Help save the youth of America
Help save the sun-tanned surfer boys

What do our cousins say
Till Daddy takes the gun away
From the Big Church to the Big River
This is the Land of Opportunity

Are dancing in their seats
Is sleeping in the streets
Don't tell me the old, old story
Is the Man in the Mask or the Indian

Help save the youth of the world
Their mothers and their faithful girls
Listen to the voice of the soldier
Talking about the cost of living

Down by the Rio Grande
And not in some foreign land
And the fate of the great United States
And the incident at Tschernobyl proves

And they may yet burn again
That Washington will burn with them
Los Alamos will burn with them
