The Lyrics

A celebration of the recent nuclear deal with Iran, and the resulting neocon freak-out
(INSTRUMENTAL INTRO)

'Twas in the autumn of the year
Of two thousand and thirteen
The Americans and Iranians
New hope for peace had seen

Because in Tehran emerged
With a more pacific tone
A leader named Rouhani there
Neocons he made to groan

CHORUS:
They've been ranting ever since
Frustrated night and day
Armageddon fantasies
For now have been delayed

(INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE)

Both countries down to Geneva went
And summoned their diplomats
To work on scaling back the nuclear goals
The Iranians had set

Israeli leaders denounced the pact
Their potshots had to take
Netanyahu called it an
Historical mistake

CHORUS: REPEAT

(INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE)

And soon the right-wing media
Fired up their smear machine
"Another Munich!" and "Betrayal!" cried
They vented all their spleen

For they could not their macho dreams
Fulfill to bomb Iran
Thanks to the deal that was in part
The work of Kerry's hand

CHORUS: REPEAT 2x

(INSTRUMENTAL OUTRO)
