Dictators` Dance
on: December 29, 2020, 18:29:33
This is a tongue-in-cheek offering from Spirit Level (two Canuks, an Ozzie and various other contributors) the folk/psychedelic collaboration I`ve been having fun with for a few years.
The write came from  the first line followed by finding a library book with pictures of the worst/best opulent excess of the nastiest leaders
from history.

As with all our songs the recording,mixing & mastering goes back & forth  and reaches a point of agreement; your listens and thoughts on improvables are welcome.



 
     Dictators Dance

Napoleon hides his hand in his shirt
Vladimir plotting behind a smirk
Sadam Hussein munching Doritos
Mussolini chats up Pol Pot and Tito

big it up with gold go mad for marble
a myth size mirror let music sparkle
take your partners in the palace of pain
dictator`s dancing round my brain
coup coup coming for you

Noriega cuts the rug with the CIA
Imelda`s new shoes get in the way
the fuhrer can`t lead if you won`t follow
that Vienneses waltz is hard to swallow

big it up with gold go mad for marble
a myth size mirror let music sparkle
coup coup coming for you
take your partners in the palace of pain
dictator`s dancing round my brain
coup coup coming for you

lifestyles of the kitsch and famous
we are revolting who can blame us
pigs are taking over the farm
up on two legs with style and charm

big it up with gold go mad for marble
a myth size mirror let music sparkle
coup coup coming for you
take your partners in the palace of pain
dictator`s dancing round my brain
coup coup coming for you

Edward 8th or Pinochet
Salazar and Ceaucescu you say
Tito, Assad and Idi Amin 
Gaddafi or Jackson in his day

Duvalier or Kim Jong Un
Stalin, Rhee or Mao ZeDong
Leopold & Nicholas the twos 
DJT and Xiaoping it's true

MBS or Lukashenko
Musharraf and Louise fourteen
Il Papa, Bolkiah and Franco
Bainimarama,now Duterte comes clean
