The Old H-U-A-C (The Raunch Hands) I am a college student And I've come to sing a song I've always been a liberal I never thought it wrong But I have come to tell you Take warning now from me Or you may have to tangle with The old H-U-A-C. Now, I am only eighteen years Of age as of this date It's hard to see how I could be A danger to the state But that's what the committee said And so it has to be For their sources are of Unimpeachable integrity. H-U-A-C, H-U-A-C What a lucky thing it is for you and me That our freedoms are well guarded By politically retarded Men of unimpeachable integrity. I went and joined a picket line Because I'd like to see No more discrimination If our land is really free I'd like to see them put an end To weapons testing too But they say this is a dangerous Subversive point of view. I tried to be progressive But I never was a red I thought the first amendment Meant exactly what it said But now that that's gone out of style There's just one thing to do Be silent or conservative The choice is up to you. H-U-A-C, H-U-A-C They're just lookin' out For guys like you and me So become reactionary And of progress be most wary Keep our country true and brave And strong and free. So listen to my warning And reject each liberal view And praise the men who govern us No matter what they do But even this is not enough For those who would go far You'd better make your mother Join the local D A R. Now please don't tell them who It was that wrote this song If anyone should ask you Tell them I have moved along I'm sorry that I have to leave The evening has been great But I have been subpoenaed And I really can't be late.
