We’re Not Fixin’ to Die Rag

CHORUS IRAQ:

And it’s one, two, three,

What are we fightin’ for?

First it was WMD,

Now it’s “stability.”

And it’s five, six, seven,

It’s worse than Watergate

Force the Congress to open their eyes

We’re sending soldiers to die.

Join us, all good women and men,

America’s been asleep again.

The Constitution’s been under attack

Here at home and in Iraq.

If our troops don’t lay down their guns,

We’re gonna have a revolution!

 CHORUS IRAQ:

And it’s one, two, three,

What are we fightin’ for?

First it was WMD,

Now it’s “stability.”

And it’s five, six, seven,

It’s worse than Watergate.

Force the Congress to open their eyes

We’re sending soldiers to die.

Moms and Daddies watch your schools;

Recruiters treat your kids like fools.

They promise kids an education

Then they invade another nation.

Troops face bombs and IED’s,

And go home as amputees.

 CHORUS AFGHANISTAN:

And it’s one, two, three,

What are we fightin’ for?

Don’t Americans give a damn?

Let’s leave Afganistan.

And it’s five, six, seven,

It’s worse than Watergate.

Force the Congress to open their eyes

We’re sending soldiers to die.

Reservists and the National Guard

Get shipped out: “All aboard!”

If they don’t die on their first tour,

They get sent back for more and more,

They get called up till age 42.

Grannies, they’re coming for you!

CHORUS AFGHANISTAN:

And it’s one, two, three,

What are we fightin’ for?

Don’t Americans give a damn?

Let’s leaveAfganistan.

And it’s five, six, seven,

It’s worse than Watergate.

Force the Congress to open their eyes

Obama’s still letting them die.
