No!

This is my latest song, inspired by recent protests.  I stand with you, brothers and sisters!   I’m thinking maybe a reggae feel?  The music is yet to be determined but here’s the lyrics.

No!  No!  No!

I won’t give you my approval      (verse 1)

I won’t be cowed so I agree

I will stand in opposition

Silence is consent tacitly

I will stand up with my brothers

Defiant to our klepto state

Every day our ranks are growing

And becoming more irate

It makes me smile to see that now

The Arab Spring has reached our shores

Maybe now we’ll rid our land

Of all the corporate lackey whores

I can hear their voices now

Wall Street has been beckoning

Much like I can hear the cry

To ensure the banksters’ reckoning

 

You know that we know, you know    (chorus)

We know that you know that we know

And now that you know that we know what you did

You’re trying like mad at maintaining the lid

But now it’s too late cuz the anger is boiling

You’re frightened and scared and you’re shorts you’re a soiling

Now you can see that the tide is a turning

The battle is lost and your palace is burning

The corporate lackeys and all of the shills

Make for the exits and head for the hills

The masses arisen, the power it kills

Like a bottle of Jack and a handful of pills

We know, you know, you know that it’s so

That all of your hookers and mountains of blow

And all of your excesses all got to go

The ninety-nine answered and told your ass NO

 

No!  No!  No!

The one percent will leave us nothing    (verse 2)

And thus unite the ninety-nine

Drag the banksters from the shadows

Shine the spotlight on their crime

We’re the ones that you can’t sucker

We’re the ones who are not blind

Growing daily are the numbers

Of the class of ninety-nine

All your plans will come to nothing

Because we won’t go quietly

In the end you’ll be undone

Because we’ll stand defiantly

Either with a massive perp walk

Or if vigilante style

There will be a time and soon

That lady justice finally smiles

 

(chorus)

 

No!  No!  No!

You will not escape our justice    (verse 3)

All your lies will all come out

You will get what’s surely coming

Of that there is no more doubt

We know all that you’ve been hiding

The evidence exists in large amount

Know that there’ll be no escaping

You shall be held to account

We can see you in the shadows

Hiding from the creeping light

All your efforts will be fruitless

You will not stay out of sight

We can see you and we’ll squeeze you

We really wouldn’t want to be you

Now it’s clear we really scare you

Try and stop us now we dare you

 

(chorus)
