MC5 FRED SONIC SMITH: PEOPLE TALKIN ABOUT SOLUTIONS: OVER & OVER


Michael Fred and Dennis @West Park Ann Arbor

The melody is soft and lilting in direct contrast with the lyrics

When we recorded this song I remember how smooth the track went in the session. The vocals were done another time and Rob told me later how difficult it was for him to get that down pat. Over all one our best efforts.. D



People talkin 'bout solutions, over and over
'Bout how we need a revolution, over and over
I was talking 'bout ecology, over and over
'Bout how we'll be saved by technology, over and over
While the cat next door spends all his time
Trying to think up new antisocial crimes
I said no, I said hang on a minute now
I set let me outta here
I said no, no, no
People talking revolution, over and over
About a mass execution, over and over
Well I was working in a factory, over and over
Just trying to make it satisfactory, over and over
But all these inclinations toward manic frustration
I want my vaccination against castration
Vietnam, what a sexy war
Uncle Sam's a pimp, wants us to be whores,
I said no, I said I can't take much more of this
You better let me outta here
I said no, no, no
Oh you see I need a release for my frustration
Oh don't you see I can't hold my aggravation
Oh...no, no, no, no
I see people dyin', over and over
Why don't I sit around crying, over and over
I see people taking, over and over
Why don't I sit around waiting, over and over
The cop on the street wants us down on our knees
The president says we've got to have peace
The other cat says we need our liberation
The hippies telling us we're in the love generation
I said whoa, I said hang on a minute now
This can't go on much longer
I said whoa, whoa, whoa
Over and over, over and over
Over and over, over and over
Songwriters; Fred Sonic Smith
