Let's Win!




To the ladies of Vietnam,
Take my arm, and walk me in.
To the children of old Iraq,
Take my hand, and walk me in.
(Oh, that's it?) (Oh, dancing?)
Let's Win!

And I hear myself a-screamin' for the Truth,
Everybody talkin' but I'm still confused.
In the dream I saw the kingdom we would lose.
And everybody singing love-sweet-love.

To the women of Ghulu Choir, take me higher,
Or fly me in.
To the children of Mao Zedong, take my arm,
And walk me in.
(Oh, that's it?) (Oh, dancing?)
Yeah, Let's Win!

Watch Out!
Do you know the way, the things to say,
The way to win the game of Life?
Ah, I should know better.
Do you have the time, the time is now,
To get your money house and wife.
Ah, I ain't no liar.

To the boys of Uganda, come home,
And walk me in.
To the children of no one knows,
Take my arm, and walk me in.
(Oh, that's it?) (Oh, dancing?)
Yeah, Let's Win!




heaven help, if there is one.

Nice Job Neckbead! You beat me to it, My favorite song.

This is what I got from it:

Let's Win (Album Version)

To the ladies of Vietnam,
Take my arm,
and walk me in.

To the children of Old Iran,
Take my hand
and walk me in.

oh that's it, lets win

And I hear myself screaming for the truth,
everybody talking, what? I'm still confused,
In a dream i saw the kingdom we would loose,
everybody singing love, sweet looooove...

To the women of Ghulu Choir,
take me higher,
or fly me in.

To the children of Mao Zedong,
take my arm,
and walk me in.

oh that's it,
yeaaah, lets win

watch out!

Do you know the way, the things to say,
the way to win the game of life?

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha (fades off)

ah, I should know better.

do you have the time, the time is now,
to get your money house and wife.

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha (fades off)

ah, I ain't no liar.

To the boys of Uganda,
come home,
And walk me in.

To the children of no one knows,
Take my arm
and walk me in.

Oh, That's it.
Yeaaah, Lets Win.

He says both Iran and Iraq, it depends on what version you are listening to. In the Album Version I hear Iran
