Lyrics
Verse 1

We are young Lts. and we can?t say no
Looking for a few good women who are ready to go
We?ve been in the field?.we need some relief
We da heroes, you da zeroes?..don?t give us grief

Chorus 1

We are taking numbers and we can?t say no
We carry out instructions and we?re ready to go
We?re the young Lts, always on the level
Staying straight, locking horns with the devil

Verse 2

There?s a Fox on the TV?. So go check it out
It will help you understand what we?re talking about
They make like they know, but they haven?t a clue
If you dare to disagree, make you feel like a fool
Trying our best, but each day?s the same
Eatin? hummus and falafel and goin? insane

Chorus 2

We are taking numbers and we can?t say no
We carry out instructions and we?re ready to go
We used up all our fuel and we?re down a quart
It ain?t an easy job and we need ya support

Verse 3

We?re fightin? evil empires?.so stop the fuss
Got it twisted in a dream?Is it them? Is it us?
Open up my eyes, I can see real clear
?..hangin? with my buds, feelin? no fear
Every now and then, we get ground into mud
..don?t hold back, bring us your new blood.
We want the cream, but we take what we get,
And we?re ready to go, on your marks, get set.

Chorus
We?re the young Lts and we can?t say no
We carry out instructions and we?re ready to go
The man back in DC, he must know his stuff
He?ll let us know when enough is enough

Mumbled Outro

Left-Right, Been up all night?..the humvee?s hot and the armor?s too light
I?m trying to get them in my sights, yes indeed, I?m only doing what?s right

But let?s get back to the job at hand?..been workin? out and my body?s tanned
The bomb went off, watched the sgt. die?..kinda lost control, but I didn?t cry

The people in the house, they?re gonna pay?.we gonna help them meet Allah today
It?s not as if I don?t care?..what make?s you think that life is fair?

As-Salamu Alaykum ? We are not mistaken
As-Salamu Alaykum ? They don?t want, we make ?em
As-Salamu Alaykum ? We come in and break ?em
As-Salamu Alaykum ? Ham hocks and bacon
