Can you hear the little girls asking
Daddy where have all the little boys gone
The little girls, they ask me
Daddy where have all the little boys gone
They don't tease us in classroom
They don't meet us at the mall

The little boys are fighting
They have left us all behind
The little boys are dying
To preserve our way of life
It's our patriotic duty
To make sweet love tonight

See these lovely lonesome ladies
They don't ignore me anymore
All these lonely lovely ladies
Keep on kockin' on my door
I'm the only game in town
And it's so easy to score

Now i know why dirty old men are always pushin' for war
Now i know why dirty old men are always pushin' for war
I've become a dirty old man with a hard-on for war

    General CommentNo comments, seriously? This is one of the best newer Mudhoney songs. The idea is that dirty old men start wars so that when soldiers go to war, they can sleep with their girlfriends.
