AS WE DANCE TO THE NEXT ‘NAM WAR

And as we march to the next ‘Nam war,
Don’t ask your Momma “What the hell for?”
Or why George Bush sent our boys to die
Beneath a blue Iraqi* sky?
(Drums beats, trumpets blow)
- George-boy told us to go fight
For enterprises he think right;
To open less-developed lands
To the products of his business friends.
- He’ll teach the natives modern ways,
He’ll sing their daughters roundelays,
He’ll bring them ‘progress’: Joe’s got to vote,
Even if we shove ballots down his throat.
- Democracy and napalm jelly,
He’ll sprinkle on Joe’s skinny belly,
Till Joe agrees that George is right,
And Joe really ought not to fight.
- For ain’t we freedom’s chosen crew?
We’ll teach those guys a thing or two,
We’ll bring them love from the Pentagon staff,
While Hollywood makes their kiddies laugh. Ha Ha!
