Roy Clark – The Lawrence Welk-Hee Haw Counter Revolution Polka Lyrics

They’re goin’ through a music revolution
The hippies say they’ll overcome us all
While they’re blowin’ smoke and air poluttion
We’re hangin’ in with help from Geritol.

They’re rounding up the squares in California
They’re picking off our heroes in new york
But they’ll never take away our champagne music
As long as Lawrene Welk can pop his cork

Can they still do the polka in Milwaukee
Still do the waltz in Tennessee
Still pickin’ bluegrass in Kentucky
With old fashioned country harmony
So give me some beer drinkin’ music
And play that double eagle march for me
For they still do the polka in Milwaukee
So let me hear that one or two or three

The big wheels at the network started spinnin’
The verdict was tha Hee Haw had to go
Cause city slicker don’t believe in grinnin’
And who the hell needs jokes in Kokomo

They cancelled all the singin’ and the pickin’
But the stubborn little donkey wouldn’t leave
And that little fella’s still alive and kickin’
And Hee Haw is laughin’ up it’s sleeve hee haw

And they still do the polka in Milwaukee
Still do the waltz in Tennessee

Still pickin’ bluegrass in Kentucky
With old fashioned country harmony
So give me some beer drinkin’ music
And let me hear that one or two or three
While we swing to that good old country music
For Hee Haw is good enough for me
Yes Hee Haw is good enough for me
