A Groovy, New Protest Song!

THIS SONG IS SUNG TO THE TUNE OF "WABASH CANNONBALL."
Y'know friends, bein' a dirt poor activist clown is kinda like bein' an old dawg treadin' water for hours in the dang sewer (we stopped flushin dawgs), but every once in awhile that cute little clown Chlorine Enema Jones rewrites an old folk song and it makes us smile. -Dingo.
NOT JUST CANNONBALLZ.
A D
Well, it's not about SCUD missiles, or Smart bombs, anymore.
E A
Now its Anthrax & dirty bombs, & all-out nuclear war.
D
& we've got to stop fighting, if we all want to survive.
E A
We'd be askin' Ghandi for his help, if he were still alive.
(CHORUS)
A D
'Cause a weapon of mass destruction isi a far cry from a sword
E A
& Mass extinction is the consequence of yer new kind of war.
A D
While yer conquerin' foreign nations & watchin' governments fall
E A
I hope you will rember, George, They're not just cannonballs.

(CHORUS)

Now, Bush Senior went to Panama, when Noriega Said:
"Yer treaty is expirin'. Soon, yer puppet govrnment's dead."
The US used a chemical bomb that turned human flesh to soup.
Civilians tried to hide in their car, but it melted off the roof

(CHORUS)

Well, Noriega, Hussein, & Bin Laden himself
Were all sponsored by the US. We said we were trying to help.
But building up these maniacs, & then trying to take the on,
Is obviously insane, & it always turns out wrong.

(CHORUS)

So, this goes back to Hitler, whom the Bush family did fund:
Job security for the CIA, but it isn't any fun,
When deperate men start crashin planes,
where you're just tryin' ta work...
And it don't make us the heroes, folks, if we start strikin' first.

(CHORUS)
A E
I said, I pray you will remember, George,
A
They're not just cannonballs.
