Dead Kennedys – A Commercial lyrics

Have we got a telethon for you coming soon on mtv! A rockin' bankroll
Extravaganza featuring all your vigilante rock stars! Sammy
HagarЎ­sylvester stalloneЎ­clint eastwood. It's so important we've even
Exhumed the bodies of lynyrd skynyrd! This ain't no sissy concert to raise
Food for the needy; this concerts whipped up the american way to raise
Money for guns for the greedy! So stay tuned and dig in those heels
ForЎ­usa for south africa!

It's usa for south africa 'cause those poor, s**-starved riot battalions
Need more machine guns, more tear gas, more nerve gas, more electric
Fences for those prison camps they call "homelands." and who's going to
Give it to them? We are! Every one of us! Everytime we go to the bank.
Everytime we buy food at theftway. Or those fancy chrome wheels for your
Hot car. It's usa for south africa!

Don't delay! Apartheid is a big business! What would these american ladies
Do without those diamonds? You heard the white houseЎ­don't miss it! Have
You're rich parents' money ready, world hunger's gone forever once your
Check's in the mail when mtv and the rock and racism connection bring you
Live, from sun city, usa for south africa!
