The Lyrics

The Pentagon has confirmed that as many as 16% of the cluster bomblets (designed to disperse in midair and then explode to cause maximum casualties) do not, in fact, explode on impact. Their bright yellow color attracts Iraqi children, with predictable consequences. Human rights groups estimate that between 5,000 and 10,000 civilians have been killed in this war so far, the highest number since Vietnam.
Yellow Is The Color

Yellow is the color of the cluster bombs
They're exploding
Yes, they're live
They're exploding
In kids' eyes
That's a crime (That's a crime)
That's a crime (That's a crime)
That I detest

Red is the color of George Bush's hands
He's a moron
And he lies
He's a moron
And he lies
That's a crime (That's a crime)
That's a crime (That's a crime)
That I detest

Gray is the color of the Navy ship
It's a backdrop
For his lies
It's a backdrop
For his lies
That's a crime (That's a crime)
That's a crime (That's a crime)
That I detest

Green is the color of Dick Cheney's eyes
Halliburton's
Friend for life
Halliburton's
Friend for life
That's a crime (That's a crime)
That's a crime (That's a crime)
That I detest

Black is the color worn by husbands and wives
They're in mourning
No surprise
They're in mourning
No surprise
War's a crime (War's a crime)
War's a crime (War's a crime)
I must protest
