Springtime in Freedomland

It is springtime in Freedomland
We take our capitalism straight
       and our socialism sneaky.

It is springtime in the Evilempire1,
They take their socialism straight
       and their capitalism sneaky.

We vote Democratic
They vote Socialist
We both get moralizing and promises.

We buy property
       and the State takes it away
       when it needs it.

They rent property
       and the State takes it away
       when it needs it.

       EAST and WEST
       Our freedoms have been whittled
       Away
       Until there's not one whit's
       Difference.
