Wasteful Military Spending

Lyrics by: Vicki Ryder
Gaggle: RochesterSoFlo
Tune: Frère Jacques

Death unending! Military spending!What a waste! What a waste!
Reinstate some sanity,
Spend it for humanity,
Invest in jobs! Invest in peace!

Let’s build schools instead of bombs,
Let’s feed the poor! Let’s feed the poor!
Don’t spend all our taxes
To fight the “evil axis.”
Invest in schools! Invest in peace!

Missile shields and nuclear weapons —
What a waste! What a waste!
While we’re busy making war
We’re neglecting our own poor!
Invest in health! Invest in peace!

“Richest nation in the world!”
What a joke! Don’t make me choke!
Our kids are being left behind!
How can people be so blind?
Invest in kids! Invest in peace!
