Another anti-war song by Bob Leslie, which in his words 'critiques the morality of the crappy politicians who get us into this kind of mess'.
Seek not for whom the bell tolls
Just slip the damn bellringer a drink
And hope that he'll forget to call your name..
Get yourself a good plea bargain
And make sure it ain't a hard one so
Like beans 'n' beer,
You'll come back again

Though your hand's in the till, and your snout's in the swill
And you're sowing wild oats in your neighbour's field
If you've got the goods on your dishonourable friends…
When you're in need, they'll be friends indeed
You'll spring back up just like a weed
Like beans 'n' beer,
You'll come back again..

Seek not for whom the bell tolls
Just slip the damn bellringer a drink
And hope that he'll forget to call your name..
Get yourself a good plea bargain
And make sure it ain't a hard one so
Like beans 'n' beer,
You'll come back again

My country, 'tis of thee that bought it
Land of "hope we don't get caught"
it's Palms with greasy linings, rainbow's ends
And if your ratings start to drag
Start a war, wear a flag
Like beans 'n' beer,
You'll come back again..

Seek not for whom the bell tolls
Just slip the damn bellringer a drink
And hope that he'll forget to call your name..
Get yourself a good plea bargain
And make sure it ain't a hard one so
Like beans 'n' beer,
You'll come back again.


If it looks like a duck and it walks like a duck
And it quacks like a duck and it acts like a duck
Well, only you would tell me it's a hen
Though some shout "crook" over what you've took
You just wait by the oven till your book has cooked
then Like beans 'n' beer,
You'll come back again

Seek not for whom the bell tolls
Just slip the damn bell ringer a drink
And hope that he'll forget to call your name..
Get yourself a good plea bargain
And make sure it ain't a hard one so
Like beans 'n' beer,
You'll come back again.

Like beans 'n' beer,
You'll come back again.
