This song is from the satirical-topical revue, "Needle Is A Haystack" by Lewis Allan, performed last spring under the direction of Ann Allan in a series of benefits for such organisations as SNCO, Women Strike for Peace, Committee for Selma, Alabama, etc.
If you take the gun they give you
then you know you've got to kill
If you take the gun they give you
there'll be blood you have to spill

If you take the gun they give you
even against your will
you may end up dead or you may be alive
but you'll be a murderer still

If you make the bomb they tell you to
then you know you've got to kill
If you make the bomb they tell you to
there'll be blood you have to spill

If you make the bomb they tell you to
even against your will
you may end up dead or you may be alive
but you'll be a murderer still

If you drop the bomb they tell you to
then you know you've got to kill
If you make the bomb they tell you to
there'll be blood you have to spill

If you drop the bomb they tell you to
even against your will
you may end up dead or you may be alive
but you'll be a murderer still
