The Lyrics

Why... ...because I can.
Dddd-Aaaa-Nnnn-Gggg-Eeee-Rrrr
Danger-Dance!

Ah you can go when I want to, You can leave your life behind
Cause soldiers aren't rich, And if they're not rich
Well they're no friends of mine
I say, you can stay cause I'll make you, Sympathy you will never find
And I can make you stay here for another year
This ain't the Texas Air Guard
And you can stay

You can go where I want to, You can leave safety behind
Though soldiers may die, My approval's high
Who cares, if it was a lie
I say you can die if you have to, Though weapons they will never find
And I can act like it was for our security
Leave the real world far behind
And you can die

Danger!

Ah you can stay cause I say so, Fox News lies and so do I
And you will still be here, For at least one more year
I surprised you with that didn't I

I say you can die if you have to, If you leave nobody will
And every time you die, And bodies pile high
Then I'll really feel like a tough guy
I say you can stay, You can stay, everything out of control
You can stay, You can stay, We're lying more day by day
You can stay, You can stay, Everybody's blood on my hands
You can stay, You can stay, Other people taking the chance
Danger dance
Oh well The Danger Dance
Ah Yes The Danger Dance

Dddd-Aaaa-Nnnn-Gggg-Eeee-Rrrr
Danger Dance

You'll come home when I let you, I can waste your life not mine
Although you're hurtin' Not so Halliburton
Who cares if it was for a lie
I say, you can go where I want to, You can leave your life behind
Cause soldiers aren't rich, And if they're not rich
Well they're no friends of mine
I say we can dance, We can dance, Everything out of Control
We can dance, We can Dance, We're lying more day by day
We can dance, We can Dance, Everybody's blood on my hands
We can dance, We can Dance, Other people taking the chance

The Danger Dance
The Danger Dance!

Man... you did well on this but you kinda brought me down from an originally fun song!!! Seriously though, it was a good commentary, not necessarily "funny" but poignant. keep it up.
