If I Had a Rocket Launcher - Bruce Cockburn

    here comes the helicopter -- second time today
    everybody scatters and hopes it goes away
    how many kids they've murdered only god can say
    if i had a rocket launcher...i'd make somebody pay.

    i don't believe in guarded borders and i don't believe in hate
    i don't believe in generals or their stinking torture states
    and when i talk with the survivors of things too sickening to relate
    if i had a rocket launcher...i would retaliate

    on the rio lacantun one hundred thousand wait
    to fall down from starvation -- or some less humane fate.
    cry for guatemala, with a corpse in every gate
    if i had a rocket launcher...i would not hesitate

    i want to raise every voice -- at least i've got to try.
    every time i think about it water rises to my eyes.
    situation desperate echoes of the victims cry
    if i had a rocket launcher...some sonofabitch would die
