[1992]
Album “Mondo Bizarro”
Scritta dal compianto Joey Ramone

Mondo Bizarro cover

Una Canzone – la prima dei mitici Ramones su questo sito – Contro la Guerra… alla libertà di espressione.
La Tipper cui Joey si rivolge altri non è che Tipper Gore che, fino al 1992, anno dell’ascesa del marito Al alla vicepresidenza degli States, ha guidato il Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC), organizzazione delle mogli degli altolocati benpensanti americani dedita ad apporre sui dischi di Ramones, Ozzy Osbourne, Frank Zappa, Dead Kennedys e centinaia di altri artisti l’apposito bollino “Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics” (o “Explicit Contents”)…
Ma perché, si chiedeva il buon Joey, le mogli dei senatori si impicciano di ‘ste puttanate invece di occuparsi dei veri problemi, come l’inquinamento, i senzatetto, la disoccupazione e i dissesti delle società finanziarie (in cui spesso sono coinvolti i rispettivi consorti) ?!?
Tipper, what's that sticker sticking on my CD?
Is that some kind of warning to protect me?
Freedom of choice needs a stronger, stronger voice.
You can stamp out the source, but you
can't stop creative thoughts.

Ah, Tipper come on, ain't you been getting it on?
Ask Ozzie, Zappa or me.
We'll show you what it's like to be free.

Ah, Tipper come on, it's just a smoke
screen for the real problems.
S&L deficit, the homeless, the environment.

Hey, hey all you senators wives.
Better take a good look at your
own lives.
Before you go preaching to me.
You're definitions of obscenity.

Ah, Tipper come on, ain't you been getting it on?
Ask Ozzie, Zappa or me.
We'll show you what it's like to be free.

The irony it semes it seems to me
it's un-American policy.
Yeah, we'e come so far but still only to
find people like you with ignorant minds.

Ah, Tipper come on, ain't you been getting it on?
Ask Ozzie, Zappa or me.
We'll show you what it's like to be free.

Ah, Tipper come on, it's just a smoke
screen for the real problems.
S&L deficit, the homeless, the environment
