Love Me I’m A Liberal – Vic Sadot 2011 Update of Phil Ochs 1966 Classic – “Berkeley Calling”

Love Me I’m a Liberal 

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!
