We sent in the army, they sounded alarms, we
Saw it coming from a mile away
We kept it off radar 'cause we had to say our
Intentions were to save the day

Why did you fail to see?

It was a gag, it was all for a laugh
And they were shocked and they were awed
And they were blown in half
Fun & games, we were just pulling legs
We knew this barrel of fun would be a powder keg

We kept it all long-range and made a regime change
You'd have thought it would have been a gas
But when it got ugly, we sat around smugly
Because you bought our little joke en masse

Don't look at me that way

It was a gag, it was all for a laugh
We knew your sons and daughters
Would be blown in half
Fun & games, we were just pulling legs
We knew this barrel of fun would be a powder keg

Put a smile on, we're the ones that you selected
Leave that dial, son because we just got re-elected
In a while our 'Bill of Rights' will be rejected

And all the blame will be deflected
The forests will be unprotected
The nation's poor will be neglected
Creation myth is resurrected

The new salute is genuflected
The gallop poll will be respected
Gallows pole will be erected
And all this will go undetected

And while you all slumbered
We sat and crunched numbers
Of all the causalities we could afford
There's no need to draft them
You could hear us laugh then
The poor and black, all need the room and board

Did I say that out loud?

It was a gag, it was all for a laugh
And now our very nation has been blown in half
Fun & games, we were just pulling legs
We knew this barrel of fun would be a powder keg

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
We knew this barrel of fun would be a powder keg
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, it's a powder keg

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
