Ballad of Neoconservatism The people referenced in
this song are Irving Kristol, Gertrude Himmelfarb, Norman Podhoretz and
Midge Decter; considered to be the "grandparents" of neo-conservatism;
their kids grew up to be cheerleaders for World War III, (or is it World
War IV?) (Sung to the tune of "For What It's Worth" by Buffalo Springfield)
Guest song parody byJoe
Bilger (instrumental intro)
Irving had a malady
He got mugged by reality.
Pressed charges and proceeded to sue.
Gertrude was worryin'
She was a victorian historian
The swabbies had nothin' to do
Norman was fakin' it
He was workin' hard to be makin' it
Not for the many but the few
Midge came from Minnesota
To do away with the quota
Canceled on the 60's in 1962
There once was a dream
On two sides of a stream
But somebody blew up the bridge
It was Irving and Gertrude, Norman and Midge
