Body Bag Blues

BODY-BAG BLUES for AMERICA

 

Words: P. Agnos, Inspired by Billy Holiday song

 

Love my country sober, and I love her when she’s drunk,

I love my country sober, and love her when she’s drunk,

Love her better when she’s not high on Afghan junk.

 

War will sap our freedoms, kill a lot of kids,

War will sap our freedoms, kill a lot of kids,

War will pull this country down the no-where skids.

 

The gun-gang all gone groggy, mad to go to war,

The gun-hawks all gone groggy, mad to go to war.

Sober ‘em up or they’ll drag us into deep gore.

 

Let’s ask a few straight questions, ask them loud and clear,

Let’s ask a few straight questions, ask them loud and clear:

Who get’s the loot?  Who’s blown up? Is it worth warfare?

 

Let’s ask straight questions, ask them now and here,

Let’s ask straight questions, ask them now and here:

Who’ll get a body bag? Who’ll winds up a billionaire?
