paul kantner – mau mau (amerikon) lyrics


by paul kantner, grace slick, joey covington

put your old ladies back into bed

your old men back into their graves

cover their ears so they can’t hear us sing

cover their eyes so that can’t see us play

get out of the way

let the people play

we’re gonna get down on you

come alive all over you

dancin’ down into your town

tyrannosaurus rex was destroyed before

by a furry little ball that crawled along

the primeval jungle floor

and he stole the eggs of the dinosaur

close your eyes & create the sound

open your hands & rebuild the ground

we are egg sn-tchers –

flashin’ sunshine children

diamond thieves

you unlease the dogs

of a grade-b movie star governor’s war

while you sit in the dark –

insane with the fear of dying

we’ll ball in your parks

– insane with the flash of living

i am alive

i am human

i will be alive again

so drop your f-ckin’ bombs

burn your demon babies

i will be again –

the rabid lover-feelin’ the starch in your grin

callin’ for acid cocaine and gr-ss

and receiving your homemade gin

push the b-tton

pull the switch

cut the beam

c’mon make it march

sign me up as a diplomat – my only office is the park

you need to be out before you come in

and after you come you go

in the midst of yang is a smaller part of yin

and when it happens you know –

the dawn comes

hey d-ck

whatever you think of us is totally irrelevant

both to us now and to you

we are the present

we are the future

you are the past

pay your dues and get outta the way

’cause we’re not the way you used to be

when you were very young

we’re something new

we don’t quite know what it is

or particularly care

we just do it – you gotta do it

open your eyes there’s a new world a-comin’

open your eyes there’s a new world today

open your hearts people are lovin’

open it all we’re here to stay

open that door
