Rachel Corrie
B. 1979 Olympia, Washington / D. 3.16.03 Rafah, Palestine
Vehicular Homicide

To the tune of (The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes by Elvis Costello (1977):

Oh well I used to be fluorescent
But now Iím kind of like a bruise
ĎCause I stood up to the Knesset
You know Israelis squashed me flat in my shoes

For when the driver ran me down the first time
I just thought that he must be confused
But then I kept getting flatter
The Israelis squashed me flat in my shoes

Shalom!
I was watching CNN one day
Noam Chomsky said There must be a better way
Thatís why I ended up spring breaking off in Gaza
Until the shit reversed and turned me
into matzoh

Oh I used to be a leftist
(Oh why's that?)
But now Iím more like primal ooze
(That's too bad!)
Learn from my example
(I'm so sad!)
And always work in twos!
I could have dealt with being arrested
But the Israelis squashed me flat in my shoes

Oh I said Give peace a chance today
He said Six million dead!
Then put it in drive to stay
Thatís what I get for trying to mend the situation
A pelvis like kugel
this was some vacation

Oh well I used to be fluorescent
But now Iím kind of like a bruise
ĎCause I stood up to the Knesset
You know Israelis squashed me flat in my shoes

For when the driver ran me down the first time
I just thought that he must be confused
And I wonít get any older
ĎCause a good bulldozer makes bad Jews
No I wonít get any older
ĎCause a good bulldozer makes bad Jews

Bad Jews!
Israelis squashed me flat in my shoes
Bad Jews!
Israelis squashed me flat in my shoes
Bad Jews!
Israelis squashed me flat in my shoes
