There’s cowshit in the rivers, bacillus in the whey
All kinds of dreadful problems besetting us today
But the gov’ment does take action if a threat becomes too big
That’s why they won’t let David Rovics in to play his gig

Chorus:

David Rovics is an international terrorist of sorts
Armed with a steel strung guitar and a bunch of leftist thoughts
He don’t keep those thoughts hidden, just sings them right out loud
That’s considered not nice manners in the land of the long white cloud

Things are pretty quiet right now in Aotearoa
The revolution seems about as present as the moa
But the bourgeoisie remember just one spark may start a flame
who knows but some folk singer might just be the one to blame

Repeat chorus: David Rovics is an international terrorist of sorts etc

Just imagine what might happen if they let in this chap
He might corrupt our teenagers and teach them how to rap
When wandring though our cities some by-laws he might flout
best to take no chances and just keep the bugger out

Repeat chorus: David Rovics is an international terrorist of sorts etc

So here’s to Michael Woodhouse and the parliamentary mob
They may root the environment and deny you a job
But although we’re poor and spied on, chalk up one thing for these pricks
At least they kept the country safe from dreaded Dave Rovics

Repeat chorus: David Rovics is an international terrorist of sorts etc
