The Drums of Ford (with quotes from novel Brave New World)

I drink to the greater being.                                                            81

I feel how this greater being comes,                                   82

Rejoices, and, in rejoicings, dies                                           82


Since we are god’s property                                                238

These drums beat out the same rhythms                          113

If we are twelve, he makes us one                                      81

If I am you, then you are I

If all men are physicochemically equal,                              74


Then Oh Ford, Ford, Ford                                                     83

Before it's too late.                                                                176

A word of good advice.                                            

Mend your ways, my young friends,                      

Melt in the music of the drums                                           82

And mend your ways                                                           176
