When the Red Revolution Brings Its Solution Along
When the Red Revolution brings its solution along, along,
There'll be no more lootin'
'Cause we'll be shootin' that Howe [Wall] Street throng!
Wake up, you proletarians! Don't act like seminarians!
Expropriate barbarians! Build a worker's republic!
Surplus value and capital you will not find there -
Exploitation and mass starvation will disappear.
I'm just a Red again, saying what I said again -
No boss ere long -
When the Red Revolution brings its solution along!
- from Ruthie Gorton (L.A.), who said it came from Austin TX,
in Vancouver 1975.
Tune: "When the Red, Red Robin..."
