The Lyrics

I could go to war and make my country proud.
Sing the tune of Mr Howard.
Or I could learn a trick or two from history.
What does it have to do with me?
Turn on the TV and it's all you seem to see.
It's really getting quite unnerving.

Everybody wants a war.
No, no, not me!
Everybody wants a war.
No, no, not me!
Everybody wants a war.
No, no, not me!
Not me!

I'm sorry, Mr Bush, he tried to kill your dad.
It must've made you oh so mad!
But just how many fathers die because of war?
I'll tell you something disturbing:


I don't like your ignorance
Eat your words, they make no sense
Propaganda, lies, lies, lies!
Open up your god damned eyes!
I'm not mincing words with you!
War is good for business too!
