California Über Alles


Photos of Jerry Brown then and now from The Telegraph

Jerry Brown has been re-elected as Governor of California. The Dead Kennedys song California Über Alles is suddenly relevant again. With all of the problems facing the state of California and the country it may be time to dust off the old master-plan.

Jerry Brown 2012 – Obama power will soon go away – California Über Alles!

California Über Alles

I am Governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles
And never frowns
Soon I will be president…

Carter Power will soon go away
I will be Fuhrer one day
I will command all of you
Your kids will meditate in school
Your kids will meditate in school!

[Chorus:]
California Über Alles
California Über Alles
Über Alles California
Über Alles California

Zen fascists will control you
100% natural
You will jog for the master race
And always wear the happy face

Close your eyes, can’t happen here
Big Bro’ on white horse is near
The hippies won’t come back you say
Mellow out or you will pay
Mellow out or you will pay!

[Chorus]

Now it is 1984
Knock-knock at your front door
It’s the suede/denim secret police
They have come for your uncool niece

Come quietly to the camp
You’d look nice as a drawstring lamp
Don’t you worry, it’s only a shower
For your clothes here’s a pretty flower.

DIE on organic poison gas
Serpent’s egg’s already hatched
You will croak, you little clown
When you mess with President Brown
When you mess with President Brown

[Chorus]

The more things change the more they stay the same…

(tongue firmly implanted in cheek)
