YOU MAY BE A SOCIALIST  (Written by Winston Apple)

Uncle Miltie and the Chicago Boys have a very broad definition of socialism
When Uncle Sam plays Robin Hood
Taking taxes from the rich to try to do something good for those in need
Pushing a New Deal or a Great Society
He is a socialist and you may be one too  

If you support public schools or the minimum wage (You may be a socialist)
If you want Social Security when you reach retirement age 
(You may be a socialist)
If you are in favor of Medicare or Medicaid (You may be a socialist)
And that's not what they want you to be

If you shrug when you read Atlas Shrugged (You may be a socialist)
If you disagree with sweeping pollution under the rug (You may be a socialist)
If you believe that poor, sick children should get medical care and drugs 
(You may be a socialist)  And that is not what they want you to be

Greed is great!  Greed is good!
If you don't believe that, maybe you should take a long, hard look at yourself
Call up the Shock Doctors and get some help

If you believe in putting people ahead of profits (You may be a socialist)
Or saving endangered species or protecting the environment 
(You may be a socialist)
If you belong to a union or support them in any way (You may be a socialist)
And that's not what they want you to be

If the Chicago Boys ever get their way, all of these government programs will fade away 
Wall Street gamblers will be free to play their games without referees
That might be bad news for the little people, people like you and me
But we don't really matter, as long as we may be socialists 
(And it seems we very well may be)
I may be a socialist
You may be a socialist
He may be a socialist
She may be a socialist
We all may be socialists 
(Yes, we all may be socialists)
And that's not such a bad thing to be
No, that's not such a bad thing to be
That's not such a bad thing to be
