It's All Right With Me

It's the wrong time; I was wrong, for
Though this war is charming, it's the wrong war
In the wrong place, but such a charming place
That it's all right with me.

You're George Wrong Bush, call me Wrong Blair;
We said he was arming; we were wrong there;
It's the wrong scare, but do we really care?
No, it's all right with me.

You can't know how happy I am that we met;
I'm strangely attracted to you.
You may not have mastered the whole alphabet;
Whatever you say, I just do.

We have smart bombs, such a strike force,
Precision guided to the wrong wars
In the wrong cause, but such a noble cause
That it's all right with me.

You can't know how happy I am that we met
I'm strangely attracted to you.
You may not have mastered the whole alphabet;
Whatever you say, I just do.

It's the wrong war on the wrong soil
Though the oil is tempting, it's the wrong oil
It's not our oil, but it's such tempting oil
And it's all quite, quite free
And that's all right;
Yes, it's all right;
Yes, it's all right with me.

Les Barker, 2004
