"Dangerous Babies"

© 2006 by Andersen Silva

Policies made, some are unmade, too.
     The men at the top don't give a damn about you.
Don't you dare mess with them, they're accustomed to power;
     The U.S. President is always man of the hour.

And he looks so cute,
     In his three-piece suit...

CHORUS:
We give these dangerous babies
     The most dangerous toys!
Convinced that their way's right
     No matter what it destroys.


It's easy to bomb when you don't see the faces.
     It's easy to send death to such far-away places.
Diplomacy is harder, and it's frustrating, too,
     And that's why evildoers kill people like me and you.

Who's right and who's wrong
     Doesn't matter for long...

CHORUS

If you won't play by their rules, the babies get upset.
     They never learned to share, they take all they can get.
Throw their toys in your face if they can't be in charge,
     If you ask me, I think a time-out is looming large...

He doesn't look so cute
     In the emperor's suit...

CHORUS:
We give these dangerous babies
     The most dangerous toys!
Convinced that their way's right
     No matter what it destroys.

Shake your rattles, little babies,
     Go on and make your noise.
The day is gonna come
     When we take away your toys...
