[Verse 1] In Europe and America There’s a growing feeling of hysteria Conditioned to respond to all the threats In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets Mr. Khrushchev said we will bury you I don’t subscribe to this point of view It would be such an ignorant thing to do If the Russians love their children too [Verse 2] How can I save my little boy From Oppenheimer's most deadly toy? There is no monopoly of common sense On either side of the political fence [Chorus] We share the same biology Regardless of ideology Believe me when I say to you I hope the Russians love their children too [Instrumental break] [Verse 3] There is no historical precedent To put the words in the mouth of the president There’s no such thing as a winnable war It’s a lie we don’t believe anymore Mr. Reagan says we will protect you I don’t subscribe to this point of view Believe me when I say to you I hope the Russians love their children too [Chorus] We share the same biology Regardless of ideology What might save us me and you Is if the Russians love their children too [Instrumental outro]
