Yo George

Isabel

Lyrics by Tori Amos

I salute to you Commander
and I sneeze
cause I have now
an allergy
To your policies it seems

Where have we gone wrong America?
Mr. Lincoln we can't seem
to find you anywhere out of the millions
From the deserts
To the mountains
Over prairies
To the shores
Is this just the madness of King George
Yo George
Is this just the madness of King George
Yo George
Well you have the whole nation
on all fours


Tori Quotes

Like many Americans, she is staunchly patriotic. Her leanings towards the left are well publicised.

I was very vocal with the song "Yo George." The lyric went: "Is this just the madness of King George / Yo George / Well you have the whole nation on all fours." I paid a price for that. And yet, I stand by it every step of the way. I got blackballed on some levels. People wouldn't carry the work here and there -- it's not good to give names, because they might be coming in on this record and I'm a fucking hooker, so I have to take what I can get.
