Lift the Blockade

CHORUS:
Oh
dear, what can the matter be?
The U.S. is planning transition democracy,
Meddling in countries where they hadn’t oughta be….
Keep your hands off Cuba now!

They say that they’re fighting to keep us all free
But then won’t let us travel across the blue sea
To the island of Cuba where health care is free…
Lift the blockade-o right now!

REPEAT 1st CHORUS

They think that the Cubans will see it their way
If they starve them and bomb them and keep them at bay,
But we all know you can’t win new friends that way,
So lift the blockade-o right now!

It’s time that we lifted this cruel blockade
And let U.S. farmers engage in fair trade,
And let us buy rum and cigars Cuban-made,
Oh, lift the blockade-o right now!

FINAL CHORUS:
Oh
dear, what can the matter be?
The U.S. is planning transition democracy,
Meddling in countries where they hadn’t oughta be….
But we’re going to change that, and how!!

VARIATIONS: PASTORS FOR PEACE

CHORUS:
Oh dear, the president ordered
The Pastors for Peace to be stopped at the border.
They might not have food and they might not have water
But justice will win in the end.

It’s time that we lifted this cruel blockade
And stopped with this Border Protection charade,
And let us buy rum and cigars Cuban-made,
Oh, lift the embargo right now!
