For Our Grandchildren’s Sake

Tune: Sweet Betsy From Pike

                   Our nation has people in desperate straits.

                   It’s high time we care for the United States

                   for we are the people we must liberate.

                   End corporate rule 

                   for our grandchildren’s sake!

                  End corporate rule for our grandchildren’s sake!


                   Our bridges and highways are falling a-part.

                   Most leaders in Washington don’t have a heart.

                   They spend all our money on killing and hate

                   Let’s re-build at home

                   for our grandchildren’s sake!

                   Let’s rebuild at home for our grandchildren’s sake!


                   We’re overextended. We’re stretched to the max,

                   expecting our grand-kids to pay it all back.

                   To bankrupt our nation’s a tragic mistake.

                   Let’s bring home our troops

                   for our grandchildren’s sake!

                   Let’s end violence for everyone’s sake! 


                   Our wars are atrocities, driven by lies.

                   At home we let job loss and poverty rise.

                   WHAT kind of world do you want to create?

                   Let’s stop waging wars!

(shout)             STOP!
