I'M A DIALECTIC DOPE

I'm a dialectic dope.
How does Marx explain romance and
  devotion?
Do I need a purgin' for this anti-
  virgin urgin'?
What's the party line on love?

It's so difficult to cope
With the problem of sex midst class
  war's commotion.
Does this neckin' hectic contradict
  the dialectic?
What's the party line on love?

Serene in embraces where no cop's
  billy bashes 'em,
Must comrades continue the struggle
  against fascism?
I need a discussion with all-highest
  Joe
On what every young party woman
  should know.

I'm a dialectic dope.
Comrade Browder, did Engels ever
  have a glandular explosion?
Are my feelings proletarian,
  opportunist or sectarian?
What's the party line on love?
Should a gal give red Casanova
  permission
Before she's been handed a party
  decision?
We know all the theses on fascist
  strife,
But what is the line on the personal
  life?

I'm a dialectic dope.
Must comrades have some hymeneal
  patience?
Does a little dalliance upset the
  Marxist balance,
And the party's line on love?

O, can a Bolsheviki wicky-wacky
  wacky-wicki?
What is the party line?
We need a party line,
O, who's got the party line on love?

LOVE WILL BE SWEETER UNDER SCHACHTMAN

Love will be sweeter under Schachtman,
Everybody knows that his administra-
  tion will
Make every lover twice as potent.
City Hall will give each man a certain
  little pill
And if you find that your love just
won't endure
And you know that you've got a
  neurosis,
Our Mayor Schachtman's clinics will
  give you a cure,
Guaranteed by the dialectical process.

Yes, love will be sweeter under
  Schachtman.
He will see that every nook and
  cranny in our parks
Will be for lovers' use protected.
He will have them shaded by the
whiskers of Karl Marx.

Oh, Lulu Belle, o Lulu Belle,
You can tell those cowboy lovers
They can go right plumb to hell
For love will better in the city
When this fellow Schachtman to the
  Mayor's chair mounts.
He'll  make our city's lovers pretty,
And they will be thicker, slicker,
  quicker where it counts.
