Somebody to Bomb

 

To the tune of Jefferson Airplane’s Somebody to Love

 

When the truth is found

To be lies

No gas attack

By Assad’s guys

 

Don't you want somebody to bomb

Don't you need somebody to bomb

Wouldn't you love somebody to bomb

You better find somebody to bomb

 

Now the Afghan gambit's

Almost been played

And the golden eggs

Have all been laid

 

Don't you want somebody to bomb

Don't you need somebody to bomb

Wouldn't you love somebody to bomb

You better find somebody to bomb

 

Hey look, there's ISIS

No it's not Assad

Yeah, but with your head, baby

You can give the nod

 

Don't you want somebody to bomb

Don't you need somebody to bomb

Wouldn't you love somebody to bomb

You better find somebody to bomb

 

Bombs are falling

At your puppet's request

Killing from the air, baby

Is what you do the best

 

Don't you want somebody to bomb

Don't you need somebody to bomb

Wouldn't you love somebody to bomb

You better find somebody to bomb

 

David Martin
