lyrics

It's automatic: pull the lever once again.
It's democratic, and also republican.
It's automatic: pull the lever again.
Small-d democratic, lowercase republican.
As goat follows goat up to the hooded bloke's stump,
So vote follows vote off the buffalo jump.
And the chosen bull sleeps with the matador
And the sheep kiss the creeps in their own abattoir

Fuck your republic, with its rah-rah-rah battle hymns,
I want an olympic god throwing thunderbolt javelins
I'll vote against the vote and I'll rant for the antonym
Let's go Fascist! Monarch! or Monotheistic!

If our queen is charitable, she'll give cake to each
of her subjects.
And even if she isn't kind, I don't think that I'll
mind.
Which is worse: oppression or mass suicide?

Fuck your republic, with its rah-rah-rah battle hymns,
I want an olympic god throwing thunderbolt javelins
I'll vote against the vote and I'll rant for the antonym
Let's go Fascist! Monarch! or Monotheistic!
