  • Lyrics: So you are the ugly American Yes, I think we have seen you before You're the one with the crucifix nailed to the wall And the daughter you think is a whore You could search for a year on a map of the world And never find Jerusalem And you say if English was good enough for Jesus By God, it's good enough for them So cheer for the war / Knowing God's on our side Let's give 'em what for / Bring the dead home with pride They made you a King / They gave up their lives So you are the media moguls Yes, I think we have seen you before It's a brave new world order we've entered Since 1984 You won't hear this song on the radio You won't hear the news on the news When they televise the revolution It will be on the day that they lose So cheer for the war / Knowing God's on our side Let's give 'em what for / Bring the dead home with pride We've seen this before / We've heard all your lies Was your father too cruel Was your mom too uptight Were you disappointed On your wedding night Or did God really tell you To hasten the end of all things Send all the Christians to Heaven What does that make you King of Kings? So cheer for the war / Knowing God's on our side Let's give 'em what for / Bring the dead home with pride All our daughters and sons / Who fought for our side This is your holy war / And our children who died So cheer for the war
