This song is by Pete Seeger and appears on the album Wimoweh and Other Songs of Freedom and Protest (1968).

And we have to do or die.
One improvment then another,
They'll be paid for by and by.
Modern bombs are sure to carry
Loads or glory joy and thrill!

All the dead our money kills.
Never mind the widows weeping.
Disgregard the orphans cry.
When God wakes the dead and sleeping,
