(VIDEO) Oingo Boingo: Capitalism from 1981's Oingo Boingo Debut, "Only a Lad"

By the Left Coast Rebel 

Danny Elfman is a genius. Listen closely:

I'm so tired of hearing you whine
About the revolution
Bringin' down the rich
When was the last time you dug a ditch, baby!

You're just a middle class, socialist brat
From a suburban family and you never really had to work
And you tell me that we've got to get back
To the struggling masses (whoever they are)
You talk, talk, talk about suffering and pain
Your mouth is bigger than your entire brain
What the hell do you know about suffering and pain . . .

Hat-tip WC Varones
