Feb. 27, 2003: The Missle Dick Chicks wow Broadway with a 21 Dick salute and a performance of "Shop in the Name of War." The police allowed them to sing the song twice before they had to leave.

Shop! in the Name of War (To the tune of "Stop in the Name of Love" by the Supremes.

Shop! in the Name of War
You need a whole lot more


Think of it as your civic duty
Our SUVs need that oil booty
Without the taxes on your consumer billions
Uncle Sam can't afford to bomb civilians
So don't fear, grab your credit card and stay calm
That brand-new car will buy a lot of Napalm


Don't think it over / why do you need to think it through?
Don't think it over / George Bush would never lie to you


Shop in the Name of War
You need a whole lot more
Shop in the Name of War
You need a whole lot more
Don't think it over
Don't think it over

Wars 'R' Us is open for business
We'll send Iraq a nice bomb for Christmas
True, our school systems have to beg and barter
But at least our bombs are getting smarter
Let's kick some ass for Texaco and BP
A little carnage never hurt nobody


Don't think it over / why do you need to think it through?
Don't think it over / Dick Cheney wouldn't lie to you


Shop! in the Name of War
You Need a whole lot more
Shop! in the Name of War
You Need a whole lot more
Don't think it over
Don't think it over


The bad economy demands a new scapegoat
That's why Iraq must become our client state so
The world will be safe for Macy's, Sack's & Target
To whip it out and penetrate their market

Shop! in the Name of War
You Need a whole lot more
Shop! in the Name of War
You Need a whole lot more
Don't think it over
Don't think it over
 
The Chicks got ready, strapped on their missle dicks and rehearsed on 42nd Street
