The Lyrics

Hope it never happens, but they may soon be "watching" you....

Good health has now left you, too late now you see
Our times, they are a-changing, and our rights now they're not free
We've saw it in the tea leaves, but fooled by that TV
And now our lives are scorned like "1984"

The Bill Of Rights our podium, but now it's full of air
And now that you're eighty, the Pres says, no health care
No surgery now for anything, tomorrow is a prayer
I've read that all before, in "1984"
No needs, no needs, we give you free?
Forced to love all that Czar like rule
Thought it would not last, like sheep we're owned
Like "1984", Barack says no more
What's our country for, don't you ask for mor-or-or-or-ore

Mor-or-or-or-ore

I live now in a stadium, short life is what they've deemed
No coverage for my age now, no matter, they're not mean
I can have free food at anytime, what is in this Soylent Green?
My age the Czars abhor like "1984"
Your needs, your needs are not so free
It's like a hellish movie role
Short life it won't last, to the wolves we're thrown
Like "1984", I now have open sores
Aging is a chore, then they say no more
Freedom once before, old age means no mor-or-or-or-ore

Sor-or-or-or-ores

"1984"
Country's creeping toward
"1984"
Big Bama wants some more
"1984",
Our country's creeping toward
"1984"...........

I echo all comments above! I enjoyed lots of parodies relating to Obama and current events. I only listened to this OS on YouTube just now and I love this song! I grew up with Bowie's music only in the 80s. Here's 5's!

Thanks, TJC. This OS fit too creepily well for these scary times....

What's scary is that we're doing it to ourselves: being tracked with our GPS cars and cell phones, putting our entire personal lives on MySpace and Twitter (none of the above for moi, thank you).... The Communists overthrew the Czars; the Gipper (Reagan) overthrew the Communists, and now Obama overthrows all of that and puts us back under Czars and a self-proclaimed Communist. History repeats itself, eternally... does anyone even know that "Czar" carries negative connotations (dictatorship, totalitarianism). My ancestors swam across the ocean to flee Czars, and I'll die under Czars. Gee, thanks, O ... well done, Mark.
