THIS LITTLE NATION


If this little nation goes down the drain ask yourself

What’s gonna happen to all the other little nations?

I saw you splatter one right in the back with a missile

Now we can build a great society --it’ll last three months

But you have our complete support.

There is no question what so ever

We are here to stay!

Foreign Invaders

Responding to chaos with new resolve

Going south to the countryside to draw the line

Hold the line. The final domino is the Presidency.

Bring the resolution off the shelf

Bring back the blank check

It’s unanimous in the house

Being in a minority doesn’t mean that you’re wrong,

But that’s the way it’s gonna be.

We must love each other or we must die

At the end of November

I was given an order,

I sat in a nearby cafe to wait for the explosion.

As a result the attack succeeded and we got away from the Brink’s Hotel. New Years Greetings in the year of the snake.

On with Rolling thunder...

And how bout some help

To defend a place like that

We’ve got to find these Viet Cong and kill’Em.

If Ho Che Mien would have been George Meany

Johnson would have had a deal.

“ I feel like a hitch-hiker in a hail storm on a Texas highway.

I can’t run, I can’t hide, and I can’t make it stop.”

We are out of our minds and cannot reconcile our pride.

We will not retreat

We cannot be defeated by code of arms

We will meet his needs (but don’t tell the people)

It’s too dangerous if an entire people get too angry.

Some want to blow up everything

Some want to get out

Lets reason it out and give these people a choice to

Bother something else past a renewed commitment.

We have declared war on disease

We have declared war on tyranny

Poised in a river valley at the foot of a mountain

Face to Face with a B-52 for the first time.

It’s not like all the other wars said the President

Yet finally all wars are the same.

We do what we must to end this battle

For we must stand

Or see the promise of two centuries fail.
