(We Got To) Invade Grenada

There’s trouble brewing in the tropics.

Another Cuban carbon copy.

Time for America to make a stand.

Time for us to strike up the band.

(We got to) invade Grenada.

(We got to) invade Grenada.

We got to stop the Soviets in their tracks.

Get the Third World off our backs.

Sleepy spice island power play.

Reagan don’t like that runway.

All you med students stay in your rooms.

The communists are on the loose.

Send the choppers in with the news.

It’s Uncle Sam to the rescue.

Hide under the bed…hide under the bed, man.

Hide under the bed.

The dormitory doors swing open.

Is it friends or strangers?

A voice rings out loud and clear.

You’re safe, we’re the Rangers.

(We got to) invade Grenada.
