You Beat Up Our Gang

You Beat Up Our Gang

(Tune:  Loch Lomond)

You beat up our gang and we beat up your gang and

You take revenge in the morning

Then we take our turn and¬†there’s always a return

To the killing that comes when we’re warring.


O we’re told what to think and before we even blink,

We’re pumped and we’re hot to be in it

For glory and gore just another ugly war

With no reason why to begin it.


O it’s not for the good and it’s not for the right and

It’s not for our god, queen or honour

It’s just so the arms dealers make a lot more dough

So they hope wars go on forever
