A War Story

How's a guy 
supposed to 
get a good shot 
at the enemy 

with Old Glory 
wavin' in his face 
and the barrel 
of an  AK-47 
creepin' up 
his back side 

I don't know soldier 
What's a little war any way 
but a a fat chance 
for the NRA 
to finally get their 
rocks off 
on the latest war toys 

Keep your head down 
Believe every shot you hear 
and don't forget to change 
yr underwear 
cuz ya never know Johnny boy 
ya never know
