  • Party at ground zero
    A "be " movie starring you
    And the world will turn to flowing
    Pink vapor stew

    Johnny, go get your gun
    For the commies are in our hemisphere today
    Ivan, go fly your MIG
    For the Yankee imperialists have come to play

    Johnny goes to Sally`s house to kiss her goodbye
    But Daddy says to spend the night
    They make love `till the early morning light
    For tomorrow Johnny goes to fight

    Johnny, Ivan, Ian, everybody come along
    For our nations need new heroes
    Time to sing a new war song

    Party at ground zero
    A "be " movie starring you
    And the world will turn to flowing
    Pink vapor stew

    Please do not fear `cause Fishbone is here to say (say what?)
    Just have a good time the stop sign is far away
    The toilet has flushed and green lights are a ghost
    And drop drills will be extinct
    Speed racer cloud has come
    They know not what they`ve done
    Sin has just won
    The planet is a crumb

    Party at ground zero
    A "be " movie starring you
    And the world will turn to flowing
    Pink vapor stew Writer/s: ANGELO CHRISTOPHER MOORE, JOHN NORWOOD FISHER, KENDALL JONES, KENDALL REY JONES
