Repeat After Me

By on Saturday 19th May, 2012

Go to work, don’t skip school
Follow fashion, act cool
Drive a car, watch TV
Obey the law and spend money
Raise your children just the same
Give them all the same name
And above all repeat after me (two, three)

I am free
I am free
I am free
I am free
I am free
I am free
To be a zombie

Be on time wear a suit
Be polite, smile cute
Do your work the proper way
Be creative get paid
Find a hobbie after work
Go to club act like a jerk
This formula comes with a guarantee
(After me)

I am free…
…To sit and watch TV

Men like pussy, girls like dick
Fat is ugly, thin is fit
Fuck your lover hug your friend
Great things last, crap things end
People good, people bad
Some are modern some are trad
This is foreign that is ours
Get a morgage rent a house
Mow the lawn kill the mouse
Wake at dawn sleep at night
Go and travel see the sights
These values preserve the peace

I am free…
…To get microchip ID
