Made in the USA

But there is cause for disilusionment

Made in the USA


Well, we're winning another contest
It's the race to end all war
We're providing the ammunition
Now, who could ask for more?
But, to put an end to war

Yeah, we're making up all the weapons
They're made in the USA
To sell to peace-loving countries
Who have greenbacks to pay
Yeah, who have greenbacks to pay

But there's cause for disillusionment
As our children go to war
To protect our national interests
Or to even out the score
To a foreign land as distant
As is Washington D.C.
When the bodies we are sent back
On that frightful day will be,
Maimed, destroyed or tortured,
In a not so peaceful way,
By a bullet that's been branded,

Made in the USA, hey, hey,
Made in the USA, hey, hey,
Made in the USA, hey, hey,
Made in the USA, hey, hey,

Well, we're winning another contest
Democracy rules the day
Entitling the world to weapons
Made in the USA

We're the leaders of the free nations
Peacemakers here to stay
Promoting world peace with weapons
Made in the USA

But there is cause for disillusionment....
