Atomic Energy

This song is by Sir Lancelot and appears on the compilation Atomic Platters: Cold War Music From the Golden Age of Homeland Security (2005).

Some men with brains in their cranium
Took a piece of uranium
They did what other men couldn't do
They split the atom right in two

Now it's up to the people to crusade
To see that no more bombs are made
That it's great force should only be used
For peace and democracy

They took all the you 238 that
They could find in the United States
They gathered it and made it all
Into the size of a billiard ball

Now it's up to the people to crusade
To see that no more bombs are made
That it's great force should only be used
For peace and democracy

Down to the south and west they went
To try out their experiment
To find out what they wanted to know
In the desert of New Mexico

Now it's up to the people to crusade
To see that no more bombs are made
That it's great force should only be used
For peace and democracy

If you should travel out west someday
And happen to stop off in Santa Fe
Just look around and take a stroll
You'll come across a great big hole

Now it's up to the people to crusade
To see that no more bombs are made
That it's great force should only be used
For peace and democracy

Today it's the size of a billiard ball
Tomorrow it'll be the size of city hall
And when they drop it, you will see
The place where this earth used to be

Now it's up to the people to crusade
To see that no more bombs are made
That it's great force should only be used
For peace and democracy

We all can have prosperity
With this atomic energy
The world can have its pork and beans
Or be blown into smithereens

Now it's up to the people to crusade
To see that no more bombs are made
That it's great force should only be used
For peace and democracy
