Beastie Boys – This Government Needs A Tune Up lyrics

Get with it
Get with it
Get with it
Got beats that are boomin to keep the crowd movin
Cause this administration needs some removin
Since 9/11 got war on the brain
This us Nation needs show restraint

Oh no way, what's that you say?
The un don't mean nothin to the usa?
Oh no way, what's that you heard?
Bush is makin money off of the oil, word?

Never ending government spendin
All for weapons of war they keep on spendin more
Trouble believing, all this deceiving
Is it really freedom that we're fighting for?

This Government Needs a Tune Up
This Government Needs a Tune Up
This Government Needs a Tune Up
This Government Needs a Tune Up

Imagine public healthcare, public housing,
Public help without the religious founding
Imagine that, well it could happen yet
And we can make it happen, it's a bet

Now I'm not trying to say I hate the usa
I'd live somewhere else if I felt that way
But go back to the fifty's, if you think it's all nifty
This president is acting mad shifty

Fbi and the cops keep all filing
Who protest the war and who their dialing
So be careful what you say up on the internet
We got a nosey government that won't forget

This Government Needs a Tune Up
This Government Needs a Tune Up
This Government Needs a Tune Up
This Government Needs a Tune Up
This Government Needs a Tune Up
This Government Needs a Tune Up

Need a little democratic socialism
Eassssse up on the capitalism
Eassssse up on the militarism
Ease up on the campaign finance schism

The next thing they'll want is abortion deaded
If you're not straight, white and married it's dreaded
Forget it, you know what they say, if you're gay
You're not a real member of society

If you're with me say, "What is this?"
Our government's being run by big business
Wrecking shop, so, lets fix this
Come on somebody and get with this

This Government Needs a Tune Up
This Government Needs a Tune Up
This Government Needs a Tune Up
This Government Needs a Tune Up
Get with it
Get with it
Get with it
Get with it
Get with it
