`Hands Off Iran' lyrics
(chorus) The martyrs killed by Savak Killed by U.S. machines The martyrs shot down in the streets Gave their lives so Iran could be free. The martyrs killed in war Plotted by the C.I.A. The blood of all the martyrs Is on the hands of the U.S.A.
(verses) The criminal U.S. banks still try to rule Iran Their murderous C.I.A. draw up invasion plans And that is why the people from Berkeley to Boston Must tell the U.S. government: "Hands off Iran!" (chorus) Exxon and Texaco want the Persian Gulf oil And they don't care how many young people they must kill And that is why the workers from Berkeley to Boston Must tell the U.S. government: "Hands off Iran!"(chorus)
ABC it lies each day and every night It tries to poison minds so Big Business can dominate And that is why the students from Berkeley to Boston Must tell the U.S. government: "Hands off Iran!" (chorus)
