O gather round you bully boys
and hear just what I say
We have a Great Society
in the good old U.S.A.

So listen, nations of the earth
We give our promise true
If you don't obey your Uncle Sam
his troops will visit you

And we'll honor our commitment
honor our commitment
Even if the world goes up
in a smoke of a mushroom cloud

And we'll honor our commitment
honor our commitment
Get buried with our brothers
in one great communal shroud

Nor, widows like candy canes
and orphans all like jam
And bandaids come in handy
for the wounded in Vietnam

So send your package out today
to the homeless kids and wives,
We're sure the ones we haven't killed
will love us all their lives

And we'll honor our commitment
honor our committment
Even if the world goes up
in a smoke of a mushroom cloud

And we'll honor our commitment
honor our committment
Get buried with our brothers
in one great communal shroud

We're shocked to death at India,
enraged at Pakistan
So we're told Arthur Goldberg
to denounce them, man to man

There in the UN's sacred hells
we've rained a mighty fuss
Cease Fire, we tell all nations
that means everyone but us.

And we'll honor our commitment
honor our committment
Even if the world goes up
in a smoke of a mushroom cloud

And we'll honor our commitment
honor our commitment
Get buried with our brothers
in one great communal shroud

These Latin revolutions, now,
we watch 'em like a bask
And when we try to lend a hand
we can't an why they squawk

If only those Dominicans
would follow in our trade
Then soldiers wouldn't feel obliged
to shoot them in the back

And we'll honor our commitment
honor our commitment
Even if the world goes up
in a smoke of a mushroom cloud

And we'll honor our commitment
honor our commitment
Get buried with our brothers
in one great communal shroud

La versione del video (dal disco No More War) con due strofe diverse trascritte con qualche dubbio.

No More War
HONOR OUR COMMITMENT

O gather round you bully boys
and hear just what I say
We have a Great Society
in the good old U.S.A.

So listen, nations of the earth
We give our promise true
If you don't obey your Uncle Sam
his troops will visit you

And we'll honor our commitment
honor our commitment
Even if the world goes up
in a smoke of a mushroom cloud

Honor our commitment
honor our commitment
Get buried with our brothers
in one great communal shroud

Nor, widows like candy canes
and orphans all like jam
And bandaids come in handy
for the wounded in Vietnam

So send your package out today
to the homeless kids and wives,
We're sure the ones we haven't killed
will love us all their lives

And we'll honor our commitment
honor our commitment
Even if the world goes up
in a smoke of a mushroom cloud

Honor our commitment
honor our commitment
Get buried with our brothers
in one great communal shroud

We dream of peace most every night
We talk of peace each day
And we have learned a little game
we'll teach you how to play

Now which hand holds the holy branch (?)
and which hand holds the bomb
you guessed that this one offers peace
and that one drops napalm

And we'll honor our commitment
honor our committment
Even if the world goes up
in a smoke of a mushroom cloud

Honor our commitment
honor our commitment
Get buried with our brothers
in one great communal shroud

You marching intellectuals
you poets and you priests
you mothers with your babes in arms
you long-haired bearded beasts(?)

It's alright when you talk of beauty
love and all of that crap (?)
but when it comes to life and death
you'd better shut your trap

And we'll honor our commitment
honor our commitment
Even if the world goes up
in a smoke of a mushroom cloud

Honor our commitment
honor our commitment
Get buried with our brothers
in one great communal shroud
