Just Another War - Paul Kaplan

    The bitter snows of June across the dock are thundering
    Like bullets from a gun
    For seven frozen weeks this soldier has been wondering
    Will I ever see the sun?

    Now you can call me "Pete" or you can call me "Pedro"
    What's the difference in a name?
    One leader calls them "Falklands" the other says "Malvinas"
    To them both it's just a game.

    They say, "It's wart wart wart
    It's just another war
    It's not the end of the world."
    But if there's one too many wars
    Then there won't be any more
    No more wars, women, men, boys, or girls

    The politicians cheered and waved us into battle
    To save the national pride
    But they never breathed the smoke or heard the cannons rattle
    Or took a bullet in the side.

    Governments, flags, borders all are fleeting
    In an hour they disappear.
    But somehow the drums of war never stop their beating
    Year after bloody year.

    [Repeat Chorus]
