Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp Songbook

84 Greenham Common (Oklahoma)

Greenham Common where the wind comes blowin' thrugh the wire,
And the driving sleet has got your beat,
And you can't get closer to the fire
Greenham Common, whore you-re sleeping fiften to a tent
And the mud's so deep you've got wet feet.
And the locals think you're all bent.

As women we all have to choose
What to do with missiles like Cruise.
That's why we go to Greenham
Where the bailiff's comming up the hill
They throw your pots and pans in the muncher van
It seems to give them such a trill.

Greenham Common where you see us sitting by the fence
Don't just turn away, you might hear us say
Suicide is no defence.

As women we all have to choose
What to do with missiles like Cruise.
That's why we go to Greenham
Just to show at Greenham
Greenham Common's OK, no way
USA go away from Greenham Common.
