HOKEY POKEY REDUX

(something to chant next Saturday at the protest in New York City!)

You sent inspectors in
You pulled inspectors out
Now more inspectors in
and you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
that's what its all about (clap clap)

You put sanctions in
You take the children out
You put sanctions in
and you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
that's what its all about (clap clap)

Homeland Security's in
Civil Rights are out
Homeland Security's in
and you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
that's what its all about (clap clap)

You put Empire in
You take democracy out
You put Empire in
and you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
that's what its all about (clap clap)

You put fear in
Take human rights out
You put fear in
and you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
that's what its all about (clap clap)

You put New Europe in
You take Old Europe out
Call it a coalition
and you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
that's what its all about (clap clap)

You'll put bombs in
You'll take the oil out
You'll put bombs in
and you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
that's what its all about (clap clap)

We want justice and peace
Now the people are out
We're gonna stay in the streets
and we'll shake things all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
that's what its all about (clap clap)
