The Fugs is a rock/protopunk group formed in the 1960’s. This song is featured on their debut album “The Fugs First Album”. Most recently the song can be heard during the end credits on the movie “Burn after Reading” by the Coen brothers.

Lyrics:
Who can kill a general in his bed?
Overthrow dictators if they’re red?
Fucking-a man!
CIA Man!

Who can buy a government so cheap?
Change a cabinet without a squeak.
Fucking-a man!
CIA Man!

Who can train guerillas by the dozens?
Send them out to kill their untrained cousins?
Fucking-a man!
CIA Man!

Who can get a budget that’s so great?
Who will be the 51st state?
Who has got the secrets as Service?
The one that makes the other service nervous?
Fucking-a man!
CIA Man!

Who can take the sugar from it’s sack,
Pour in LSD and put it back?
Fucking-a man!
CIA Man!

Who can mine the harbors a’ Nicaragua?
Out hit all the hitman of Chicagua.
Fucking-a man!
CIA Man!

Who can be so overtly covert?
Sometimes even covertly overt.
Fucking-a man!
CIA Man!

Whos the agency well known to God?
The one that copped his staff and copped his rod?
Fucking-a man!
CIA Man!
Fucking-a man!
CIA Man!
Fucking-a man!
CIA Man!
CIA Man!
CIA Man!
CIA Man!
CIA Man!
CIA Man!

Howlin’ Wolf – Smokestack Lightning (1964)

Chester Arthur Burnett (June 10, 1910 — January 10, 1976), better known as Howlin’ Wolf, was an influential American blues singer, guitarist and harmonica player.
With a booming voice and looming physical presence, Burnett is commonly ranked among the leading performers in electric blues; “no one could match Howlin’ Wolf for the singular ability to rock the house down to the foundation while simultaneously scaring its patrons out of its wits. Many songs popularized by Burnett, such as “Smokestack Lightnin”, “Back Door Man” and “Spoonful” have become standards of blues and blues rock.
