When Ya Get Drafted Letra

Are you believing the morning papers?
War is coming back in style
There's generals here, advisers there
And Russians nibbling everywhere
The chessboard's filling up with red
We make more profits when we blow off their heads

Economy is looking bad, lLet's start another war (when ya get drafted!)
Fan the fires of racist hatred, we want total war (when ya get drafted!)

Drooling fingers, panic buttons
Playing with missiles like they're toys
There's easy money, easy jobs
Especially when you build the bombs
That blow big cities off the map
Just guess who profits when we build 'em back up

Yeah, what Big Business wants Big Business gets, it wants a war (when ya get drafted!)
Trilateral Commission goonies laugh and scheme for more (when ya get drafted!)

Call the Army, call the Navy, stocked with kids from slums (when ya get drafted!)
If you can't afford a slick attorney we might make you a spy

Forget your demonstrations, kids today sit on their ass (when ya get drafted!)
Just a six-pack and you're happy we're prepared for when ya get drafted
When ya get drafted!
