    lyrics

    there once was a musical troupe
    a pickin' singin' folk group
    they sang the mountain ballads
    and the folk songs of our land

    they were long on musical ability
    folks thought they would go far
    but political incompatibility led to their downfall

    well, the one on the right was on the left
    and the one in the middle was on the right
    and the one on the left was in the middle
    and the guy in the rear was a methodist

    this musical aggregation toured the entire nation
    singing the traditional ballads
    and the folk songs of our land
    they performed with great virtuosity
    and soon they were the rage
    but political animosity prevailed upon the stage

    well, the one on the right was on the left
    and the one in the middle was on the right
    and the one on the left was in the middle
    and the guy in the rear burned his driver's license

    well the curtain had ascended
    a hush fell on the crowd
    as thousands there were gathered to hear the folk songs of our land
    but they took their politics seriously
    and that night at the concert hall
    as the audience watched deliriously
    they had a free-for-all

    well, the one on the right was on the bottom
    and the one in the middle was on the top
    and the one on the left got a broken arm
    and the guy in the rear, said, "oh dear"

    now this should be a lesson if you plan to start a folk group
    don't go mixin' politics with the folk songs of our land
    just work on harmony and diction
    play your banjo well
    and if you have political convictions keep them to yourself

    now, the one on the left works in a bank
    and the one in the middle drives a truck
    the one on the right's an all-night deejay
    and the guy in the rear got drafted
