Dance of the Knee-Jerk Reactionaries

We don't want another Bay of Pigs 
Hey now, we ain't playin' in the minor leagues 
Next time we better get it right 
Last time we didn't do it right 

We don't want another Viet Nam 
Made a monkey's uncle out of Uncle Sam 
Next time we better get it right 
Last time we didn't do it right 
If we gotta do it 
Then we oughta do it right 

We don't want another Gulf War One 
Where we got it started, didn't get it done 
Next time we better get it right 
Last time we didn't do it right 

We don't want another Black Hawk Down 
Let the local heavies chase us out of town 
Next time we better get it right 
Last time we didn't do it right 
If we gotta do it 
Then we oughta do it right 

[instrumental break] 

We don't want it but we got it now 
And we gotta leave it but we don't know how 
When are we gonna get it right? 
When will we ever get it right? 
If we gotta do it 
Then we oughta do it right!
