Daddy can I have a war?
I had no army before
Let me finish off what you never did
And sell it off for the highest bid

Maybe maybe maybe
The time has come
To spare the mother's babies
Who'll come back numb

Daddy can I have a war?
Our hardware must be paid for
Military mamas dishing the lead
The same hands that tuck 'em in bed

Maybe maybe maybe
The time is here
To spare the father's children
Who'll disappear

Daddy can I have a war?
Because I speak for the Lord
We must remember to preach
(Except turn the other cheek)
