about

IfIHadAHiFi recorded this song in 2011 as a response to, and in solidarity with, the Act 10 protests in Madison. This track raised $500+ for Russ Feingold's Progressives United PAC, and in a real way, it's the first UNINTIMIDATED song by our UNINTIMIDATED collective.

Looking to donate to the UNINTIMIDATED CD/DVD project, but only have a little bit of scratch? Grab this song download and donate whatever you can! Every bit helps, and everything we make above our costs will be donated to causes that need it (TBA soon!).

lyrics

Sell off the government with slight of hand
Strip the rights away from the working clans
The governor's declared war on behalf of his benefactors
Dispatching Imperial Walkers to the capitol door
Open for business
Everything must go
Now we're rebel soldiers marching in the snow

Fourteen senators on the lam
A state line away from the Empire's hand
Giving all of us time to make like Bothan spies
Spreading information far and wide
Breaking through the lies
Ten thousand, twenty thousand, sixty-five
If you screw us we will multiply

Face down the Imperial Walker
The puppet prince can't make us paupers
Take down the Imperial Walker
Imperial Walker, Imperial Walker
Face down the Imperial Walker
The puppet prince can't make us paupers
Take down the Imperial Walker
Imperial Walker, Imperial Walker

So Mr. Governor, you may wish us ill
As we take over your buildings fueled by pizza from Brazil
Threaten our schools, threaten our jobs, we took a vow
To stop you cuz we're all Wisconsin now
So we'll march all day
Play the drums all night
This is what happens when you poke a badger in the eye
