Album: Penthouse and Pavement (1981)
Charted: 45
  • (Everybody move to prove the groove)

    Have you heard it on the news?
    About this fascist groove thang?
    Evil men with racist views
    Spreading all across the land

    Don't just sit there on your ass
    Unlock that funky chaindance
    Brothers, sisters shoot your best
    We don't need this fascist groove thang

    Brothers, sisters, we don't need that fascist groove thang

    History will repeat itself
    Crisis point we're near the hour
    Counterforce will do no good
    Hot you ass I feel your power

    Hitler proves that funky stuff
    Is not for you and me girl
    Europe's an unhappy land
    They've had their fascist groove thang

    Brothers, sisters, we don't need that fascist groove thang

    Democrats are out of power
    Across that great wide ocean
    Reagan's president elect
    Fascist god in motion

    Generals tell him what to do
    Stop your good time dancing
    Train their guns on me and you
    Fascist thang advancing

    Sisters, brothers lend a hand
    Increase our population
    Grab that groove thang by the throat
    And throw it in the ocean

    You're real tonight you move my soul
    Let's cruise out of the dance war
    Come out your house and dance your dance
    Shake that fascist groove thang

    Brothers, sisters, we don't need that fascist groove thang Writer/s: Glenn Gregory, Ian Marsh, Martyn Ware
