It's A Scandal! It's A Outrage! [ALI THE PEDDLERMAN]
Trapped!
Tricked!
Hoodblinked!
Hambushed!

[MEN]
Friend, what's on your mind?
Why do you walk around and around?
With your hands folded behind?
And your chin scr*ping the ground?

[ALI]
Twenty minutes ago, I am free, like a breeze.
Free like a bird in the woodland wild.
Free like a gypsy, free like a child.
I am unattached.

Twenty minutes ago, I can do what I please.
Flick my cigar ashes on the rug.
Dunk with a donut, drink from a jug.
I am a happy man.

I am minding my own business like I oughta.
Ain't meaning any harm to anyone.
I'm talking to a certain farmer's daughter-
Then I am looking in the muzzle of a gun!

[MEN]
It's getting so you can't have any fun.
Every daughter has a father with a gun.

It's a scandal. It's an outrage.
How a gal gets a husband today.

[ALI]
If you make one mistake when the moon is bright
Then they tie you to a contract so you make it every night.

[MEN]
It's a scandal. It's an outrage.
When her family surround you and say,
"You gotta take and make an honest woman outa Nell"

[ALI]
To make you make her honest, she will lie like hell!

[MEN]
It's a scandal. It's an outrage.
On our manhood it's a blot!
Where is the leader who will save us
And be the first man to be shot?

[ALI]
Me?

[MEN]
Yes, you!

It's a scandal. It's an outrage.
Just a wink and a kiss and you're through!

[ALI]
You're a mess, and in less then a year, by heck
There's a baby on your shoulder making bubbles on your neck.

[MEN]
It's a scandal. It's an outrage.
Any farmer will tell you it's true.

[ALI]
A rooster in a chicken coop is better off than men-
He ain't the special property of just one hen.

[MEN]
It's a scandal. It's an outrage.
It's a problem we must solve.
We gotta start a revolution!

[WOMEN]
All right, boys. Revolve!
