Turtles – We Ain't Gonna Party No More lyrics

I heard about a man
Who said
That he found a plan
To end
All the wars of man
But nobody cared

He asked them
To drop their guns
To come home
And love someone
Watch corn
In the morning sun
Plan children
To bear

I was just
A little boy
I've been hearing
Tales of war
How if
We don't make men
Destroy every land
Outside our shore
How will they know
We mean to fight?
For what is worth
Fighting for

I'll never hold a gun
For them against
My brothers
Cross the sea
There's so much work
To do at home
When the mind and soul
Are free
When will they send
My brothers home
So they can be free
With me

You better end
The war
As quick as you can
There's hunger
In America
We need every man
We've got ignorance,
And so much more
If there's one thing
We don't need
It's your damn war

We ain't gonna party
No more
You went to war
And you didn't even
Tell us
We ain't gonna party
No more

We ain't gonna party
No more,
You can't hold up
The flag
And try to lie
Behind it
We ain't gonna party
No more

Oh spacious skies
For waves of grain
Once I pledge
Myself to you
I pledge
To textbooks
Dates and names
And the dreams
I thought came true
How can my daughter
Do the same?
For your red
White and blue

We ain't gonna party
No more
We ain't gonna party
No more
We ain't gonna party
No more
We ain't gonna party
No more
