War Baby
I was born in a war
So they call me a war baby
I was born in a war
And it don't make me war crazy

And the guns start to roar
As the fire sweeps the streets (crazy)
Why can't we walk this road together
And keep our children safe and sure?

War, war baby

And the war made us poor
Made our future unsure, hazy
Why don't we run this race together
And keep our children safe and sure?

But the arms race is on
And the tanks all roll out
All the guns are in place
We just wait for the shout to arms, to arms

And the guns start to roar
From the ship to the shore, (crazy)
And the bombs start to fall
As we crouch in the hall

As they bust through the breach
Out on Omaha Beach, yeah
Why can't we run this road together
Why can't we hope to find a cure

But the arms race is on
And the tanks all roll out
All the guns are in place
As we wait for the shout

And the army sweeps on and on
And the navy sails out
As we rush to the edge
As we wait for the shout to arms, to arms

War, war baby
