The Lyrics

As I was watching CNN one day
I saw a man with big ears in a suit saying we must go to war with Iraq
And I said

Chorus:
Does anybody really know what's going on? (no)
Does anybody really know? (what's going on?)
Since North Korea has a bomb (oh, no)
They are more dangerous than Saddam

And I was watching CNN one day
General Colin Powell declared that Iraq will not cooperate with the UN
And I said

Chorus:
Does anybody really know what's going on? (no)
Does anybody really know? (what's going on?)
Since North Korea has a bomb (oh, no)
They are more dangerous than Saddam

And I was watching CNN one day
Being overloaded by news stories trying to entertain
oh, so I just don't know,
I just don't know
And I said, yes I said

Background Vocal
People asking questions
Don't know who they should trust
Don't know who they are
Can't see past the next day
Can't think about the future at all
Have no ambition to look ahead
Just sit around, sit around, and think why

Chorus:
Does anybody really know what's going on? (no)
Does anybody really know? (what's going on?)
Since North Korea has a bomb (oh, no)
They are more dangerous than Saddam

There's an old saying: "Somebody knows what's going on. This man must be stopped!" Good job.
