MLF Lullaby

Sleep, Baby, sleep,
In peace may you slumber,
No danger lurks,
Your sleep to encumber.
We've got the missiles,
Peace to determine,
And one of the fingers
On the button will be German.
 
Why shouldn't they have
Nuclear warheads?
England says no, but…
They all are soreheads.
I say a bygone
Should be a bygone,
Let's make peace the way we did
In Stanleyville1 and Saigon.
 
Once all the Germans
Were warlike and mean,
But that couldn't happen
Again.
We taught them a lesson
In 1918,
And they've hardly bothered us
Since then.
 
So…
 
…sleep well, my darling,
The sandman can linger,
We know our buddies
Wont't give us the finger,
Heil -hail – the Wehrmacht,
I mean the Bundeswehr,
Hail to our
Loyal ally!
 
M L F2
Will scare Brezhnev,
I hope
He is half as scared
As I.
