"Let's Have A War" as written by and Philo Cramer Lee Ving....
[Chorus]
There's so many of us
There's so many of us
There's so many
There's so many of us
There's so many of us
There's so many [Repeat: x2]

Let's have a war
So you can go and die!
Let's have a war!
We could all use the money!
Let's have a war!
We need the space!
Let's have a war!
Clean out this place!

It already started in the city!
Suburbia will be just as easy!

[Chorus]

Let's have a war!
Jack up the Dow Jones!
Let's have a war!
It can start in New Jersey!
Let's have a war!
Blame it on the middle-class!
Let's have a war!
We're like rats in a cage!

It already started in the city!
Suburbia will be just as easy!

[Chorus]

Let's have a war!
Sell the rights to the networks!
Let's have a war!
Let our wallets get fat like last time!
Let's have a war!
Give guns to the queers!
Let's have a war!
The enemy's within!

It already started in the city!
Suburbia will be just as easy!

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentYeah, it's not "There's so many opposites", he mainly says "There's so many of us" but in the final chorus he alternates between "There's so many..." and "There's too many...". It's clear to be heard.

    Lee on SNL:

    "Hello, this song is about how much we love you. This is the... this song is for everyone of you that voted. This is for Republicans and Democrats alike! 1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4!!!"

    Lets have a war
    Till our mothers get fat like last time
    Lets have a war
    Give guns to the queers
    Lets have a war
    The enemy is within

    My InterpretationWell, this lyrics are not that hard to interpret. He has lust for war. There's just to many of us so we have to go and kill each other :) And USA will, of course, profit from it. I kinda agree. A few millions of us less and we can breath easier; we would have more space :D We could use all the money means higher taxes etc...

    Or, he might be sarcastic. World War I and II where just like that. USA wallets got fat, people died, meaning more space for rest etc...

    I really like this song. It's great and also a bit paranoid (We're like rats in a cage!).

    General CommentI thought I heard that too. Well, the damn meaning of this song is obvious, the ulterier motive of war in this song is money and population control

    General CommentIt's simple - everybody wants to blow up New Jersey, even people like me who've never been there :|

    Also a stab at the 'ruling classes' and the whole, detached from reality, concept of them.

    Song MeaningThis is an anti-war song. They're talking about the New World Order. They're talking about population reduction, which is one part of their(NWO) agenda.

    General CommentThis is one of their better songs. The meaning is very obvious as all up to now have pointed out. Its a quality song as opposed to most of their stuff.

    General CommentWhat the fuck? These are the lyrics I sent in a while back, under "Let's Have A War (Actual Lyrics)", yet I get no credit in providing the correct interpretation? Come on.
