"The Marching Song of The Covert Battalions" as written by and Billy Bragg....
Here we areseeking out the reds
Trying to keep the communists in order
Just remember when youâ??re sleeping in your beds
Theyâ??re only two days drive from the texas border

How can a country large as ours
Be scared of such a threat
Well if they wonâ??t work for us
Theyâ??re against us you can bet
They may be sovereign countries
But you folks at home forget
That they all want what weâ??ve got
But they donâ??t know it yet

Tra-la-la-la, Tra-la-la-la, Tra-la-la-la
Weâ??re making the world safe for capitalism

Here we come with our candy and our guns
And our corporate muscle marches in behind us
For freedomâ??s just another word for nothing left to sell
And if you want narcotics we can get you those as well

We help the multi-nationals
When they cry out protect us
The locals scream and shout a bit
But we donâ??t let that affect us
Weâ??re here to lend a helping hand
In case they donâ??t elect us
How dare they buy our products
Yet still they donâ??t respect us

Tra-la-la-la, Tra-la-la-la, Tra-la-la-la
Weâ??re making the world safe for capitalism

If you thought the army
Was here protecting people like yourself
Iâ??ve some news for you
Weâ??re here to defend wealth
Away with nuns and bishops
The good lord will help those that help themselves
Iâ??ve some news for you
Weâ??re here to defend wealth

Tra-la-la-la, Tra-la-la-la, Tra-la-la-la
Weâ??re making the world safe for capitalism
