The Degenerate Song © 1975 Rick Garvin
Oh, degenerates live among us today,
It’s the number one national problem in the USA
Well, bolt all your windows and lock up your kids and
pray that they never get a single wish
Cause degenerates live among us today
1. Well, I was out driving late last night
when a bunch of young hoodlums shone a flashlight
So I stopped the car to see what they had to say.
They put soap on my windows and sugar in my gas
and if that weren’t enough, then they kicked me in the rear
Oh degenerates live among us today.
2. Well, I was out walking out in the dark
Late one night down in central park
Just listening to the birds, and taking some time to pray
Well there in the gloom a fella jumped out
and he flashed his raincoat and let out with a shout
And then he was gone, before I could even say
3. So, parents of today’s American youth
prepare to hear the gospel truth and
think about your kids when they’re out to play
We can stop ‘ em smoking, and stop ‘em sniffing
and get ‘em all high on beer and preaching
and shoot ‘em only if there’s no other way.
