Saint Mediocretes of Pedestrium

Gang of Four
"The History of the World"
[ from Songs of the Free. ]

When I was in my mother's womb
Social structure seemed a simple thing
After birth I cursed my luck
Then went down to breakfast

What I know fills me up
It is an everlasting cup
What I believe will never change
My consolation for the night

Mother had me for an egg
I understood the relations of production
She always provided for me
That's where I lost my naievty

Stability is in my mind
I associate with my kind
Charity, it fills my heart
To help the poor in Africa

Good, yes, you've done well
Here is a small prize
The history of the world
