The Lyrics

So we'd like to know where you got the potion
Said we'd like to know where you got the potion
To make the nukes, to make the nukes baby
make the nukes, just hand the stuff over
make the nukes, don't make your nukes baby
Make the nukes

Ever since our disarming talks began
Your talk has been a lot of very hot wind
And your arms have pointed over the rolling sea
There's always been a chilly distance between you and me

You've got em pointing over the ocean
And that conjurs up alot of angst and bad emotion

So we'd like to know if you've got a notion
Said we'd like to know if you've got a notion
To nix the nukes, just scrap your nukes, baby
Nix the nukes, don't tip the deal over
nix the nukes, just nix the nukes baby
Nix the nukes

Up to now we've weathered every storm
But your weapons making causes us much alarm
Oh we need to get some promises from you
Just sign here on the dotted line and we will shake hands, too

Our trust is like a slippery lotion
We are skeptical, we'll verify your word and devotion

So we'd like to know if you've got the notion
Said we'd like to know if you've got the notion
To nix the nukes
Nix the nukes
Nix the Nukes
Nix the nukes
Nix the nukes

I sang right along with the OS (which I cannot stand) and, found your parody to be much, much better written than the OS....555

My thoughts exactly. As the Reaganites on Free Republic are saying, "Verify, don't trust."

I agree, Righty --- when it comes to WMD's, verification is essential. Royce, this is a brilliantly clever choice of song/group for this particular parody --- it's so incongruous to imagine the smiling, disco-stepping Hues Corporation singing about nukes!
John Jenkins - September 23, 2005 - Report this comment
I like the way you let the reader guess whether this is about North Korea, Iran, or just nations who have that capability in general. It seems like this is probably about nuclear nations in general, and very well done.
