GET REAL

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


              I.  to all of you who burn the flag
                  and praise all that is a drag,
                  who in work shirts, jeans and boots
                  do magnify them molehill disputes,
                  who came to college to spread the grand illusion,
                  to manufacture class struggles
                  as a cause for revolution...

             II.  with faces red and eyes aflame,
                  you do your own thing in the people's name.
                  yes, you're the enemy, and though not always bad,
                  your lies contain no more truth
                  than the establishment's did.

      REFRAIN A:  did you ever wonder why all the refugees go south?
                  why noone tries to get in East Berlin?
                  man, they're always tryin' to get out!

             III. you moan about dear Angela.
                  what about those dissenters in Siberia?
                  they never hurt anyone.
                  they never even bought a gun.

             IV.  we threw Calley into jail.
                  when we learned all the bloody details.
                  but those who executed three thousand up at Hue,
                  you know for sure that they will never pay.

      REFRAIN B:  if I had a year, I would tell you how I feel.
                  but I only have a day, so I'll say,
                  man, you better get real!

                  (repeat first verse)
