle Obama was listening?

I am Governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles
And never frowns
Soon I will be president…

Carter Power will soon go away
I will be Fuhrer one day
I will command all of you
Your kids will meditate in school
Your kids will meditate in school!

[Chorus:]
California Uber Alles
California Uber Alles
Uber Alles California
Uber Alles California

Zen fascists will control you
100% natural
You will jog for the master race
And always wear the happy face

Close your eyes, can’t happen here
Big Bro’ on white horse is near
The hippies won’t come back you say
Mellow out or you will pay
Mellow out or you will pay!

[Chorus]

Now it is 1984
Knock-knock at your front door
It’s the suede/denim secret police
They have come for your uncool niece

Come quietly to the camp
You’d look nice as a drawstring lamp
Don’t you worry, it’s only a shower
For your clothes here’s a pretty flower.

DIE on organic poison gas
Serpent’s egg’s already hatched
You will croak, you little clown
When you mess with President Brown
When you mess with President Brown

[Chorus]

  1. I gotta be drunker than I was in order to stand listening to that.😉

  2. True, the visuals may not be everyone’s cup of tea🙂 …though the juxtaposition of the Nazi salute and the meditation pose near the end is genius. The profound point I hope comes through is the true face of fascism in government’s attempts to control your diet, exercise, weight (Michelle?) and even your thinking.

    Hippies were just Nazis with greasy hair!

    Also, the chorus really kicks ass.
