Malvina
Lucy Baines, did you ever see that napalm?
Did you ever see a baby hit with napalm?
When they try to pull it loose why the flesh comes too,
And that's the way they do with that napalm.
That's the way they do with that napalm.

They have lots of fancy names for that napalm,
Like "escalation games," but it's napalm.
And they drop it from the sky,
And the people burn and die,
And the world wonders why we use napalm.

Well, your school is too refined to speak of napalm,
And the White House has no time to talk of napalm,
And the war is far away,
But it goes on night and day,
And it's your hand and mine that drops the napalm.

Lucy Baines, did you ever see that napalm?
Did you ever see a baby hit with napalm?
When they try to pull it loose why the flesh comes too.
And that's the way they do with that napalm.
That's the way they do with that napalm.

Lucy Baines è la figlia minore del presidente Lyndon Baines Johnson, fautore dell'escalation della guerra in Vietnam.

Curioso... oltre ad essere un guerrafondaio ed un assassino di massa il presidente Johnson aveva una vera e propria passione egotica per le proprie iniziali, LBJ, che impose all'intera famiglia: la moglie, Claudia Alta Taylor, era comunemente chiamata Lady Bird Johnson e le figlie furono battezzate Lynda Bird Johnson e Lucy Baines Johnson...
