They say from acorns great oak trees do grow
And from evil man the genocide does flow
From the expenditure the shock waves spread
And the innocents in masses are easily led
It don’t really matter if it’s communist red
Or whether its fascism that causes the fatal blow to the head
America still don’t realise its mistake in ‘Nam
But they were not on the wrong end of the napalm
They still carry on their search for power and glory
Just another chapter in man’s story
Across the world, they rear their ugly heads
Across the world in bloodshed red
The story begins to wear thin
They say its in the name of law
Will Vietnam be the forerunner to El Salvador?
Another nine years of killings, injuries and rapes
This year’s winner is the Watergate tapes
And this year’s Kissingers a man called Haig
And the descendants have all caught the red, white and blue plague
