Song Lyrics:
Uhh....Uhhh....This next song is a protest song.
Uh, I've suffered for my music
Now it's your turn

All the prophets of doom
Can always find room
In a world full of worry and fear
Tip cigarettes and chemistry sets
And Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer
So I'm goin' back to my little old shack
And drink me a bottle of wine
That was mis en bouteille
Before my birthday
And have me a fantastic time

Rain on a tin roof sounds like a drum
We're marchin' for freedom today
Turn on your headlights and sound your horn
If people get in the way

Let me turn you on to the chromium swan
On the nose of a long limousine
Even hired for the day, it is something to say
But, what the hehllll does it mean?
I may be accused of bein' confused
But I'm average weight for my height
My philosophy, like color TV
Is all there in black and white

RAI!..Rain on a tin roof sounds like a drum
We're marchin' for freedom today..Hey!
Turn on your headlights and sound your horn
If people get in the way
