My mother got brainwashed by the communists,
The reds, they got inside her head.
I fear it is too late, she is a Manchurian Candidate.
She's going to kill the president.

She started to listen to folk music,
And hang out in coffee shops and all.
She has an album by The Weavers,
And a Che Guevara picture on her wall.

She used to wear red lipstick,
She used to wear red shoes.
But now she just sings Leadbetter's,
Washington DC blues.

She used to enjoy her cooking,
Her garden was the envy of all.
But now it's all Marx and Lenin,
And no Ringo, George or Paul.

My daddy upped and left her,
Since she became a red.
She claimed her feminist rights extended to the nights,
And she throwed poor daddy out of bed.
