      DEAD KENNEDYS LYRICS

      "California Uber Alles"

      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

      California Uber Alles
      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

      California Uber Alles
      Uber Alles California

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

      Come quitely 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 crack, you little clown
      When you mess with President Brown

      California Uber Alles
      Uber Alles California

        I just received the last one and it is 250-102 just like it should be.
        This is a good deal for the very patient. If I had waited 11 months for
        a part I needed to get my machine running at all, I would have been
        unhappy.
