Not Another Gun

Well, we need more food for our hungry ones
Takes a lot of work to get the job done
We need more food by the tons and tons
What we donít need is any more guns

Well, we need education for our younger ones
Takes a lot of work to get the job done
We need better schools for our daughters and our sons
What we donít need is any more guns


REFRAIN
ĎCause any more guns is many more tears
Weíve got enough guns for a thousand years
Shut the factories, then retool
Not another gun for another damn fool

Well, we need to clean the river of the pollution
Takes a lot of work to get the job done
We need to dredge up the poison where the Hudson runs
What we donít need is any more guns

REFRAIN
ĎCause any more guns is many more tears
Weíve got enough guns for a thousand years
Shut the factories, then retool
Not another gun for another damn fool

BRIDGE 
ĎCause guns donít hammer and guns donít saw
They donít help build anything at all
They canít help a seed grow tall into the sky
They only make people bleed
They only make people die

We must declare our independence from petroleum
Takes a lot of work to get the job done
We need to harness up the power of the water, wind and sun
What we donít need is any more guns

REFRAIN (2x)
ĎCause any more guns is many more tears
Weíve got enough guns for a thousand years
Shut the factories, then retool
Not another gun for another damn fool
