So Long Mom, I'm Off To Drop The Bomb by Tom Lehrer

So long, mom,
I'm off to drop the bomb,
So don't wait up for me.
But while you swelter
Down there in your shelter,
You can see me
On your tv.
While we're attacking frontally,
Watch brinkally and huntally,
Describing contrapuntally
The cities we have lost.
No need for you to miss a minute
Of the agonizing holocaust. (yeah!)
Little johnny jones he was a u.s. pilot,
And no shrinking vi'let was he.
He was mighty proud when world war three was declared,
He wasn't scared,
No siree!
And this is what he said on
His way to armageddon:
So long, mom,
I'm off to drop the bomb,
So don't wait up for me.
But though I may roam,
I'll come back to my home,
Although it may be
A pile of debris.
Remember, mommy,
I'm off to get a commie,
So send me a salami,
And try to smile somehow.
I'll look for you when the war is over,
An hour and a half from now!

WELL... WE HAVEN'T LEARNED MUCH IN 50 YEARS HAVE WE?

Yes, especially war that ends up wipeing out all of humanity except for types like Mel Gibson and Tina Turrner in Mad Max Thunder Dome.
