The OWS Camptown Ladies

Timothy Birdnow

I banged out this little ditty to the tune of Camptown Races, with apologies to Stephan Foster:

The camptown ladies sing this song
doo-dah, doo-dah
it's getting cold and I've lost my bong
oh-da-doo-dah-day!

Gonna protest all night,
gonna protest all day
I got no money, I'm a leftist hag
and the bourgeois pigs will pay!

The long-haired hippies treat me like a whore
doo-dah, doo-dah
They're all worked up by Michael Moore
Oh-da-doo-dah-day!

Gonna protest all night,
gonna protest all day
I got no money, I'm a leftist hag
and the bourgeois pigs will pay!

We've got no showers or t.v.
doo-dah, doo-dah
But we do have crabs and some t.b.
oh-the-doo-dah-day!

Gonna protest all night,
gonna protest all day
I got no money, I'm a leftist hag
and the bourgeois pigs will pay!

We stink, we're loud, and quite irate
doo-dah, doo-dah
we all demand a Marxist state!
oh-da-do-dah-day!

Gonna protest all night,
gonna protest all day
I got no money, I'm a leftist hag
and the bourgeois pigs will pay!

We have no money to pay the rent
doo-dah, doo-dah
so we hang out here inside a tent
oh-da-do-dah-day!

we'd rather live here like some slobs
doo-dah, doo-dah
then waste our time on real jobs
oh-da-do-dah-day!

We only want what we deem fair
doo-dah, doo-dah
free food and schools and free healthcare
oh-da-do-dah-day!!

so we hang around and smoke our dope
doo-dah, doo-dah
though desperately we need some soap
oh-da-do-dah-day

we're going to riot and roads block
doo-dah, doo-dah
all for our hero named Barack
oh-da-do-da-day

Gonna protest all night,
gonna protest all day
I got no money, I'm a leftist hag
and the bourgeois pigs will pay!
