The western world has a common dedication
To keep free people from red domination
Maybe you can't vote, boy, but man your battle stations
Or there'll be no need for votin' in future generations.
So over and over again you keep sayin' it's the end
But I say you're wrong, we're just on the DAWN OF CORRECTION
There are buttons to push in two mighty nations
But whose crazy enough to risk annihilation
The buttons are there to insure negotiation
So don't be afraid boy it's our only salvation.
Now you tell me that marches won't bring integration
But look what it's done for the voter registration
Be thankful our country allows demonstrations
Instead of condemning make some recommendations
I don't understand the cause of your aggravation
You mean to tell me boy it's not a better situation.
You missed all the good in your evaluation
' What about the things that deserve commendation
Where there once was no cure there's vaccination
Where there once was a desert there's vegetation
Self government's replacing colonization
What about the Peace Corps. organization
Don't forget the work of the United Nations.
