lyrics

Poison Tea
Words and lyrics © 2014 Thomas Hauck / Olex Music

Sara came from the land of snow
Preaching guns and butter
Let’s turn back the clock she said
I like the past much better

Everything was simple then
The rules were plain to see
I got mine and you got yours
There was no inequality

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Lies all lies
Are what she says to me
I won’t eat her bitter bread
Or drink her poison tea

Teddy rode a longhorn steer
Charging and a buckin’
With a Facebook friend in Jesus
And a copy of the Constitution

I like men in powdered wigs
Says Teddy with a drawl
Cause they’re all dead and buried
They can’t argue back at all

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Lies all lies
Are what he says to me
I won’t eat his bitter bread
Or drink his poison tea

Dave and Charlie count their cash
They love that legal tender
They’ve got hatred in their hearts
For the people’s strange new leader

He / ain’t like us they whisper loud
While giving bags of gold
To back room boys who load their guns
Against imagined foes

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Lies all lies
Are what they say to me
I won’t eat their bitter bread
Or drink their poison tea

In the halls of Washington
And on Main Street USA
They spread their paranoia
Like it’s nineteen fifty eight

They preach against their enemies
Who come from distant shores
With loaded guns they’re waiting
For the knock upon the door

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Lies all lies
Are what they say to me
I won’t eat their bitter bread
Or drink their poison tea
