This song is by UB40 and appears on the album UB40 Present The Dancehall Album (1998).

Queen and country, freedom cry
God and glory, do or die
Propaganda, spin and lie
Who are you fighting for?

You do the shooting they do the looting
You do the killing they do the drilling
You do the dying they do the lying
All the way to the bank, you can hear them crying

Sell the arms, suppress the truth
Create the fear, invent the proof
Wave the flag don't tell the youth
Who they are fighting for

You do the shooting they do the looting
You do the killing they do the drilling
You do the dying they do the lying
All the way to the bank, you can hear them crying

Weapon dealing, profiteering
Country stealing, ethnic clearing
Asset stripping, oil dripping
Architects of war

You do the shooting they do the looting
You do the killing they do the drilling
You do the dying they do the lying
All the way to the bank, you can hear them crying
