"Burn" as written by and Bruce Cockburn....
Look away across the bay
Yankee gunboat come this way
Uncle Sam gonna save the day
Come tomorrow we all gonna pay

And it's burn baby burn
When am I going to get my turn

Burn baby burn
When am I going to get my turn

Something dead under the bed
Local diplomats hang their heads
Never mind what the government said
They're either lying or they've been misled

And it's burn baby burn
When am I going to get my turn

Burn baby burn
When am I going to get my turn

Philippines was yesterday
Santiago and Greece today
How would they ever make the late news pay
If they didn't have the CIA?

And it's burn baby burn
When am I going to get my turn

Burn baby burn
When am I going to get my turn

Here it comes, the loaded gun
Must keep the Commies on the run
You'd buy or bury everyone
For liberty and life
And just plain fun

And it's burn baby burn
When am I going to get my turn

Burn baby burn
When am I going to get my turn

Burn baby burn
When am I going to get my turn

Burn baby burn
When am I going to get my turn

Burn baby burn
When am I going to get my turn

Burn baby burn
When am I going to get my turn
