Anti-war song of the 60's still applies today. Listen to this:

A reworking of the Woodstock Classic by Joe Mcdonald 'I Feel Like I'm
Fixin' To Die' With some new words added by Martin Plant.

Well come on all you big strong men.
I hear the man needs your help again.
Got himself in a terrible jam,
Way down in Iraq and Afghanistan.
So put down your books and pick up a gun,
we're gonna' have a whole lotta fun.

Well it's 1,2,3, what are we fighting for,
Don't ask me I don't give a damn.
Next stop gonna' be Iran,
Well it's 5,6,7, open up the Pearly Gates.
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopie we're all gonna die.

Now come on city boy don't be slow,
Why this wars a go-go-go.
There's plenty of money to be made,
Supplying the army with the tools of the trade.
Just hope and pray if they drop the bomb,
They are gonna drop it on the Taliban.


Well it's 1,2,3, what are we fighting for,
Don't ask me I don't give a damn.
Next stop gonna' be Iran,
Well it's 5,6,7, open up the Pearly Gates.
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopie we're all gonna die.


Now come on Generals, lets move fast,
Your big chance is here at last.
Now you can go and spy on us all,
'cause we're all guilty in the 'eye' of your law.
You know that peace can only be won when we blow them all to kingdom
come.


Well it's 1,2,3, what are we fighting for,
Don't ask me I don't give a damn.
Next stop gonna' be Iran,
Well it's 5,6,7, open up the Pearly Gates.
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopie we're all gonna die.


Now come on all you mothers throughout the land.
Send your sons out to the rich oil land.
Come on Fathers don't hesitate,
Send your Daughter before it's too late.
Be the first one on the block,
to have your girl come home in a box.


Well it's 1,2,3, what are we fighting for,
Don't ask me I don't give a damn.
Next stop is Afghanistan,
Well it's 5,6,7, open up the Pearly Gates.
Well it ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopie we're all gonna die.

Well it's 1,2,3, what are we fighting for,
Don't ask me I don't give a damn.
Next stop gonna' be Iran,
Well it's 5,6,7, open up the Pearly Gates.
Well it ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopie we're all gonna die.
