[VID 3min:36] "So you think that the Russians want war ?" Sung by Billy Bragg






Billy Braggs song "Think Again" from his record "Reaching To The Converted (Minding The Gaps)" 1999.


So you think that the Russians want war 
These are the children of parents who died in the last one 
Do you think that's possible knowing their past 

That they'd ever considered repeating the past
When twenty million were slaughtered by NAZI invasion

They died fighting on our side you know
In a fight to defend human kind from NAZI terror and hatred
In the name of humanity bitter and torn
In the name of our children as yet to be born
Before we do that which can never be undone I beg of you
Think, Think again
and again and again and again and again

Do you think that the Russians want war
These are the children of parents who died in the last one
Do you think that they want to go through that again
The destruction the bloodshed the suffering and pain
In the second wolrd war out of every three dead one was Russian
If we try with all of our power
can we not find a way to peacefully settle our difference

In the name of humanity bitter and torn
In the name of our children as yet to be born
Before we do that which can never be undone I beg of you
Think, Think again
and again and again and again and again

Do you think that the Russians want war
Will the voice of insanity lead you to total destruction
Will you stumble to death as though you were blind
Will you cause the destruction of all human kind
Will you die because you don't like their political system

There will be no survivors you know
No one left to scream in the night and condemn our stupidity

In the name of humanity bitterly torn
In the name of our children as yet to be born
Before we do that which can never be undone I beg of you
Think, Think again
and again and again and again and again
