The Wheels Of The Pentagon

Don't you wonder
When will it stop
The wheels of the Pentagon
They roll in London
And Lebanon
They just go on and on

I was talkin' with a friend of mine
He left his legs back in Vietnam
And to this day, he don't understand
Why he gave away his legs to Uncle Sam

The brass now they don't give a damn
They ain't got answers, they've just got plans
To overthrow some foreign land
They'll sell away our souls
To maintain the status quo


I know a woman who's only son
Lost his life in Lebanon
She shakes her fists and she bites her tongue
All the words are in her eyes
They just can't be disguised


BREAK (On Chorus)

My mother's husband he got blown away
On the day that I was born
She said now when my baby comes of age
I will not let them ship him off to war

Now come on women all over the world
You have suffered too much pain
Put an end to all this senseless war
Don't let your sons and daughters
Don't let them die in vain


In Nicaragua and Panama
They just go on and on
Brazil and China in Babalon
They just go on and on
They rollin' in Russia, Berlin and Bonn
They just go on and on
In California right here at home
They just go on and on
They just go on and on
And on and on...
