The Lyrics

Written by Jill Jackson and Sy Miller in 1955, the original song was immortalized during the Vietnam peace movement of the 1960s. It has been performed by numerous well-know artists.
Let there be War on earth,
and let it begin with me.
Let there be War on earth;
Let's shatter world harmony.

Let's honor my father
and murder thy brother
and spread Christianity.
Let there be War on earth,
and let it begin with me.

Let there be War on earth,
and let it begin with me.
Punish the poor on earth--
Let bombs shout their agony.

Damn the patience
of the United Nations
for stalling what's meant to be.
Let there be War on earth,
and let it begin with me.

Let there be War on earth,
and let it begin with me.
Of weapons, we have no dearth--
Our strikes will pound mercilessly.

Mass-destruction device?
You better think twice!
We're defending our monopoly.
Let there be War on earth,
and let it begin with me.

Let there be War on earth,
and let it begin with me.
Let's show what democracy's worth.
(Never mind who elected me!)

You can call it hypocrisy--
I say democracy.
I'm free to do as I please.
Let there be War on earth,
and let it begin with me.

Let War begin with me;
It's my vote that matters now.
"You'll see what it means to be free!"--
to Saddam I make this vow.

If the French and the Germans
won't heed my sermons,
I'll make them our next enemy.
Let there be War on earth,
and let it begin with me.

Let there be War on earth,
and let it begin with me.
Should news at home get worse,
the focus elsewhere must be.

To take each moment,
divert each moment,
away from the economy...
Let there be War on earth,
and let it begin with me.

Let there be War on earth,
and let it begin with me.
To a new regime we'll give birth
in whose oil we'll share eternally.

The meaning of "W"--
don't let it trouble you--
in the rocket's red glare you will see....
Let there be War on earth--
It's what's best for the Bush family!
2003 D. O'Hoyt

I think this D. O'Hoyt must be a relative of mine. Who is D. O'Hoyt, and how can I get in touch with this person? Thanks - Jim O'Hoyt
