Subject: The 12 Days of Peacetime?
From: GUEST,HootenannyGuy

Surely someone out there in Mudcatland can help with this query:

Back in the 1960's I heard a song called "The Twelve Days of
>Peacetime." I am trying to find the lyrics to it. It was sung to
>the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas. It Began, "On the first
>day of peacetime, my leader said to me, There'll be no world war
>three." Other lines were "Bigger better bombs", "Don't sign the
>test ban", and at the point where you'd hear "Five Gold Rings" it
>was "Rearm Germany!" It was a satirical political hoot sung at the
>National Music Camp at Interlochen, Michigan by one of the
>Counselors there named Ira Kaufman.
Thanks in advance
