Scritta all'epoca dell'album d'esordio "Generation Terrorists" (1992).
Infatti accompagna il singolo Little Baby Nothing estratto proprio da quel primo lavoro.

Little Baby Nothing

"[...] This particular song is notable mainly for an incredibly dense set of lyrics. The central idea of the song is simple enough – like a number of songs from the period, it works to expose and attack what the band saw as the worst aspects of American culture (greed, insincerity, environmental destruction and historical short-sightedness, mainly).

(Bernart Bartleby)
Bill and Ted and Wayne's World drawl
Just another dull fucking bore
Vietnam's cool now even Superman's believed
Hussein still in power as the media war retreats
Suck your honey until you choke
You are a mechanism of social control
Multi-national aim of a one world culture
Turning one dollar into another and another

Dead Yankee Drawl hey we got your beat
Dead Yankee Drawl hey we love Oscar

Smothering injustice seen through starving eyes
Tearing down forests just to earn a buck
Killed off literature for sex and violence
Feed a generation the equivalent of silence
Dragged Jack down to self same bigotry
Passive acceptance of a consumer society
Fake sentiments tying up contracts
Making idols of guitars and haircuts
Multi-national aim of a one world culture
Turning one dollar into another and another

Dead Yankee Drawl hey we got your beat
Dead Yankee Drawl hey we love Oscar

Smothering injustice seen through Red Indian Eyes
Silent race war of Hollywood lies
Lets go down to Greenwich Village and desecrate
The Noraid slogans that justify 6 counties hate
Lets go down Redondo beach and wax body company
Cos reality for T.V. is Disney not King, Rodney
Lets go down to Indiana Youth Centre quickly
Tyson's money ain't as free as Junior Kennedy's
Dead Yankee Dead Yankee Dead Yankee Drawl.
