Recruiters Lie

Lyrics by: Vicki Ryder
Gaggle: Rochester
Tune: 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall

We’re the Raging Grannies!We’re mad as mad can be!
Recruiters lie, our children die;
That’s not how it should be!

Our kids are told that they’ll get jobs
And money for college too,
But you can bet that what they’ll get
Is just the royal screw.

They send our kids to die in war
But what have they achieved?
They say they’re fighting terrorists
But we won’t be deceived.

Halliburton’s getting rich.
It’s really quite uncouth
To profit from war. We say: No more!
It’s time we heard the truth!

Let’s give our kids the jobs they need
So they don’t have to go!
And when recruiters hunt them down
They can all say NO!

We’re here to say we want our kids
To grow up safe and sound.
Not get blown up by a roadside bomb
Half the world around.

War is not the answer,
And so we’re here to say:
We’ve had enough, its time to get tough
(sweetly) The sweet old Granny way.
