Phil Ochs’s song “Love Me I’m a Liberal” updated with some of my own words since the election of DJT.

———————————————————–

Lyrics:

Well, I cried when Trump stole the election
I know the Russians were to blame
And I voted for Hillary Clinton
We’ll break that glass ceiling some day!
But don’t tell me Bernie would’ve beat him
His ideals just got in the way
So love me, love me, love me, I’m a liberal

Now I go to every anti-Trump rally
And I bought an electric car
And we’ll show em in the next election
Love always Trumps hate, hear me roar
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 Obama was chosen
Best prez of my lifetime so far
And ya know he just did what he had to
Continuing all Bush’s wars
And I love all the blacks and latinos
As long as they don’t move next door
So love me, love me, love me, I’m a liberal

Those who fly the Confederate Flag
Should all hang their heads in shame
I can’t understand how their minds work
Don’t they see that we’re all the same?
But if you ask me to bus my children
I hope the cops take down your name
So love me, love me, love me, I’m a liberal

I listen to All Things Considered
And I donate to every fund drive
I love to sing Give Peace a Chance
Those words get me feeling alive!
When it comes to the conflict in Gaza
I’ll always take Israel’s side!
So love me, love me, love me, I’m a Liberal

I vote for the Democratic Party
I want the US to be strong
Keep fighting those cowardly terrorists
With your honorable democratic bombs
And I’ve cleared my browser history
So bring the NSA right along
And love me, love me, love me, I’m a Liberal

Of course I support Black Lives Matter
Those police killings all must be stopped
And black folks would be real hard workers
If we’d only give them a fair shot
But don’t talk to me about reparations
Cuz you know I earned everything I got!
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 some socialist meetings
Learned history from Howard Zinn
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
