From the recording The Morning Reign Tapes 1966-1971
Everybody’s goin’ round, mixed up like never before
War is what the world’s for, keeps screwin’ up my mind!
I can’t think of a better way to end my troubles for today
Than with a hit
People asking everywhere, “Hey Dad! How can’t you be aware?
Little children everyday, throwin’ all their lives away!
Be leavin’ soon to fight your war
But first I gotta run and score!
Be right back
How can you claim to see? The things I see are hard for me!
Lord gotta get’em all undone!
It’s likely that in time our message
will be read
But a cat I knew from Timbuctoo
became a real head
His US life became a drag
He pledged unlegiance to the flag
Some of us gotta GIVE UP!!!
