 Barenaked Ladies Lyrics

Fun and Games

 

We sent in the army

They sounded alarms we

Saw it coming from a mile away.

We kept it off radar

Because 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 and games

We're just pulling legs

We knew this barrel of fun

Would be a powderkeg

 

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 and games

We're just pulling legs

We knew this barrel of fun

Would be a powderkeg

 

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

a new salute is genuflected

a gallup poll will be respected

gallows pole will be erected

all this will go undetected

 

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 and games

We're just pulling legs

We knew this barrel of fun

Would be a powderkeg

 

Oh yeah....
