Skumdum – War Is Money lyrics

In the papers we can read
About the bombs falling down
Killing men, women and children
Destroying town by town
That's good news my friend

On the centrefold they show us
A picture of poor tom
He lost one of his arms
It was blown of by a bomb
That's great news oh yes

War is money
With pictures of our tears
War is money
They feed on our fear
War is money
They know it all so well
War is money
Let's bomb them all to hell

A paper show us pictures
From a terrorist attack
Fifteen mutilated bodies
Are lined up on their back
That's good news oh yes

On the centerfold you read
About a girl who just turned nine
She'll never run again
Cause she stepped on a landmine
I tell you my friends that's great for the economy
