Sunday Samples 331

June 9, 2013

After seeing Wish You Were Here, there’s an obvious song I just have to throw out there as another Sample, which also brings me back up to my original schedule. No, not that one. I’m talking about the Dead Kennedys’ “Holiday in Cambodia”!

So you been to school for a year or two
And you know you’ve seen it all
In Daddy’s car thinking you’ll go far
Back east your type don’t crawl

Play ethnicky jazz to parade your snazz
Showing off your stereo
Bragging that you know how the niggers feel cold
And the slum’s got so much soul

It’s time to taste what you most fear
Right Guard will not help you here
Brace yourself, my dear
Brace yourself, my dear

It’s a holiday in Cambodia
It’s tough, kid, but it’s life
It’s a holiday in Cambodia
Don’t forget to pack a wife

You’re a star-belly sneetch, you suck like a leech
You want everyone to act like you
Kiss ass while you bitch so you can get rich
But your boss gets richer off you

Well, you’ll work harder with a gun in your back
For a bowl of rice a day
Slave for soldiers ’til you starve
Then your head is skewered on a stake

Now you can go where people are one
Now you can go where they get things done
What you need, my son
What you need, my son

Is a holiday in Cambodia
Where people dress in black
Need a holiday in Cambodia
Where you’ll kiss ass or crack

Pol Pot, Pol Pot
Pol Pot, Pol Pot
Pol Pot, Pol Pot

Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot
Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot
Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot
Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot

It’s a holiday in Cambodia
Where you’ll do what you’re told
A holiday in Cambodia
Where the slum’s got so much soul

Pol Pot
