Sunnuntaiklassikko, open up the pearly gates

Sunnuntaiklassikko valitaan Woodstock-1969in muistoksi pääasiassa ulkomusiikillisista ansioistaan.

Monista merkittävistä esityksistä olen aina nostanut ykköseksi tämän joka musiikillisesti on lähinnä RALLATUS eikä sävelkään ole kovin omaperäinen.

Intro Spoken
Give me an "F! ..."F"! give me a "U"! ..."U"!
Give me a "C"! ..."C" Give me a "K"! ..."K"!

Well come on all of you big strong men, Uncle Sam needs your help again,
he got himself in a terrible jam, way down yonder in Vietnam,
put down your books and pick up a gun, we're gunna have a whole lotta fun.

and its 1,2,3 what are we fightin for?
don't ask me i don't give a dam, the next stop is Vietnam,
and its 5,6,7 open up the pearly gates. Well there aint no time to wonder why...WHOPEE we're all gunna die.

now come on wall street don't be slow, why man this's war a-go-go,
there's plenty good money to be made, supplyin' the army with the tools of the trade,
just hope and pray that when they drop the bomb, they drop it on the Vietcong.


now come on generals lets move fast, your big chance is here at last.
nite you go out and get those reds cuz the only good commie is one thats dead,
you know that peace can only be won, when you blow em all to kingdom come.

(spoken)- listen people i dont know you expect to ever stop the war if you cant sing any better than that... theres about 300,000 of you fuc|ers out there.. i want you to start singing..


now come on mothers throughout the land, pack your boys off to vietnam,
come on fathers don't hesitate, send your sons off before its too late,
be the first one on your block, to have your boy come home in a box


Alrite !!!!!!!

P.S. Edellisen postauksen kommenteissa Lepis epäili sitä että voiko kuulua hippisukupolveen jos on ollut 10-vuotias vuonna 1969, ilman muuta - silloin on vain jälkihippi :)

Todisteeksi kuva meikäläisestä vuodelta 1975, eli heti aloitettiin viikonloppuhippeily kun äiti antoi luvan ja kynnelle kyettiin. (Jos löydän, laitan kuvan myös vuodelta 1969 myöhemmin)
