'Everybody's Crying Peace on Earth. Just As Soon As We Win This War'

By Mose Allison (1927 ~ 2016)

I can't believe the things I'm seeing

I wonder 'bout some things I've heard

Everybody's Crying Mercy

When they don't know the meaning of the word

A bad enough situation

It's sure enough getting worse

Everybody's Crying Justice

Just as long as it's business first

Toe to toe

Touch and go

Give a cheer

Get your souvenir

People running 'round in circles

Don't know what they're headed for

Everybody's Crying Peace on Earth

Just as soon as we win this war

Straight ahead

Knock 'em dead

Pack your kit

Choose your hypocrite

Well you don't have to go to off-Broadway

To see something plain absurd

Everybody's Crying Mercy
