- tune: Do Nothing ‘Til You Hear from Me
Do nothing ‘til you hear from me!
Don’t go! The stoplight is on red!
Become a master of foreign affairs-
Or are they over your head?
Do nothing ‘til you can cool down!
Don’t just go bullying through.
Negotiation is an hon’rable move.
Yes, peace is red, white and blue.
Without a war
Peace and justice could win out.
Without those bombs
Can you even doubt
We’d still have clout?
Do nothing till you hear from me!
Use strength in ways that do not kill.
Wait till we all enlist for permanent war–
And we never will!
