The Pope Smokes Dope

David Peel


Come Hippie From Olema, una parodia/risposta (in questo caso nello stile di David Peel sarcastica e estremista) alla canzone Okie from Muskogee, classico country "reazionario" di Merle Haggard. David Peel la cantò anche in televisione, accompagnato dall'amico John Lennon e da Yoko Ono, produttori del suo terzo disco.
I’m proud to be a New York City hippie
I’m proud of dirty feet and dirty hair.
I’m proud of living with the cock-a-roaches
I’m proud of living in a garbage can.

I’m proud to be a New York City hippie
I’m proud of dirty feet and dirty hair.
I’m proud of living with the cock-a-roaches
I’m proud of living in a garbage can.

We like tripping smoking marijuana
we like turning rednecks on to junk
we are just a bunch of crazy hippies
you were always dumb and ignorant!!

We won't fight your wars or join your army
we don't like you country western hicks
all you do is ball your cows and chickens
animals like you are full of shit!!

I’m proud to be a New York City hippie
I’m proud of dirty feet and dirty hair.
I’m proud of living with the cock-a-roaches
I’m proud of living in a garbage can.

We hate to go to work - we live on welfare
we have our love and always have a ball
we hate your barnyard dances and your moonshine
we like to have you up against the wall!!!

We want to warn you squares and all you rednecks:
If you hate the hippies from New York,
We’ll unify the hippies from the country
We’ll fight until the South becomes the North.

I’m proud to be a New York City hippie
I’m proud of dirty feet and dirty hair.
I’m proud of living with the cock-a-roaches
I’m proud of living in a garbage can.

I’m proud to be a New York City hippie
I’m proud of dirty feet and dirty hair.
I’m proud of living with the cock-a-roaches
I’m proud of living in a garbage can
I’m proud of living in a garbage can.

We're the hippies
the hippies from New York!!!

Nella versione cantata dal vivo ci sono delle strofe diverse ma l'unica di cui ho trovato la trascrizione è questa
We Hate the War We'll never join the Army
we hate the way you have your Politics
we hate the way you always think of money
Someday We'll change the minds of Squares and Hicks
