Now if an order was to come down
From the Pope
The Catholics ain't allowed
To smoke no dope
If they couldn't get high
Would they feel real low
Would they get pissed off
Down in Mexico

And If Mayor John Lindsey
Was to propose
The old Calcutta show
Had to wear clothes
Would they still come
All the way from Kokomo
Just to dig the show

What if Eldridge Cleaver
Was to devise a plan
For the Black Panther Party of America
To be merged with the Ku Klux Klan

If Richard Nixon made Spiro Agnew
The new ambassador to Timbuktu
If he was doing real well
Would you guess it would
Prove his relationship with cbs

What if Lester Maddox was to pass a law
That the black population of Georgia
Had to be moved into Arkansas
Would it make Orval Faubus sore
And start a two-state civil war
Would they ask the government for Federal aid, to buy
Pickaxe handles and razor blades

Bop, bop, bop, bop, rodeo dope

Now if Martha Mitchell was to address
A special meeting of the sds
If she told them her views on Vietnam
Would they make her
An honorary minuteman

And if Governer Wallace
Was to come unglued
And run for President in 72
Could he carry
All of the southern states
With Julian Bond for a running mate

Now if the cia and the irs and the fcc
Found out that J Edgar Hoover and
The fbi owned stock in at&T
And the uaw and the bno and the afl
And the cio and the icc and the bbd
And the lsu and ucla and the oeo
And the kkk and the pta and the lna
And the upi and the ibm, all bs
