Not So Much an Anti-War as a Pro-Love Song

The President's lying on the radio
The Veep's lying on TV
Why not let go of that remote control
and come do some lying to me?
All this talk about going to war
Tell me, what are they thinking of?
In a minute we could all be shown the door
Let's spend it making love

Rummy wants more of my hard-earned dime
To blow up our foe du jour
His missiles and bombs and guns and mines
Are not the fireworks I prefer
All this talk about going to war
Tell me, what are they thinking of?
In a minute we could sleep with the dinosaurs
Let's spend it making love

I don't care much about strategic position
and who's got what on whose borders
Let's say I play the patient while you play physician
Let's see what the doctor orders

Now Ashcroft thinks he's Moses
Bringing law for us from on high
I think that "Whoa– smell the roses"
Is a good rule for living by
All this talk about going to war
Tell me, what are they thinking of?
In a minute we could swim on that farther shore
Let's spend it making love
