Watching the News Shows

To the tune of “You Were on My Mind

                 I was watching the news shows,
                 It was on my mind.
                 Yes, this was on my mind:
                 Are they helpful? Oh, no.
                 Can you trust them?  Oh, no.
                 Truth there you can't find.

                 They said, "Here come the Russians."
                 They're behind the door,
                 Yeah, right behind the door.
                 Do they scare me?  Oh, no.
                 Do they scare you? Oh, no.
                 We all know the score.

                 I was watching the news shows,
                 It was on my mind.
                 Yes, this was on my mind:
                 Are they helpful? Oh, no.
                 Can you trust them? Oh, no.
                 Truth there you can't find.

                 They wanna keep the pot boilin',
                 Boilin' for more war, yeah,
                 Boilin' for more war.
                 Do you really want that? Oh, no.
                 Should we believe them? Oh, no.
                 'Cause now we know the score.

                 I was watching the news shows,
                 It was on my mind.
                 Yes, this was on my mind:
                 Are they helpful? Oh, no.
                 Can you trust them? Oh, no.
                 Truth there you can't find.
                 Truth there you can't find.
