Lyrics by Ben Grosscup

To tune of Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho

We say NATO’s got to go, got to go, got to go
We say NATO’s got to go
So the people can live in peace

From Kosovo to Afghanistan
To Africa’s Libyan shores
The bureaucrats of NATO
Just keep making war

They say that we’re in danger
So we need to buy more arms
But the threat of climate chaos
Doesn’t seem to raise alarm

They’re in Poland and Romania
And they’re spreading to Brazil
It’s a scheme to sell more weapons
And leave the whole world with the bill

We can’t afford good housing
We can’t afford healthcare
We can’t afford clean water
Cuz the military took our share

NATO has been sowing
Fear and death and pain
When we get rid of NATO
The people can only gain
