Considering that we were treated to Mitt Romney’s views on foreign policy earlier this week, it seems time to haul out a salient nugget (and one of my favorite tunes) from the inimitable Root Boy Slim, the former Yale frat brother (DKE) of ex-President George W. Bush. (I wrote that Wikipedia entry, btw).
This tune was composed and recorded in the late 70s, and was the lead-off track on Zoom, Root and the band’s second album. Although it was never as popular as other numbers from that disc such as “Do the Gator,” “Dare to Be Fat,” or “Dozin’ and Droolin‘,” like much of Root’s amazing work, it seems eerily prescient, more than 30 years later.
‘Afghanistan coinage . . .’ — yeah!
Ladies and gentleman, ‘World War III.’
