Conquistador of Mexico, the Zulu and the Navaho
The Belgians in the Congo, short memory
Plantation in Virginia, the Raj in British India
The deadline in South Africa, short memory
The story of El Salvador, the silence of Hiroshima
Destruction of Cambodia, short memory

And in the tents new rifles hey short memory

If you read the history books you'll see
The same things happen again and again
Repeat repeat short memory they've all got it
