The Lyrics

When the sun comes up an' over Tiananmen Square
Down in the P-R-C
And the folks are risin' for another day
Doin' their Tai Chi

The people of the town are great
Ain't them that anyone hates

(It's the government) - The government of China blows!
Whoa-oh-oh!
Oh Mao, how it blows!

Well, their propaganda preachers
Lord, they're obnoxious
Their talk's the talk of a clown
When their press release is flyin'
You bet they're lyin'
'Cause it's truth that they shout down

They say that religion's insane
And the Dalai Lama's fair game

(It's the government) - The government of China blows!
Whoa-oh-oh!
Oh Mao, how it blows!

But every day there's a new thing comin'
The ways of a democratic view
The Chairman and his buddies
And their Big-Brother-hoards
They will have to face the music or die

And though for their freedom they still must wait
People are patient there
They just keep on workin' to be free

(It's the government) - The government of China blows!
Whoa-oh-oh!
Oh Mao, how it blows!

Obviously you were't trying for funny here, but still well done. I misread your note yesterday, thought it was from Guy. That's okay, I don't know this song, so I did another Doobie. (that doesn't sound right)

JD - I caught your comment last night that this was comin' . It was worth the wait, well done. Loved this line:

Their talk's the talk of a clown

Well done. Top marks.

That joke about "Doobie" didn't come out right. I was trying to hint that they sound like the Allmans, but I got interrupted and pushed the button. I do mix them up, though.

Thanks Mr. Horse, Rick, and Guy.

And Rick, don't worry about the "Doobie" joke, dude....

[inhaling sounds "ppphhhhhhhtttt...voice gets tight and strained]

...it's okay, dude, really, probably nobody got the reference anyway...

[more inhaling sounds "hhhffffffphhhhhtttt...voice almost inaudible now, very tight and strained]

....be...sides...real..ly...fun..ny...joke...dude...loved it...oh yeah...man...

[massive exhalation "HOOOOOSSSHHH"]

...Now where'd I put my Doritos, man?

Anyone that uses a great classic Doobie tune, and interesting subject matter, deserves high marks.
