11:08 am - Arguably, even more relevant than before.
I am Governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles
And never frowns
Soon I will be president...

Carter Power will soon go away
I will be Fuhrer one day
I will command all of you
Your kids will meditate in school
Your kids will meditate in school!

California! Uber Alles!
California! Uber Alles!
Uber Alles! California!
Uber Alles! California!

Zen fascists will control you
100% natural
You will jog for the master race
And always wear the happy face

Close your eyes, can't happen here
Big Bro' on white horse is near
The hippies won't come back you say
Mellow out or you will pay
Mellow out or you will pay!

California! Uber Alles!
California! Uber Alles!
Uber Alles! California!
Uber Alles! California!

Now it is 1984
Knock-knock at your front door
It's the suede/denim secret police
They have come for your uncool niece

Come quietly to the camp
You'd look nice as a drawstring lamp
Don't you worry, it's only a shower
For your clothes here's a pretty flower.

DIE on organic poison gas
Serpent's egg's already hatched
You will croak, you little clown
When you mess with President Brown
When you mess with President Brown

California! Uber Alles!
California! Uber Alles!
Uber Alles! California!
Uber Alles! California!

He was really hard-charging on a lot of environmental issues. People remember him for taking away a tax-break from oil companies and pushing for bigger environmental standards.

Admittedly, those sound a lot less crazy these days.

He also refused to live in the governor's mansion or be driven to work. He rented an apartment and drove a Plymouth in. Given that he was holding Oakland city council meetings in his garage, it's likely he'll do something similar again.

By the way, the name came along because of Linda Ronstadt. He was dating her at the time and a Rolling Stone journalist heard her refer to him as "Moonbeam".

Jello Biafra mentioned a few years after "California Uber Alles" that Brown wasn't nearly as bad as he had thought.

And, of course, he was a damn sight better than Reagan or Wilson. But that's another story for another time.
