WE SHOULD JUST STAY OUT

WE SHOULD JUST STAY OUT
(To tune of “We Can Work it Out,” by John Lennon and Paul McCarthy”)

We can’t see it their way
But decide to intervene, march into crisis spots
When we see it our way
We don’t understand and so we can’t connect the dots
We should just stay out
We should just stay out

 All those good intentions
Unintended consequences always come between
Facts that no one mentions
Leave the nation building to the people on the scene
We should just stay out
We should just stay out

The world is more complex and if we choose
To poke our nose in foreign doors
We’ll be a stranger in a strange land, whose
Nose has been broken before

Are the people free there?
In Afghanistan, and Viet Nam and in Iraq
Didn’t need a be there
Don’t we have great problems of our own here to attack?
We should just stay out
We should just stay out
