lyrics

No Liberation Here (1976)

I am feelin' like I need some abuse
Throw me 'round the room
Let me be misused
I don't feel right
No Liberation here

Rub my nose in doggie's duty today
Please embarrass me so I'll be ashamed
I cannot be proud
No liberation here

I have close to no pride
Which way?
Where is the bathroom?
I will do my duty
Where's the disease infested toilet seat that I can plunge in deep?
Bury me head and face in crappy toilet water in shit

Let me kiss the one with bad breath that reeks
Let my tongue caress the rotted brown teeth
I can't walk with my head held high
No liberation here

I can't look at myself with pride and joy
Every night I'm filled with fright
I look all and up and down
Behold what a sight
Nature secretly told me this is not right
Well my darling let's see what I can be
When my body does defy the basic birds and bees

There's a couple who wear fry boots today
And they make good love in the outdoors today
Love in the great outdoors
No-no-no-no liberation here

I have close to no pride
Which way?
Where is the bathroom?
I will do my duty
Where's the disease infested toilet seat that I can plunge in deep?
Bury me head and face in crappy toilet water in shit

I don't feel right
No liberation here
I cannot be proud
No liberation here-here-here-here
No liberation
And I cannot walk with my head held high
No liberation here - ah! oh!
I don't feel right
No-no liberation here-here-here-here
And I cannot be proud
No liberation here-uh-yeah!
And I cannot walk with my head held high
No liberation here nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-no!
