Lyrics

MILITARY WORLD c.EHR2004
(BLESS THE TROOPS AND GET THEM HOME SAFELY!)
(battle hymn opening )

Way up People
Everybody back home
we re everyday boys and girls
we re in the MILITARY WORLD
the heat and dust
ain?t hardly nothing for us
it was much worse than this
on the blippin? school bus

LISTEN UP !
Usama ben laden and all of your boys
I been shootin all of the squirrels and all of my toys
LISTEN UP !
off Uncle Mike?s porch
since I was only four
so c mon down ya ll
and we ll give you some more

We re Jose and tashika and
Jessica John and Jane
and we re proud to serve
in America's name
we re doin our best
we re meeting the test
we re everyday boys and girls
we re in the MILITARY WORLD

chorus: WAY UP
WAY UP BOYS
WE HATE WAR
BUT WE RE KEEPING SCORE

HEY NOW
HEY HEY NOW
LET THE FLAG UNFURL
WE RE IN THE MILITARY WORLD

chorus: WAY UP
WAY UP BUOYS

BUT WE RE KEEPING SCORE
HEY NOW
HEY HEY NOW
LET THE FLAG UNFURL
WE RE IN THE MILITARY WORLD

we re coming for you al quayda
we re going to hunt you down
pre empting all the terror
you ll never get to our town
(NO MORE !)
we re using all this ammo
and air and ground support
cause this ain't no party
no rich kid's sport

we re the sons and daughters of
Dhnang and Quangtree
and the grandkids of
Normandy and TokoRi

We ve had to fight bad guys
Most all of our lives
in the hood On the block and
In every small town dive

Momma and the kids
Are depending on us
And soon we ll be coming home
On the Freedom Bus
we re doin our job
we re goin to bring the peace
protect all our people
we re here for world peace
We re oklahoma, St louis and LA
portland queens and philadelphia pa
detroit atlanta fort myers and the BRonx
If youre with us, c'mon americans honk

WAY UP BOYS
WE HATE WAR
BUT WE RE KEEPING SCORE
