Loudon
Now, hey everybody, we're havin' a war
Bigger and better than the one before
Do you remember that Arabian chap
We knocked him out of Kuwait and we turned off the tap
Baghdad, Belgrade, now Kabul again
War is hell and it don't make sense
Still some folks can't understand
Why we kill good people ... just to get a bad man

Hey everybody, we're havin' a war
So far haven't shown a whole lot of gore
Yellow ribbons and American flags
So far not a lotta body bags
Support the troops, Bin Laden sucks
Bumper sticks, T-shirt earn a few bucks
Still some folks can't understand
Why we kill good people just to get a bad man

Hey everybody, we're havin' a war
When will it end and what is it for
Two weeks six months maybe a year
We're gonna win but when's not clear
We're fightin' on the other hemisphere
Tooth for tooth and ear for ear
Still some folks can't understand
Why we kill good people
For Infinite Justice and Enduring Freedom and to get a bad man

Now, hey everybody, we're havin' a war
We got news coverage galore
Glued to the tube on the CNN
They're showin' that videotape again
But after a while it's no big deal
You flip over to The Simpsons and it seems more real
Still some folks can't understand
Why we kill good people just to get a bad man

Hey everybody, we're havin' a war
Now we're knockin' on Bin Laden's door
Let's get one thing understood
That bloody bastard is no damn good
We made him big and he spred hate
We didn't care and now it's too late
We're gonna take out buildings, bridges and roads
Concrete, flesh and bone explodes
And if good people have to die
That's just the way war is is why
Still some folks can't understand
Why we kill good people a whole lotta people
