war lyrics – jonatha brooke

every morning i get up and i watch the war, watch the war
and every morning it upstages all my favorite shows
donahue, hogan’s heroes

it’s the american way, the new world order
we hold these truths to be self-evident
in the american day, you must give and i shall take
and i will tell you what is moral and what’s just

because i want
because i will
because i can
so will i kill

every morning i get up and i raise the flag
salute the monument of those who gave their lives
and i guess war’s okay, it’s just a little inconvenient
but it’s better than a video-game, it’s better than the movies

’cause it’s the american way, a new world order
we hold these truths to be self-evident
in the american day, you must give and i shall take
and i will tell you what is moral and what’s just

because i want
because i will
because i can
so will i kill

every morning i get up and i watch the war
watch the war, watch the war
and every morning it upstages everything i know

’cause it’s the american way, the new world order
we hold these truths to be self-evident
in the american day, you must give and i shall take
i will tell you what is moral and what’s just

because i want
because i will
because i can
so will i

because i want
because i will
because i can
so will i
(oh, say can you see)

because i can
so will i
