Pop! Pop!
RFK just got shot!
With TV hot on the spot so
All of us can watch
Fascination / With
Assassination
The Kennedy tragedies
Violence on the air as the children
Stare
Don't gulp / You'll choke
Break fast for a commercial
Gleem / Listerine
At least twice a day / Brush those
Nasty germs away
While our affiliate in LA joins the fray
 
1968
 
No time to waste
Psychedelic's passé
Moody Blues / Pink Floyd
Popped in Monterey
Beatles too
Sgt Pepper can't compete with
Troops on the streets
Doesn't phase Jim Morrison / Though
Boy wanders the stage / In a daze
Flash of cock sends the country into
Shock
And his dad's an admiral!
 
Even Dylan's deserted / Converted to
Jesus
Heavy metal's in
Led Zep / Steppenwolf
Born to be wi-i-ild
While Mick quick switches to a
Street fightin man
Got to livin up the
Act / As
A civil rights rally suddenly goes
Bloody
In Belfast
Troubles begin / And last and last
Riots in Paris / Students bring down
DeGaulle
Who's who?
The last living legend of World War Two
Then there's Prague
Workers / Students / Tanks
Take to the streets
But what's the beef?
That's some commie country's business
Beyond our reach
Still
Crack! Crack!
Did you hear that?
Barefoot on the stairs and
Terrified
Hurry back to bed / Scouts
Lay awake while you do a head count
That's a one / A two / A three
Lightning strike's at least an ocean away
While we're home safe
So why are you staring up at me?
Can't you see / I'm too busy
Fending off ants in the grass to
Intervene
 
Chicago
The Democrats convene
LBJ won't go
Nor will I seek / Hell no!
Outside the walls of the
Convention hall
Tear gas / Our boys in uniform
Marchin in time behind
Halftracks / Armed and ready to
Resist
A domestic insurrection
Civil War
Brother pitched against another
Innocent / Or with intent
Tanks on city streets
First time ever in America
Kids the cops are bashing
Could be yours / If not mine
Our own sons and daughters
On the line
Shame Shame
Shake your finger in the face of
Democracy
While
(THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING!)
(THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING)
Along with history
