We have embraced many of Paul Spencer’s songs for their quirky expression of deeply relevant issues of our times. He makes all of his compositions freely available on paul-spencer.net.
Of all the world’s ills, there is none that’s more evil
More gruesome or dread than the terrorist threat
The President says that they’re really awful people
And when he’s not grinning you can tell he’s upset
We’ll march off to war, like good little soldiers,
We’ll march off to war, for President Bush,
Until we destroy all the axises of eveil,
For there’s freedom to fight for and a lifetsyle to push.
George Bush is angered by the death of civillians,
He finds it outrageous like anyone would,
So when he kills thousands and speaks about collateral,
He’s not being callous, you’ve misunderstood.
Now some bombs are dirty and cause mass destruction,
But our bombs are smart and they’ll solve all our woes,
Starvation and grief might appear to be a crisis,
But really we’re helping as everyone knows.
To help foster peace we’ll use words like “Islamist”,
To make it appear that they’re all this extreme,
Whereas our church is pure and could never be corrpupted,
And of world domination it would not even dream.
So send us your children we’ll fight against terror,
And suchlike emotions that lay people low,
We’ll fight them with guns and with lots of bloody slaughter,
But don’t ask who’s winning or how long to go.
