STUDY WAR NO MORE

Goin' to lay down my sword and
  shield,
Down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside;
Goin' to lay down my sword and
  shield,
Down by the riverside, 
And study war no more.

CHORUS:
I ain't gonna study war no more,
I ain't gonna study war no more,
Ain't, gonna study war no more.

Ain't gonna study war no more,
Ain't gonna study war no more,
I ain't gonna study war no more.

2. Goin' to lay down my atom
   bomb...

CHORUS:

3. Goin' to lay down ICBM...

CHORUS:

NO MORE WAR

No more shall we fight their battles,
No more shall we go to war,
O,let the high and mighty slaughter
  one another.
We will wage their wars no more.
NO MORE WAR!

No more shall we make munitions,
No more guns and poison gas;
O,let the high and mighty slaughter
  one another.
No more for the working class.
NO MORE WAR!

No more shall we serve as targets,
No more slay our fellow men.
0, let the high and mighty slaughter
  one another. 
We'll not go to war again.
NO MORE WAR!
 

No more shall we shout their slogans,
No more: now that we're awake.
O, let the high and mighty slaughter
  one another.
Let them taste the hell they make.
NO MORE WAR!

NOT ONE CENT

CHORUS:
Not one cent shall be spent
For any capitalistic war.
We'll spend ev'ry cent we can get
To prevent any capitalistic war.

Bosses expect they can collect
Money for war.
Workers refuse. You've nothing to
   lose.
Keep up that roar!

CHORUS:
 

OVER THERE

Over there, over there
You were born to be killed over there.
It's your patriotic duty
To love each cootie
That bites you when you're lying
   there.

Be a man, join the band,
Dig those pork and beans from a can.
Be a hero, your pulse at zero;
But don't ask for a job
When it's over, over there.
 

THEY'RE TALKING WAR

They're talking war. Who's talking
  war?
The bosses' press. We know what for.
They send us to wallow in mire and
   mud,
While they coin gold out of workers'
   blood.

CHORUS:
Try It again - oh just
Try It again - just once
And we'll reverse our bayonets then.

We want no war. Who wants no war? 
The working class. We want no war.
We're tired of giving our lives in vain.
If they want a war, we will sing this
   refrain.
 
CHORUS:
