The Folk Song Army lyrics song by Tom Lehrer

Here is the song lyric of Tom Lehrer : and you can also sing and watch music video

One type of song that has come into increasing prominence in recent months
is the folk-song of protest. You have to admire people who sing these
songs. It takes a certain amount of courage to get up in a coffee-house or
a college auditorium and come out in favor of the things that everybody
else in the audience is against like peace and justice and brotherhood and
so on. The nicest thing about a protest song is that it makes you feel so
good. I have a song here which I realise should be accompanied on a folk
instrument in which category the piano does not alas qualify so imagine if
you will that I am playing an 88 string guitar.

We are the Folk Song Army.
Everyone of us cares.
We all hate poverty, war, and injustice,
Unlike the rest of you squares.

There are innocuous folk songs.
Yeah, but we regard 'em with scorn.
The folks who sing 'em have no social conscience.
Why they don't even care if Jimmy Crack Corn.

If you feel dissatisfaction,
Strum your frustrations away.
Some people may prefer action,
But give me a folk song any old day.

The tune don't have to be clever,
And it don't matter if you put a coupla extra syllables into a line.
It sounds more ethnic if it ain't good English,
And it don't even gotta rhyme--excuse me--rhyne.

Remember the war against Franco?
That's the kind where each of us belongs.
Though he may have won all the battles,
We had all the good songs.

So join in the Folk Song Army,
Guitars are the weapons we bring
To the fight against poverty, war, and injustice.
Ready! Aim! Sing!
