Story Behind the Song

This song was written the night before the Green Party Convention in 2000 at Madison Square Garden. Vinny and I tried to no avail to get onstage that night to play it. We played it to huge crowds there outside and around the event. It was a big hit.

Lyrics

LET RALPH DEBATE

Show me the faces of the people
who decide the fate of freedom
To keep a man of the people down
To keep his ideas hidden

They think that they can hold him back
They made that decision for you
They want to keep him off the stage
I’m telling you the truth

chorus

10000 people at the demonstration
Anchorman holds his tongue
10000 people at the next demonstration
Anchorman holds her tongue
12000 people at the demonstration
Anchorman hold his tongue
Nobel prize winners sign a petition
Anchorman he's holds his tongue

Chorus, Solo

Something I don’t understand
Why not listen to the man
Isn’t that democracy?
His ideas we want to see

So let’s shake that money tree
Let’s shake that money tree
This political game ain’t free
In this society

Chorus
Let Ralph debate
Its getting late its almost election day
Let Ralph debate
Let Ralph debate
We the people decide our fate
Let Ralph debate
Let Ralph debate

(spoken) Let Ralph debate
