Let's Have a War! by Fear

"Let's Have a War" - Fear (1982)

There's so many of us. There's so many of us. There's so many. (4x)

Let's have a war. So you can go die.
Let's have a war. We can all use the break.
Let's have a war. We need the space.
Let's have a war. Clean out this place.

It al-ready started in the city.
Suburbia will be just as easy!

There's so many of us. There's so many of us. There's so many. (4x)

Let's have a war. Jack up the Dow Jones.
Let's have a war. We can start in New Jersey.
Let's have a war. Blame it on the middle class.
Let's have a war. We're like rats in a cage.

It al-ready started in the city.
Suburbia will be just as easy!

There's so many of us. There's so many of us. There's so many. (5x)

Let's have a war. Sell the rights to the networks.
Let's have a war. Till the mothers get fat like last time.
Let's have a war. Give guns to the queers.
Let's have a war. The enemy's within.

It al-ready started in the city.
Suburbia will be just as easy!

There's so many of us. There's so many of us. There's so many! (8x)

Variants/ Misheard:

"Let's have a war. We can all use the break."
"
Let's have a war. We can all use the play."
"
Let's have a war. We can all use the blame."
"
Let's have a war. We can all use our Brains."
"Let's have a war. We could all use the money!

Version A:
"It-all-ready-started....in the city!"
"It's so glorious.
And be just as easy."

Verson B: (I don't know if this is it, but I like this one better)
"It already started in the city!
Suburbia will be just as easy! "

Misheard:

Kill maim destroy...a burrito!
we-don't-really-wanna.... aburrido! glumpy fumpy fump!

"There's so many opposites,..."
"There's so many of us..."

---------------------------------
"Redeem this space."
"We need the space!"
---------------------------------
"We can save New Jersey!"
"It can start in New Jersey!"
---------------------------------
"Let our wallets get fat like last time!"
"Nevermind about that last time."
(actual)"Till the mothers get fat like last time."

One person actually thought the line "Give guns to the queers."
was "Give life a little twist."
