The Marching Song Of The Covert Battalions

Here we are, seeking out the reds
Trying to keep the communists in order
Just remember when you're sleeping in your beds
They're only two days drive from the Texas border.

How can a country large as ours
Be scared of such a threat
Well if they won't work for us
They're against us you can bet

They may be sovereign countries
But you folks at home forget
That they all want what we've got
But they don't know it yet

We're making the world safe for capitalism
Here we come with our candy and our guns
And our corporate muscle marches in behind us
For freedom's just another word for nothing left to sell
And if you want narcotics we can get you those as well

We help the multi-nationals
When they cry out protect us
The locals scream and shout a bit
But we don't let that affect us

We're here to lend a helping hand
In case they don't elect us
How dare they buy our products
But still they don't respect us

We're making the world safe for capitalism
If you thought the army
Was here protecting people like yourself
I've some news for you
We're here to defend wealth

Away with nuns and bishops
The Good Lord will help those that help themselves
I've some news for you
We're here to defend wealth
We're making the world safe for capitalism.
