Pirate Jenny, she got her revenge
hey boys hats off to her.
Sally Bowles got her man, and he got really hurt. Yeah, me and my friends had some good ideas,
but i swear that town got so damn weird,
i got out in time in '39, i don't think I'll ever go back but i remember
Pirate Jenny let me off the hook for one drink I bought for her, and Sally Bowles used to look at me and sigh 'if you weren't so poor. . .'
there ain't no thing about the promise ring
and socialists are so boring,
just a bunch of bullies that I can't stand,
they got elected into office by who? You.
Pirate Jenny, she bought the bar,
now everybody works for her.
And Sally Bowles' 'Mein Herr' bit took off
and she's a star.
But the Bully Boys start sitting up in the front
and the doorman's taking tips and suggestions,
I'm getting in fights the places I used to play,
it's like walking through a mine field every day.
I remember Die Weimar.
I'm a fag, I'm a Jew, how do you do?
That's Mister Anarchist to you.
You think your scene's dead?
Well mine got killed by some dimwits'
Triumph Of The Will.
From the all ages shows,
to the full wet bars,
to the front line squats of your culture wars,
I ain't gonna hit you with the dogma or the lecturing, this has to be a purely personal thing.
You see, Pirate Jenny didn't have no friends
When those bulls they came for her, and
Sally Bowles' man got pushed up against the wall. Now everytime I see a Swiss bank I spit,
you say 'resist control' well I mean it,
'Cause it was come as you are in the cattle cars and there ain't a damn thing you can do about it, except remember,
