lyrics

When you’re ready for adventure
If you’re looking for some fun
Let’s play army
Watch the neighbors run
Load gear in the car
Pretend it’s a jeep
Little Bobby’s got a handgun
Sit him in the backseat

Let’s start a war
It’s something to do
In with the old
Out with the new

We’ll fashion ammo
From peace plowshares
Go to the dark side of town
Catch them unaware
Plain-clothes camouflage
Will distract the stares
Target the oldsters
They’re so easy to scare

Let’s start a war
It’s easy to do
In with the old
Out with the new

At the end of the day
We soldiers will sing
That age-old hymn
Violence settles everything
Bullets and bombs
No hostages to take
Only use ‘em once
Best investment you can make
