Sixteen Military Wives Lyrics - The Decemberists

Review The Song (6)



Sixteen military wives
Thirty-two softly focused brightly colored eyes
Staring at the natural tan
of thirty-two gently clenching wrinkled little hands
Seventeen company men
Out of which only twelve will make it back again
Sergeant sends a letter to five
Military wives, whose tears drip down through ten little eyes

Cheer them on to their rivals
Cause America can, and America can't say no
And America dies, if America says it's so
It's so!

And the anchorperson on TV goes...
La de da de da

Fifteen celebrity minds
Leading their fifteen sordid wretched checkered lives
sponsored links
Will they find the solution in time
Using their fifteen pristine moderate liberal minds?

Eighteen academy chairs
Out of which only seven really even care
Doling out the garland to five
Celebrity minds, they're humbly taken by surprise

Cheer them on to their rivals
Cause America can, and America can't say no
And America dies, if America says it's so
It's so!

And the anchorperson on TV goes...
La de da de da de-dadedade-da
La de da de da de-dadedade-da

Fourteen cannibal kings
Wondering blithely what the dinner bell will bring
Fifteen celebrity minds
Served on a leafy bed OF sixteen military wives

Cheer them on to their rivals
Cause America can, and America can't say no
And America dies, if America says it's so
It's so!

And the anchorperson on TV goes...
La de da de da de-dadedade-da
La de da de da de-dadedade-da
La de da de da de-dadedade-da-dedadeda-de de dadede-daaaaa

mesage in this great pop song too important to ever get released as a pop song. Those in charge of the dummying down process won't allow it. There are minds at work here, and Cheney just won't have it!!



We will see. | Reviewer: Iconoclast | 6/4/09

I love the rail against empire. We will see if they are consistant with songs against the current administration who is badly abusing the rule of law and therefore the rights of the common citizen. Will they blast one corporate puppet (Bush) and embrace another (Obama)?



JUST AWESOME! | Reviewer: zaharoula-Greece! | 11/24/07

it's so amazing how the band wants to pass a meaning..and yes the video clip is able to show everything without even listening to the song.America-Bush BEWARE THE COUNTRIES YOU ALWAYS SCREW!



la de da. | Reviewer: viscious gang of keep left signs. | 1/12/06

I really am in love with this song. It's so upbeat, but not. I like songs about that. The vocals and instrumentals are of course well done, but that's not why I love it so much. I don't really know why, I just do.
