Ooooooh
5 5 5 5 -4 4 4
Why don’t we all just get stoned,
4 -5 -5 -5 -6 6 -5 5
Get drunk and sing beer drinking songs.
5 5 -5 -5 -5 -6 6
Between Brezhnev and Begin,
-5 5 -5 5 -4 4
Khomeini and Reagan,
4 5 5 5 -5 5 -4 4-454
We might as well all just get stoooned.

3 3 3 -3 4 -4 4 5 -4 4 -4
You can’t even look at the T V these days,
3 3 3 3 -3 4 -4 -4
Without gettin’ scared half to death.
-5 -5 -5 -5 -5 -4 -4 -4 -3 -3 3
The eyewitness news leaves me used and abused,
3 3 3 4 -4 -5 5 -4 5
And I find myself gasping for breath.
6 6 6 6 6 5
There’s strikes and inflation,
5 6 6 6 6 5
And strife between nations,
5 6 6 -6 7 -7 -6 6
The world’s in a hell of a mess.
7 7 7 7 7 -7
No matter who’s hurtin’,
-6 6 -6 6 5 -4
There’s one thing for certain,
5 -5 -5 -5 -5 5 -4 4
The whole world will blame the U.S.

Ooooooh
5 5 5 5 -4 4 4 6 5
Why don’t we all just get stoned, (get drunk)
4 -5 -5 -5 -6 6 -5 5
Get drunk and sing beer drinking songs.
5 5 -5 -5 -5 -6 6
Between Brezhnev and Begin,
-5 5 -5 5 -4 4
Khomeini and Reagan,
4 5 5 5 -5 5 -4 4-454
We might as well all just get stoooned.

3 3 3 3 4 -4
The Russians don’t like us,
4 5 -4 4 -4
And we don’t like them.
3 3 3 3 -3 4 -4 -4
The Israelis hate the Arabs.
-5 5 -5 -5 -5 -4 -4 -4 -3 -3 3
I-ran and I-raq are on each other’s back,
3 3 3 4 -4 -5 5 -4 5
And El Salvador’s still up for grabs.
6 6 6 6 6 5 5 6 6 6 6 5
I wish they’d take Idi Amin and Khomeini
6 6 6 6 -6 7 -7 -6 6
And Khadafi and all of the rest,
7 7 7 7 7 7
Tie’em all to a chair,
6 6 6 6 -6 6 -6 6 -5 5
And make’em stare at Yasser Arafat,
5 -5 -5 -5 -5 -5 5 -4 4
‘Til he uglies the whole bunch to death.

Ooooooh
5 5 5 5 -4 4 4 6 5
Why don’t we all just get stoned, (get drunk)
4 -5 -5 -5 -6 6 -5 5
Get drunk and sing beer drinking songs.
5 5 -5 -5 -5 -6 6
Between Brezhnev and Begin,
-5 5 -5 5 -4 4
Khomeini and Reagan,
4 5 5 5 -5 5 -4 4-454
We might as well all just get stoooned.

(What about cleaning up our own backyard)
3 3 3 3 4 -4
There’s mass unemployment,
4 5 -4 4 -4
And crime in the streets,
3 3 3 3 -3 4 -4 -4
Inflation gets worse everyday,
-5 -5 -5 -5 -5 -4 -4
They’re taxin’ us maximum,
-4 -3 -3 -3 -3 3 3
And Congress ain’t ax-in’em.
4 4 -4 5 -5 5 -4 5
They take most my paycheck away.
6 6 6 6 6 -5 5
Now Social Security
5 -5 6 6 6 6 -5 5
Has become an obscurity,
6 6 6 6 -6 7 -7 -6 6
Where the hell’s all the money we paid?
7 7 7 7 7 7 7 -7
Lord, if the Commie’s don’t take us,
6 6 6 -6 6 -5 5
Reaganomics will break us,
5 -5 -4 -5 -5 5 4 4
We ain’t got a chance either way.

6
Ooooooh
5 5 5 5 -4 4 4 6 5
Why don’t we all just get stoned, (get drunk)
4 -5 -5 -5 -6 6 -5 5
Get drunk and sing beer drinking songs.
5 5 -5 -5 -5 -6 6
Between Brezhnev and Begin,
-5 5 -5 5 -4 4
Khomeini and Reagan,
4 5 5 5 -5 5 -4 4-454
We might as well all just get stoooned.
