lyrics

Hooray For Ignorance

In the land outside the city,
The jobs are gone; hope is gone
With bitterness and jealousy
They contemplate where to put the blame
You can almost hear the bumper stickers scream

Hooray for ignorance
Three cheers for baseless certainty
Down with reason; down with empathy
Down with people who don’t look like me

On the cable TV,
They scream and shout their propaganda out
It’s your religious duty to say
“Forget the poor. The rich need more.”
The billionaires are laughing as they say

Hooray for ignorance
Three cheers for the new plutocracy
Down with science; down with history
Down with eggheads who don’t think like me

Now an orange chimpanzee
Tells us all to hate to make our country great
With unfettered cruelty, bigotry and misogyny
Watch the angry voters rise and say

Hooray for ignorance
Three cheers for the kakistocracy
Down with fairness and equality
Down with people who don’t talk like me
