Testo di Stephen L.Suffet
Sull'aria di "Slip Knot" di Woody Guthrie

Lyrics and Music by Stephen L.Suffet
To the tune of "Slip Knot" by Woody Guthrie

From: http://polsong.gcal.ac.uk/songs/suffet.html

"The new words were written in 2003 after the U.S. government officials advised people to stock up on duct tape as the war in Iraq seemed imminent. They were to use the tape to seal windows and doors in the event of a chemical or biological attack. The parody is based on Woody Guthrie'a song Slip Knot, written in the 1940s on the subject of lynching."
If you're worried about Osama,
Go get duct tape!
If you're angry with your mama,
Buy some duct tape!
If your lover treats you bad,
And you're ticked off with your dad,
And the world just makes you mad,
You need duct tape.

If you're running out of cash,
Go get duct tape!
And your roommate stole your stash,
Buy some duct tape!
If your Bronco guzzles gas,
And and your house is made of glass,
Don't be a horse's ass,
You need duct tape!

If the market keeps on tumbling,
Go get duct tape!
And your pension plan starts crumbling,
Buy some duct tape!
If the Dow is on a slide,
And you're info ain't inside,
You've been taken for a ride,
You need duct tape!

If you can't get decent health care,
Go get duct tape!
And there's poison in the air,
Buy some duct tape!
If there's arsenic in the water,
And they take your son and daughter,
And lead them off to slaughter,
You need duct tape!

If they steal the last election,
Go get duct tape,
And they tell you for protection,
Buy some duct tape!
And they're sowing mass confusion,
With their war and retribution,
As they rip the Constitution,
You need duct tape!

If their lies you would not hear,
Go get duct tape!
And you would not live in fear,
Buy some duct tape!
Their shit they could not sell,
If we wrap them all up well,
And damn them all to Hell,
With their duct tape!

No, their shit they could not sell,
If we wrap them all up well,
And damn them all to Hell,
With their duct tape!
