Military Industrial Blues

I’ve got the military industrial blues

Feelin’ it down to my Italian leather shoes

I got that fat government weapons contract

At my fancy wine cave lobbyist bivouac

 

Halliburton was just the beginning

The Prez says that some of us are winning

Gotta love the corporate socialism

The wealthy rule under this fascism

 

I’ve got the military industrial blues

Murdoch’s channel brings fiction to the news

Hannity pounds on the evil democrats

And vilifies the Ukrainian diplomats

 

My G-O-P friends will always start a war

So I can send gobs of money offshore

It started with Reagan’s new morning

We laughed at Eisenhower’s warning

 

We sit back and watch the bombs fly

Knowing that many people will die

The battles are fought on foreign land

But not where I work on my suntan

 

I’ve got the military industrial blues

With my friends in office I can’t lose

My lawyer claims I’m protecting the flag

We’ve got the next election in the bag
