Bomb ourselves- David Rovics

The President got on TV and there was nary a dry eye,

He said he loved his country and mom and apple pie

He said he was a proud man and he liked his home fries

And as for countries harboring terrorists, those people should be killed

He said we'd send our bombers to deal with rogue states

And all those evil people would have to meet their fates

So it was with some trepidation that I looked up to the skies,

'Cause I was driving past Fort Benning when I came to realize

That I guess we're gonna have to bomb Columbus, Georgia, home
of the infamous SOA

'Cause they train the death squads of Colombia who commit a massacre every day

Civilians are their targets, folks just like you and me

I guess that makes them terrorists, any idiot must agree

And I was heading further south for a vacation to spend some time hanging on the beach

Soaking up some sun and playing volleyball with all my troubles out of reach

And then I saw Brothers to the Rescue flying in the clouds above my head

And I thought this trip might not be too restful if tomorrow I am dead

'Cause I guess we're gonna have to bomb Miami, with all those insurgents running loose

Killing Cubans at the Bay of Pigs and elsewhere, they say they've got some kind of excuse

But isn't terror terror irregardless if your victim is a fan of Karl Marx

So let's bring on the cluster bombs and napalm, kill off some people, fish and sharks

Well I thought I would head north, go someplace where I might feel safe

These thoughts all seemed a bit unsettling, I was feeling a bit like a lost waif

It was then I thought I'd move to Costa Rica, though such a thing seemed terribly uncouth

Because I suddenly realized with horror, the terrifying clear and present truth

I guess we're gonna have to bomb Washington, DC, 'cause terrorists are lurking all around

Sending soldiers, guns and money wherever death squads and dictators may be found

So let's appreciate the situation, take your Orwell off the shelves

If we are to listen to our President then we're going to have to bomb ourselves
