“War makes them rich men, guns make them rich men, missiles make them rich men, too” [Video, Beatles song] Great!

Wow. Great, just great. Thanks and good work! to whoever did this. It was also a very sweet, and powerful, touch to have the clips of John Lennon woven in at the end. Just great, great stuff! “War makes them rich men, guns make them rich men, missiles make them rich men too.” Just love it. “They invest all their money in tanks and bombs, torpedoes too…” The lyrics are superb. Performed to the tune of “Baby, you’re a rich man” by The Beatles.

Although you need to SEE this video for the visual content, as near as I can make out, the lyrics are like this:

How does it feel to be, into war profiteering?

Now that you know the creeps you are,

How sick do you want to be?

Since you have come so very far,

As far as I can x??xx foresee

How does it feel in the, military-industrial complex?

How often have you sinned there?

Often enough to know

What good is peace when you are there?

Nothing, it doesn’t blow

War makes them rich men, guns make them rich men, missiles make them rich men, too

They invest all their money in tanks and bombs

Torpedoes too

What a thing to do

War makes them rich men, guns make them rich men, missiles make them rich men, too

How does it feel to be, into war profiteering?

Growing unnaturally

And happy to be that way

Now that you’ve signed another deal

What new weapon will you guys make?

War makes them rich men, guns make them rich men, missiles make them rich men, too

They invest all their money in tanks and bombs

Torpedoes too

What a thing to do

War makes them rich men, guns make them rich men, missiles make them rich men, too

War makes them rich men, guns make them rich men, missiles make them rich men, too

War makes them rich men, guns make them rich men, missiles make them rich men, too

War makes them rich men, guns make them rich men, missiles make them rich men, too
