If Phil Ochs Were Alive, Though I'd Not Wish It on Him

I cried when they mocked Donna Brazile
Tears ran down my spine
And I cried when Joe Biden stepped aside
As though I’d lost a father of mine
But Chelsea Manning got what was coming
She got what he asked for this time
So love me, love me, love me, i’m a liberal

I go to white BLM rallies
I arrive in my new hybrid car
I back GLBTQ in the Army
I love all immigrants from afar
But don’t talk about revolution
That’s going a little bit too far
So love me, love me, love me, i’m a liberal

I cheered when Hillary was chosen
My faith in the system restored
I’m in favor of affordable college
For those who stand out from the hoard
I love humanitarian bombings
And canvassing votes door-to-door
So love me, love me, love me, i’m a liberal

The people who voted for Donald
Should all hang their heads in shame
I can’t understand how their minds work
The facts can’t deny climate change
But anonymous CIA sources
Are doubted only by the deeply deranged
So love me, love me, love me, i’m a liberal

I watch MSNBC daily
I’ve learned to take every view
You know, I’ve demonized Vladimir Putin
And I’m ready to come after you
In defending our sacred elections
There’s no one more red, white and blue
So love me, love me, love me, i’m a liberal

I vote for the Democtratic Party
They want Presidents to be strong
Except for Republican presidents
Whose whole inclination is wrong
I’ll send all the money you ask for
But don’t ask me to come on along
So love me, love me, love me, i’m a liberal

Once i was young and impulsive
I wore every conceivable pin
Even went to the socialist meetings
Learned all the old union hymns
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
