the general

hush little baby don’t say a word
papa’s gonna see his kids preferred

and if the rest all shout and stamp
papa’s gonna put them in a transit camp

and if that transit camp flares up
papa’s gonna send in the riot cops

and if those riot cops don’t win
papa’s gonna order the military in

and if the military falls back
papa’s gonna give everyone the sack

and if they all rise up as one
papa’s gonna take you on the run

and if that run ends up in a hole
papa’s gonna give you a little capsule

and if that capsule makes you sick
you’ll hear his silver pistols go click click click

[…fade to a montage of tyrants through the ages…]
