cetmst Songs In/About Carolinas (53* d) Lyr Add: JESSE HELMS HAS MADE A RADICAL OUT OF ME 03 Sep 15


This obviously belongs in another thread but I included it here for its Carolina connection before I listened to it for the first time in many years. Also I have missed a number of words from my transcription'
JESSE HELMS HAS MADE A RADICAL OUT OF ME - Laura Wetzler
Chorus:
Jesse Helms has made a radical out of me   
Makes me want to take of my clothes and shout from the highest tree,
Makes me want to march on Wall Street in my BVD's
Jesse Helms has made a radical out of me.   

I used to teach in Sunday School; I tellered in a bank,
Now a (sexy) photograph is a kind of a sexual prank.

Chorus

I used to (____) discretely,
Now I want to make a collage of my lacy underthings

Chorus

He (_____) with a bankroll, legislating lies
Makes me want to moon my friends across the midnight skies

Chorus

I used to be so proper, I used to be so staid,
Now I want to do the wild thing in the middle of the parade.

Chorus

He'd cover every body, he'd fig-leaf every nude,
(____) was gay wouldn't be safe from the creepy dude.

Chorus

Don't tell me what I can look at, don't tell me what I can (see)
Don't tell me to hide my realities under your cigarette butt.

Chorus

Don't (____) your genitalia, hang the picture on the wall
Fax your copy to the 88 and give Resist a call

Chorus                  

Hope someone can fill in the blanks
