We want the world and we want it now!
International, Internationale,
We want the world and we want it…

I'm a hard-hittin' poet from the Left of the spectrum.
Dis my Party…get a boot in your rectum.
The Revolution is world-wide
So hop on the bus and let's go for a ride.

Come on, ya'll, there's plenty of room
We're gonna make a stop at Lenin's tomb.
You need us; we need you.
Yeah, we got something to prove.

Marx, Lenin, Antonio Gramsci
Showed us the way.
They gave us a plan 'G'.
Drink up the knowledge
Like a quality brandy.
Can ya dig me?

All the socialists in the hizzy:
Get down to sounds of Jihad E!

I'm a postmodern man;
I'm down with Foucault.
I can philosophize
With the best of 'em, bro.
That's not pipe, but this sure is,
So pack up the bowl
With the kind shizziz.

Yeah, international.

Come on, ya'll, there's plenty of room.
We're gonna make a stop a Lenin's tomb.
You need us; we need you.

Damn, my evil capitalist computer is preventing me from listening to the glorious music! CURSE YOU BILL GATES!!!!!!!!! You and that accursed money of yours!!!!!

He kind of fell off the beat near the end there... He needs to distirbute the beat equitably!!

Damn! Already gettin' ripped by the kkkritics.

Word to the Muthaland!

I've contacted Che Guevara's daughter for some legal advice. There's some kind of infringement going on here...some copyright or trademark violation. I don't care if I am dead and buried in Paris. The dead have rights too! And we vote! Maybe I can find that Parsian lawyer the CafePress uses.

I hear a very gentle sound
With your ear...down to the ground.

We want the world and we want it...
We want the world and we want it...


Mr. Mojo Risin'
Come on, J Mo. I was just tryin' to show you a little love. Consider it an homage, 'G'. At least I didn't use a sample of your voice.

Yo, say "what up?" to William Blake for me.

Ghosts crowd the young gangsta's eggshell mind

A poignant reworking of Ghost Song's most haunting line. Sounds like the young gangsta just witnessed his first drive-by.

Did you see my new book? IM on the cover with the real president...neener neener!

My publicist recommended that I put a photo of some guy named Casey on the book-cover, but when I saw he was a soldier, I said "No frookin' way, no baby-killers on my book!"

So anyhoo, come on down to my ditch and buy a copy, not that I need the money or anything as my liberal faith provides for me. I dont mind eating bugs and bathing in puddles. Did I say bathe? Well, not really bathe per se.

I dont mind eating bugs and bathing in puddles.

I think "marinating in puddles" would be more appropriate.

Excuse me...are you talking to me Betty? You might want to be careful, I know people. One word and Martin Sheen is on you like white on rice!

Damn warmongers dont know when to shut their yappers and accept the new world order, MY order.

Um...yeah. That was interesting. Hey, Kommissar Betty, do you need a RedPod to listen to the music? There should be some in the State Store.

Music to the Red Ears,

Wait, who is Cindy Sheehan? I haven't heard that name in so long that I must have forgotten. Oh well, if it's not constantly in the news anymore, then it must not be important.

About listening to the music, every time I try to listen, it says that I need to download QuickTime 5.0. Whenever I try, it just loads iTunes setup and starts trying to get me to buy QuickTime 7. Stupid capitalist advertising....

Author Cindi
If it werent for the Rovian plots constantly hatched against me, my name would be front page, every day of the year.

Im moving on up, just as soon as my book hits number one at the NYT. In fact, Ill be moving on up so fast that MoveOn.dum will make me chairman before the month is out.

When Im elected leader of this crappy nation, Im hunting all of you down. Support me now or support me later with a gun to your head, its up to you.

Oh look! A centipede, come here you!

With all that traveling, protesting, and crack smoking that she's been doing, when did she even have time to wrie a book?

Comrade Boxer
As we of the left believe in socialized everything -from medicine and health care to all the wealth generated by so-called creative, productive, hard-working captialists - so do we believe in communal authorship. As an elected politician I am entitled to have books written for me - in my name. After all - what belongs to the people belongs to me. So Mz. Sheeham is entitled to the peoples' authors writing books in her name, because leftist reality is fiction.

Bollocks! Not another townie in an Addidas tracky! Jihad E, you gun-wielding Yankee wanker, I was the first alternative recording artist to celebrate the Internationale. I was never popular in Amerika because you pathetic wazzocks don't have a clue about music. Typical American poseur you are, finally catching on to what we Europeans did decades ago. So sack it you manky sod, you dodgy grotbag. To quote the recently departed Joe Strummer (I'm sure you ignorant colonists don't even know who he is), "I'm so bored with the USA!"

Have a looky for yourself; here's my translation/interpretation of Eugene Pottier's original lyrics:

Verse 1
Stand up, all victims of oppression,
For the tyrants fear your might!
Don't cling so hard to your possessions,
For you have nothing if you have no rights!
Let racist ignorance be ended,
For respect makes the empires fall!
Freedom is merely privilege extended,
Unless enjoyed by one and all.

So come brothers and sisters,
For the struggle carries on.
The Internationale,
Unites the world in song.
So comrades, come rally,
For this is the time and place!
The international ideal,
Unites the human race.

Verse 2
Let no one build walls to divide us,
Walls of hatred nor walls of stone.
Come greet the dawn and stand beside us,
We'll live together or we'll die alone.
In our world poisoned by exploitation,
Those who have taken, now they must give!
And end the vanity of nations,
We've but one Earth on which to live.
(Repeat chorus)

Verse 3
And so begins the final drama,
In the streets and in the fields.
We stand unbowed before their armour,
We defy their guns and shields!
When we fight, provoked by their aggression,
Let us be inspired by like and love.
For though they offer us concessions,
Change will not come from above!
(Repeat chorus)

I'm one bloody brilliant baztard, so piss off 'E'!

Ahhh! Reminds me of the great Wobblies song, "This Land Is Your Land"

If only the children could hear this. We cannot wait for them to learn how to READ the LYRICS! The must get the message now and not when their local collective soviet teacher's union finishes their latest democratic fundraiser. The KGB must bring limited reading to the masses!
