Barenaked Ladies – Fun & Games lyrics

We sent in the army
They sounded alarms
We saw it coming from a mile away
We kept it off radar
'Cause we had to say our
Intentions were to save the day

Why did you fail to see?

It was a gag
It was all for a laugh
They were shocked and they were awed and they were blown in half
Fun and games
We were just pulling legs
We knew this barrel of fun would be a powder keg

We kept it all long-range
And made a regime change
You'd have thought it would have been a gas
And when it got ugly
We sat around smugly
Because you bought our little joke en masse

Don't look at me that way

It was a gag
It was all for a laugh
We knew your sons and daughters would be blown in half
Fun and games
We were just pulling legs
We knew this barrel of fun would be a powder keg

Put a smile on
We're the ones that you selected
Leave that dial, son
Because we just got re-elected
In a while our bill of rights will be rejected, and all the blame will be deflected, the forests will be unprotected, the nation's poor will be neglected, creation myth is resurrected, the new salute is genuflected, the Gallup poll will be respected, a gallows pole will be erected
And all this will go undetected

And while you all slumbered
We sat and crunched numbers
Of all the casualties we could afford
There's no need to draft them
You could hear us laugh then
The poor and black all need their room and board

Did I say that out loud?
It was a gag
It was all for a laugh
And now our very nation has been blown in half
Fun and games
We were just pulling legs
We knew this barrel of fun would be a powder keg
