Jake's War

Look's like Yankee Doodle's on a run
He's gonna take your daughters and your sons
And show them how to shoot a gun
And teach them how to kill someone
Oh surely, he's just out to have some fun
But in the end he eats his young

It is bad enough that he's made a foe
Of all them folks that we don't know
He has sullied up the foreign tide
And taken us all for a ride
Yes, he's just out to have a little fun
But Yankee Doodle eats his young

It's gonna take all the gold
From all the young and all the old
Gonna pay with our daughters and your sons
Just to see the devil's share of everyone
Yes Yankee Doodle's just out having fun
But in the end he eats his young

Like all the many times before
There's been the struggle of the rich and poor
We all want just a little more
And it only takes is another war
Oh Yankee Doodle's just out to have some fun
But don't forget that he eats his young.
