    I've seen you in the markets
    I've seen you in the streets
    And at your political convention
    Talking of your crusade
    Talking of your nation
    And other things too terrible to mention
    And you proclaim your Christianity
    You proclaim your love of God
    You talk of apple pie and mom
    Well I've just got one question
    And I want an answer
    Tell me, who would Jesus bomb?

    Maybe Jesus would bomb the Syrians
    'Cause they're not Jews like him
    Maybe Jesus would bomb the Afghans
    On some kind of vengeful whim
    Maybe Jesus would drive an M1 tank
    And he would shoot Saddam
    Tell me, who would Jesus bomb?

    I've seen you on the TV
    And on the battleships
    I've seen you in the house upon the hill
    And I've heard you talking
    About making the world safer
    And about all the men you have to kill
    And you speak so glibly
    About your civilization
    And how you have the moral higher ground
    While halfway around the world
    Your explosives smash the buildings
    Ah, if you could only hear the sound

    But maybe Jesus would sell land mines
    And turn on his electric chair
    Maybe Jesus would show no compassion
    For his enemies in the lands way over there
    Maybe Jesus would have flown the planes
    That killed the kids in Viet Nam
    Tell me, who would Jesus bomb

    Yes I hear you shout with confidence
    As you praise the lord
    And you talk about this God you know so well
    And you talk of Armageddon
    And your final victory
    When all the evil forces go to hell
    Well you'd best hope you've chosen wisely
    On the right side of the lord
    And when you die your conscience it is clear
    You'd best hope that your atom bombs
    Are better than the sword
    At the time when your reckoning is here

    'Cause I don't think Jesus would send gunships into Bethlehem
    Or jets to raze the towns of Timorese
    I don't think Jesus would lend money to dictators
    Or drive those SUV's
    And I don't think Jesus would ever have dropped
    A single ounce of napalm
    So tell me, who would Jesus bomb?
