The Lyrics

Is it all worth dying for?
Enemies upon our shore
All we ever hear; It’s cru…el
Should we kill them over there?
Don’t allow them in our hair
Still the softies say it’s cru…el
Who can we trust, not the king, he’s unjust
Can we fight, can we live free or die
Now there’s nothing to stop us from getting an itch
In the tip of our right index fing…ger

War, glorious war!
Our national muster
Two hundred plus years
Washington and Custer
Lexington and Concord, boys
And war of secession
Playing with the latest toy’s
Our ob-session

War, glorious war!
C-rations, let’s try it
Meals Ready to Eat
Guess I’m on a diet
C.O. gets a great big steak
That’s making me sore
Oh, war,
Wonderful war
Marvelous war
Glorious war

War, glorious war!
Third oldest profession
Troops marching in line
Well-oiled procession
What is it the ladies love?
What makes them all fall?
Men dressed in a uniform
Six feet tall

War, glorious war!
Conflict all around you
Slog through the terrain
No matter the venue
Push through till you take the hill
Then you plant Old Glory
The war
Once again, war
Fabulous war
Glorious war

War, glorious war!
Our national pastime
Drugs
Poverty
Food
Hope this is the last time
Our country is growing fat
Fools flipping their wiggy
Dreaming of a world that
Looks like Twiggy

War, glorious war!
Why try to deny it
Don’t knock it they say
Not until you try it
Why should we be treated to,
Lectures from a boor
On war
Magical war
Wonderful war
Marvelous war
Fabulous war
Beautiful war…
Glorious war!

I like the references to the war on drugs, food, poverty. We shall never know a minute's peace or a single day of normality. We worship the concept of war and turn every activity into conflict. It's time to make war on war.

My favorite of the day. Great job, Onslaught. A nice dose of cynicism and plenty of neat lines (the Twiggy line was my favorite).Pacing was very good.
Keep 'em coming. We need more of your writing caliber on the site.
