Bromowitz, or whatever, Mr. Lee is no longer with us. Have some respect.

I like the politically incorrect lyrics. Of course the song came out about 20 years before political correctness took over.

If Alvin Lee really wants to change the world he could do something real instead of just singing about it and telling us to do it. How about volunteer or donate to music education programs, environmenta l groups, children's hospitals. Every person can change the world through action not talk.

What a classic, I'd love to change the world by Ten Years After. I just love this tune. Awesome Jam! Rock on!

So what's the meaning of the dykes and fairies line? Is he being ironic and making fun of how people are scared of hippies and gay people? Is he calling on the gay folks, in solidarity, to tell him where the sanity is? Or is he just being a homophobic jerk? You tell me.

Taxing the rich to feed the poor is unconstituti o n a l . I'll leave it at that. If you want to know why, look it up on the internet. F**king liberal scum. Get a job, lazy a** bums.
