February 9, 1950, February 9, 1964

Tail-gunner Joe said on this very day that lots of commies
Were working in the Department of State.
14 years later, The Beatles went on "Ed Sullivan" and they
Knocked the world out like a heavyweight.

Senator McCarthy died back in 1957 --- this is
Clearly why he never could've
Seen The Fab Four. If liquor hadn't killed him
That TV appearance would've.

Governments change and pendulums shift:
Red-bashing megalomania
Was destined to have come up short against
The rise of Beatlemania.
