 Hell No! I Won't Go!

You say, "This is my country,
I have the right to dissent!"
You say, "Hell no! I won’t go!"

Yes!  You have a birth right
to dissent, but with that birth
right comes an obligation to
defend this great country you
so freely live in!

Let me ask you, my friend,
if you and I refused to
defend, then who in the
hell shall we send?

When our enemies kill us in
our streets and bomb our
cities, who will defend?
Who will you befriend?

For then you see…
Hell no! You won’t have to go!
For the enemy will be here,
to take your life and cowardly
soul!
