“Unitimidated” Rocks the Airwaves for the First Time

Tuesday, 24 December 2013 | buzz

Activist Greg Gordon wrote “Unintimidated” (to the tune of the Ramones’ “I Wanna Be Sedated”) to celebrate the release of the book about the Wisconsin protest movement of the same name. On December 23rd (Festivus Day!), Gordon (guitar and vocals), Daithi Wolfe (violin and vocals) and Bernie Schlafke (guitar and vocals) presented the broadcast debut of the tune live on WORT’s Eight O’Clock Buzz. 1-2-3-4…!

Lyrics (by Greg Gordon, used with permission):

To the tune of “I Wanna Be Sedated” by the Ramones...

Twenty, twenty, twenty twenty inches of snow? I’m unintimidated
Only, only, only, only one place to go, oh, I’m unintimidated

Just get me to the Capitol and let me sing a song
I gotta get there before one so I can sing along
I gotta tell the governEr his policies are wrong
Oh no, oh, oh, oh, oh

Twenty, twenty, twenty twenty inches of snow? I’m unintimidated
Only, only, only, only one place go, oh, I’m unintimidated

Just put me in a Union Cab and take me to the square
Hurry, hurry, hurry, my friends will all be there
They might give me a ticket but I don’t really care
Oh no, oh, oh, oh, oh

Twenty, twenty, twenty twenty inches of snow? I’m unintimidated
Only, only, only, only one place go, oh, I’m unintimidated

Just put me in a Union Cab and get me to the show
Hurry, hurry, hurry before I go loco
Our governEr’s a fascist and I just can’t take no mo’
Oh no, oh, oh, oh, oh

Twenty, twenty, twenty twenty inches of snow? I’m unintimidated
Only, only, only, only one place go, oh, I’m unintimidated

Just floor it , taxi driver, even if you have to swerve
Hurry, hurry, hurry now’s no time to lose your nerve
We’re almost there, it’s Friday, and I hear the Learning Curve
Oh no, oh, oh, oh, oh

Bamp bamp, ba bamp, ba bamp bamp, ba bamp, We’re unintimidated. Bamp bamp, ba bamp, ba bamp bamp, ba bamp, We’re unintimidated. Bamp bamp, ba bamp, ba bamp bamp, ba bamp, We’re unintimidated. Bamp bamp, ba bamp, ba bamp bamp, ba bamp, We’re unintimidated.
