    Amplifiers & old guitars
    Country music sung in bars
    & when she sings the revolution's near

    Beauty holds the microphone
    & watches as we stumble home
    & she can see the revolution now

    Dirt & fish & trees & houses
    Smoke & hands up women's blouses
    Not like I expected it would be

    Bubbles pop in every size

    It's analyzed & criticized
    & beauty knows that it is almost here

    Beauty goes to her address
    She shuts the door and climbs the stairs
    & when she sleeps the revolution grows

    Beauty rests on mattress strings
    Wearing just her underthings
    & when she wakes the revolution's here
    & when she wakes the revolution's here
