about

quick Spanish lesson: "viva la gente" = "long live the people"

lyrics

I’m jumpin’ ship with all the rats
this ship is sinking, sinking so fast
free markets do not equal
free minds, free the people.

fuck el presidente
viva, viva la gente

there’s struggle down in the streets
there’s trouble up in the cheap seats
fill the bottle with kerosene
light the fuse and then we scream

fuck el presidente
viva, viva la gente

at the White House
courthouse
whorehouse
it’s all the same
at the White House
crackhouse
madhouse
it’s all the same
at the White House
courthouse
whorehouse
it’s all the same.
White House
crackhouse
it’s a madhouse
it’s all the same
just the names
have been changed
to protect the swine

one, two
fuck you, die
you fucking pig
we know
what you did

I’m jumpin’ ship with all the rats
this ship is sinking, sinking so fast
a failed state lies in state
like rottin’ fuckin’ Reagan, it smells great
no

fuck el presidente
viva, viva la gente
