I’ve got my….

Master Charge Visa card, checkbook and mortgage,
Certificates of birth, marriage, and death.
Sure is good to know we’re ready for a nuclear war.
My ear is to the radio; my feet are on the ground.
I’m no fool; no, I’m getting it down.
Sure is good to know we’re ready for a nuclear war.

They say it can’t happen, well, at least not here.
It’s just a precaution, and we need not fear.
I trust those men ’cause I know they’re really high-paid.
I’ve got the bus stops learned on the evacuation plan,
But they’ve got no drivers, and it seems to me
I’d be standing on the corner, soaking up those nuclear rays.

But I’d have my….

Master Charge Visa card, checkbook and mortgage,
Certificates of birth, marriage, and death.
Sure is good to know we’re ready for a nuclear war.
My ear is to the radio; my feet are on the ground.
I’m no fool; no, I’m getting it down.
Sure is good to know we’re ready for a nuclear war.

They say to tell your kids about the siren sound
So if they ever hear it they can head right down
To the basement where they’ll be safe ’til it blows away.
And in a few hours, we can take a deep breath,
Poke our heads out and just see what’s left,
Shake out our clothes, and we can start all over again.

It won’t be hard. We’ll have our….

Master Charge Visa card, checkbook and mortgage,
Certificates of birth, marriage, and death.
Sure is good to know we’re ready for a nuclear war.
My ear is to the radio; my feet are on the ground.
I’m no fool; no, I’m getting it down.
Sure is good to know we’re ready for a nuclear war.

They say it can’t happen, but they’re training all the troops,
Equipping all the hospitals with medicines for nukes,
Checking out the maps to find out the best escape routes.
Now, you can go north, east, or south,
But if they blow it up you know the only way out
Is a rocket ship headed straight for Mars.

Where you’ll need your….

Master Charge Visa card, checkbook and mortgage,
Certificates of birth, marriage, and death.
Sure is good to know we’re ready for a nuclear war.
My ear is to the radio; my feet are on the ground.
I’m no fool; no, I’m getting it down.
Sure is good to know we’re ready for a nuclear war.

Sure is good to know, when the sirens start to blow,
We all know where we’ll go.
Sure is good to know we’re ready for a nuclear war!
