Dan Bern - Revolution Begins in the Basement

Song Lyrics

Too soon baby, too soon, too soon
Too soon baby, too soon, too soon

Some birds are born out of context
Some birds laugh at shame

But Revolution, baby
Revolution Slagtown weavers
Revolution begins in the basement

Kola nuts, baby
Inside outside
Kola nuts Mahatma
Eat me fryin

Some eggs are cold from inception
Some eggs rendevous
But revolution, begins in the basement

Speak to me your best pickup line
Or I ain't going home with you tonight.
Not too soon for the undertaker
Not too soon for the melody maker

24 got his own street
and a bus down the Embarcadero
44 got his own statue
and his very own personal cove
25 gonna have the whole damn town
knocked down and built as a personal shrine

Speak to me your best pickeup line
Or I aint going home with you tonight.
But revolution, baby
Revolution, Hyde Park corner
Revolution, begins in the basement

Revolution, baby
Revolution, Helter Skelter
Revolution, baby
Revolution, bullies up Broad Street
Revolution begins in the basement
Begins in the basement
It begins in the basement
Begins in the basement
(repeats till end)

Notes:
