про игру в войну

Меня страшно прет эта песенка.

TV’s on, the favorite son is
watchin how the west was won
daddy, please, a plastic gun
get brother one for twice the fun

little camo helmet-heads
makin brave and playin dead
missiles made of gingerbread
dollars on the dime

hey ho, so it goes, the point of sale, the puppet show
the merchant kings of war and woe have turned their hands to labor
sound out the trumpet noise, the cannons bark and jump for joy
someone’s dread and darlin boy has fallen on his saber

another world across the sea
home for little busy bees
sweatin in some factory
hurry, please, more of these

action dolls with laser sights
robot planes that shoot at night
faster, kid, and get it right
they’re rollin down the line

hey ho…

these days the spin machine
is always on the silver screen
secret plots and submarines
foreign fiends and magazines

wave the flag, watch the news
tell us we can count on you
mom and dad are marchin too
children, step in time

hey ho…

bring your kids and coddled pets
bouncin babes in bassinets
we’ll play a game with tanks and jets
better yet bayonets!

marchin bands and color guards
funerals in your own backyard
don’t forget your credit card
johnny, hold the line

hey ho…

      1. С Джоан Баэз кто только не пел:) Я так понимаю, что там вообще была по сути одна большая тусовка где все друг друга знали и где-нибудь да играли вместе.
