Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems
Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1965 Schroder Music Company, renewed 1993. The lead sheet and copyright record for this song report Malvina as having authored both words and music, while the lyrics-only sheet says "music to the tune of Woody Guthrie's 'Slipknot.'" The latter instructions were probably given so that people could pick up the song quickly, singing it to something they knew. Malvina sometimes wrote tunes but suggested other tunes on several songs so they could be handed out at demonstrations and sung.
They have lots of fancy names for that napalm,
Well, your school is too refined to speak of napalm,
Lucy Baines, did you ever see that napalm?
