lyrics

Have you heard?
Have you heard, good people like us are being outbred
And pretty soon
Pretty soon, maybe in a couple decades, our way of life will be dead

But some elitist with a PhD
Says that he disagrees
Values in society
Independent of ethnicity
...Well I've heard enough, it's always the same with these guys, I'm thinking

Where's the common sense with all these high-falutin'
Self-righteous intelligentsia?
What we need's a stronger leader
To show them to the killing fields

Have you heard
Have you heard of the healing powers of dandelion tea?
Somebody drank it
Some friend of a friend of a hippie drank it, and now they're cancer-free

But some phoney with a PhD
Peddling chemotherapy
Some advance in technology
Fluoridation and vaccines
...Well I've had it up to here with these conspiratorial quacks, I'm thinking

Where's the common sense with all these high-falutin'
Self-righteous intelligentsia?
What we need's a stronger leader
To show them to the killing fields

Teachers
Need more common sense
Doctors
Need more common sense
Lawyers
Need more common sense
Authors
Need more common sense
Physicists
Need more common sense
Biologists
Need more common sense
Sociologists
Need more common sense
Climatologists
Need more common sense
