EDUCATING ARCHIE by Van Morrison

Dallas, TX

YOUíRE A SLAVE TO THE CAPITALIST SYSTEM
WHICH IS RULED BY THE GLOBAL ELITE
WHAT HAPPENED TO, THE INDIVIDUAL
WHAT HAPPENED TO, THE WORKING CLASS WHITE

THEY FILLED HIS HEAD WITH SO MUCH PROPAGANDA
ENTERTAINMENT ON TV AND ALL KINDS OF SHITE
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE INDIVIDUAL
WHEN HE GAVE UP ALL OF HIS RIGHTS

TELL YOU UP IS DOWN AND WRONG IS RIGHT
NOTHING TO HANG YOUR HAT ON, CANíT EVEN GET UPTIGHT

YOUíRE CONTROLLED BY THE MEDIA
EVERYTHING YOU SAY AND DO
WHAT HAPPENED TO, THE INDIVIDUAL
TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU
TELL YOU UP IS DOWN, NOT ABLE TO FIGHT
KEEP YOU DOCILE AND COMPLACENT, CANíT EVEN GET UPTIGHT
CONTROLLED BY THE MEDIA AND YOU DONíT KNOW WHAT YOU CAN DO
THEY TOOK AWAY YOUR CONSTITUTION YOU DONíT EVEN KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU

WAFFLE IS THE LANGUAGE THAT THEY TAUGHT YOU, TAUGHT YOU TO TALK
BUT YOU CANíT EVEN GET ANY ANGLE ĎCAUSE YOU FORGOT HOW. KEEP ON WALKING THE WALK

YOUíRE A SLAVE TO THE CAPITALIST SYSTEM AND ITíS CONTROLLED BY THE GLOBAL ELITE
DOUBLE DEALING WITH THE BANKS, BEHIND YOUR BACK, JUST CANíT FIGHT

Great find Cindi!

LOL, should be 5 cents like in the Peanuts comic strips! Great find!

As I recall (way back on BBC-tv), ventriloquist dummy Archie always had the last word.

And everyone has free advise to offer. Love the image Cindi. Fantastic find.

The colors are perfect for VAN MORRISON! V
Janice Dunn05-Nov-2013 03:54
Good idea - and it's free as they have no extra charges, like rent!!!
sue anne05-Nov-2013 01:53
I think I may ask for some advice. Good find. V

The words certainly ring true today - the song is named after a ventriloquist's dummy character in the UK from the 1950's.

So maybe these people are the exception - they are not the dummies who follow the usual path that feeds the 'control' and subsequent unfairness he writes about.

Cool that you snapped these guys..

Hm... how to spend your life or just cooking tips?

I can't even image what these women would have to say. Great find and perfect for the song. V.

Brilliant pairing of the words and the image

Yes Van. My forever favourite singer ever since the sixties.
How clever of you to pair this with your great find of these interesting people.
Linda Matta04-Nov-2013 20:29
Really well portrayed!

I've not actually read the words. Quite a mind that VM has.
