Song Lyrics:
There ain't no PLO down in Arab, Alabama
And up in Paris, Tennessee, they don't eat escargot
And Irish people don't shoot each other in good old Dublin, Georgia
And there ain't no one named Gorbachev in Moscow, Idaho

And the streets of Berlin, Maryland ain't got no iron curtain
And folks from Cuba, Missouri ain't out hijackin' planes
And people that live in London, Kentucky don't talk like Richard Burton
And there's only one kind of coke that comes from Peru, Maine

I wouldn't put up with an Ayatollah if there was a Tehran, Texas
And mamas wouldn't name kids Mohammar in Tripoli, Arkansas
And San Salvador, Mississippi might be a right peaceful town
And if there was a Beirut, Louisiana, baby, I'd feel safe and sound

Let's take Castro to Kentucky and put a coal shovel in his hand
And marry him off to one of Loretta's sisters
We'd never see him again
And put Arafat in a fur lined hat and take all the sheetheads he knows
And jumbo jet 'em to Nome, Alaska and make 'em be Eskimos

Well, there ain't no PLO down in Arab, Alabama
And up in Paris, Tennessee, they don't eat escargot
And Irish people don't shoot each other in good old Dublin, Georgia
And ain't no one named Gorbachev in Moscow, Idaho

I said a big truck takes the garbage off in Moscow, Idaho

There is a great music video on youtube of this song that the boys made at a music festival. I think it's still timely given our present circumstances.
