(Don’t Want Your) Nuclear Umbrella

You love the Bomb
You say it’s protection
Feels more like a bull’s-eye
Attracting your enemies
We don’t want no part
In weapons that mass destruct
There is no excuse
Time to disarm your nukes
 
[Chorus]
 
Let’s ban nuclear bombs together
Cold war just can’t last forever
You said that peace is your friend
So bring this stand-off to an end
Now we’re determined more than ever
Let’s ban nuclear bombs forever
Don’t want your nuclear umbrella
Don’t want your nuclear umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Umbrella of terror
(Error error eh eh eh)
Nuclear umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Umbrella of terror
(Error error eh eh eh)
 
Nuclear weasel states
Your time has come to take
A stand for history
And for humanity
These fancy bombs
Will never right the wrongs
Or make us safe from harm
Stand up and disarm
 
[Chorus repeated]
 
Won’t be long until we find security nirvana
Time to start negotiating a treaty
Or will you let the bombs fall?
Which side of history are you on?
 
[Chorus repeated]
