"Yankee, Go Home!" (karaoke)

"Yankee, Go Home" (sheet music)


From South America, you can hear the bitter cry;

You can hear it; you can fear it; and, ask the question, "Why?"

We exploited South America for many hungry years;

They look at us with hostile fears, and that's the reason why.

 

Yankee, go home! Oh, Yankee, go home!

Yankee, go home, and leave us alone!

Yankee, go home! Oh, Yankee, go home!

Yankee, go home, and leave us alone!

 

Throughout the troubled Congo, you can hear the bitter cry;

You can hear it; you can fear it; and ask the question, "Why?"

The problem we have got to face, when dealing with the Negro race:

Our own streets run with Negro blood, and that's the reason why.

 

Yankee, go home! Oh, Yankee, go home!

Yankee, go home, and leave us alone!

Yankee, go home! Oh, Yankee, go home!

Yankee, go home, and leave us alone!

 

From the Near East to the Far East, you can hear the bitter cry;

You can hear it; you can fear it; and ask the question, "Why?"

These people suffered bitterly through many years of slavery;

Their oppressors are our allies, and that's the reason why.

 

Yankee, go home! Oh, Yankee, go home!

Yankee, go home, and leave us alone!

Yankee, go home! Oh, Yankee, go home!

Yankee, go home, and leave us alone!

 

Gulf of Tonkin and Double-U-M-D, we lied;

Our invasions, the freedom fighters will not abide.

In Vietnam and Iraq, birth defects are high;

Use of DDT and DPU are the reasons why.

 

Yankee, go home! Oh, Yankee, go home!

Yankee, go home, and leave us alone!

Yankee, go home! Oh, Yankee, go home!

Yankee, go home, and leave us alone!

 

Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, death falls from the sky;

Drones kill civilians, and that's the reason why.

We're spared from the International Criminal Court;

Nuremburg, Geneva, we ignore, leaving no resort.

 

Yankee, go home! Oh, Yankee, go home!

Yankee, go home, and leave us alone!

Yankee, go home! Oh, Yankee, go home!

Yankee, go home, and leave us alone!

 

Unless we change the pattern

That is growing every day,

The time will come when all the world

Will look at us and say:

 

Yankee, go home! Oh, Yankee, go home!

Yankee, go home, and leave us alone!

Yankee, go home! Oh, Yankee, go home!

Yankee, go home, and leave us alone!
