Alabama 3 – Bourgeoisie Blues lyrics

Temptation

Comrades, people of the world
We ain't got nothing to lose
Got them Bourgeoisie Blues

Mr. Iv Lenin, Lenin of love
Gonna make us feel so fine
With a hit of socialism in the mainline

Bourgeois Parlimentarianism
The highest state of society
Third world debt, first world exploitation

What a society we're livin' in
Sellin' third world drugs at first world prices
They say Lenin was wrong, who says?
It's enough to give me the fucking blues

I know you're searching for some new sensation
'Coz I saw you with the sugar man
You took a taste of that sweet salvation
Now you're eatin' out the palm of his hand

You hear some line from a song that reminds you
Of a time when you were seventeen
The memory moves ya but ya feel kinda confused
'Coz now money is your melody

Looks like temptation's got a hold on you
She's eatin' away at your dreams
You're so hungry for that smell of money
You been wastin' away for years

Yeah, you've been tempted, brother
You been tempted, sister, too

Here you were hustlin' with some heavy connections
Hooked up on those dollars and dimes
You were looking for thrills and dressed up to kill
Any motherfucker messin' with your goldmine

Now you walk the line tryin to buy yourself time
You want a honey backed guarantee
But the bees they are buzzin' and the flies they are hummin'
Round the holes in your hypocrisy

Looks like temptation's got a hold on you
She's eatin' away at your dreams
You're so hungry for that smell of money
You been wastin' away for years

What do we want?
(Something about government)
And what kinda power?
Soviet power, it's enough to give me the fucking blues

Socialism, straight in the mainline
See you're wasting away now

Socialism, straight in the mainline
See you're wasting away now

Socialism, straight in the mainline
See you're wasting away now
...
