Reisa L. Gerber – Drafting Is A Form Of Slavery********* lyrics

This is dedicated to my mom, Phyllis.
She told her misinformed middle child Reisa
That in The United States, the draft is not
Legal anymore! So what's with the invountary
Cry to Washington?

Drafting Is A form of Slavery

Over in a war somewhere,
Corporals are working late-
Left their lives up to fate,
To keep the people safe-

He said, "I will not fight to kill my brother
And I will not die to hurt my mother-
I would not like to harm another, man.
Drafting is a form of slavery. "

My son, he died in bravery-
But drafting is a form of slavery
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
I'm running off to Canada.


My son, he died for freedom's sake-
But before he could enjoy it,
His life was taken.
Sweet young men with hearts of gold,
Carry rifles on their shoulders.
