Pax Americana Tango 
by Mary Gilbert, 6/2/03

(To be sung to the tune of Hernando's Hideaway)

I know         a dark          and secret plot
To get         us more        than what we've got
It's neat,      it's cool        it's really hot
It's called     the Pax America- na Hey!

It star-         ted back       in ninety one
When Bush   the First       was having fun
And now      he's passed    it to his son
He'll rule      the Pax America- na way.

Da da da da...(etc)      The Project for the New American Century
Da da da da...(etc)      Has laid it out in full detail for us to see
Da da da da...(etc)      With bases all around the globe, the world succumbs.
We'll have it all  The rest can crawl   We'll toss them crumbs.

We won't    have to          negotiate
We have     the strength   to dominate
And no-       one cares       how much they hate
Our guts      It's Pax America- na's day.

Da da da da...(etc)      We had often wondered what our future was to be
Da da da da...(etc)      Ah but now we know that empire is our destiny
Da da da da...(etc)      And if any country says our ways they do not like,
They'll learn their place    We'll play our ace Preemptive strike.

There's just     one ques-    tion I would bring
As we             begin          to have this fling
How long        can we        sustain this thing
That's called    the Pax America- na, Hey!


The love of liberty is the love of others. The love of power is the love of ourselves. -- William Hazlitt
