"Violence Is Golden" as written by and Fogerty....
[Chorus]
Violence, (oh no!) is golden.
Ah!
Violence, (oh no!) is golden.
Ah!

Pass another plate of shrapnel,
Sprinkle it with TNT,
Gotta have another grenade salad,
Split it with your enemy.
Gotta sell another Uzi,
Maybe couple 44 Mags,
Got a wife and a kid to support,
And a payment on the Jag.
Won't you try this personal bazooka,
Make you feel like a man,
Show the little girls what's what
By the size of the thunder in your hands.
Take a pocketful of Teflon bullets,
Maybe 'nother Tommy gun,
Gotta keep stuff movin' out the door,
Got a business to run.
Take it from me, son
You can have a lot of fun!

[Chorus: x2]

Pass another fleet of B-L bombers,
Grab an M-16,
Buildin' Chevy's was never the fun
Of buildin' up the war machine.
Got a rocket in my pocket and it's ready,
Do you think we can deal?
Got a year-end sale goin' on,
You can see the appeal,
'Cause I'm sellin' both sides of the fence,
That be the name of the game,
I don't care about your silly little struggle,
Money's colored all the same.
Take a handful of Star Wars missiles,
Maybe super laser gun,
Gotta keep stuff movin' out the door,
Got a business to run.
Take it from me, son
We can have a lot of fun!

[Chorus: x3]

    General CommentThere's money to be made in war !
    The title is a word-play on the old Tremeloes hit "Silence Is Golden".
