Story behind the song
Would there be wars if we drafted the elderly? This humorous song is a spoof on a real suggestion some idiot Congressman proposed a while back. Joel (who's a Gulf War vet and actually reveres the Greatest Generation WWII vets) thought about what this might be like and composed this wacky song. No offense intended to anybody; the song is meant to be FUNNY.
Lyrics
Chorus: Why don't we draft the elderly? They ain't no good to anybody We can get rid of social security Why don't we draft the elderly? When the big guns fire, they can't even hear The army won't damage their inner ear They're gettin' close to death, so they know no fear-- They'll bring wheelchairs to carry their gear. Chorus: Why don't we draft the elderly? They ain't no good to anybody We can get rid of social security Why don't we draft the elderly? Get the old guys from World War Two They shot guys then; they can now, too Some still have gear; they don't need new They're the true keepers of the Red, White, and Blue. Chorus: Why don't we draft the elderly? They ain't no good to anybody We can get rid of social security Why don't we draft the elderly? Let's give an old guy a tank one day They only go 45 anyway He can plow down people in his way If he runs off the road, what the hey? Chorus: Why don't we draft the elderly? They ain't no good to anybody We can get rid of social security Why don't we draft the elderly? They won't remember when the government lies They won't lose their mind when their bunkmate dies We already know they're a tough bunch of guys-- The enemy'll think our troops are in disguise! Chorus: Why don't we draft the elderly? They ain't no good to anybody We can get rid of social security Why don't we draft the elderly? Chorus: Why don't we draft the elderly? They ain't no good to anybody We can get rid of social security . . . Why don't we draft the elderly?
