STRAWBERRY JAM
by Michelle Shocked

Saturday morning found me itchin'
To get on over to my grandma's kitchen

The sweetest little berries was cooking up right
And then we'd put them in a canning jar
and seal them up tight

We were making jam
Strawberry jam
Yeah, if you want the best jam
You gotta make your own

We have Smucker's, Welches, Knotts Berry Farm
But a little homemade jam never did a body no harm
A little local motion is all we need
To close down these corporate jam factories!

We'll be making jam
Strawberry jam
If you want the best jam
You gotta make your own

Yeah, we have a little revolution sweeping the land
Now once more everybody's making homemade jam
So won't you call your friends up on the telephone
You invite 'em on over, you make some jam of your own

You'll be making jam!
Strawberry jam!
If you want the best jam
You gotta make your own!


March 2013: Please note that this page was created (many years) before Michelle decided to become a homophobic fundamentalist Christian. Once upon a time she was a great musician with a great soul, but trauma and whoknowswhatelse has turned her into a hateful small-minded person. This saddens me to no end. I still want to honor the person she once was and the art she once made, including this great song, so I'm leaving this up here.

Michelle, come back to us. We miss you.
