Sixteen military wives - tabbed by dan quinn

E		   D
Sixteen military wives
           A                                E	
Thirty-two softly focused brightly colored eyes
                       D
Staring at the natural tan
              A                                E
of thirty-two gently clenching wrinkled little hands

A                 B
Seventeen company men
             C#               D            A
Out of which only twelve will make it back again
E                          D
Seargeant sent a letter to five
         A                                        E
Military wives, his tears drip down to ten little eyes

B
Cheer them on to their rivals
      A       E        A       E         B
Cause America can, and America can't say no
    A       E        A       E         B
And America does, if America says it's so
B 
It's so
        A
And the anchorperson on TV goes...
E
La de da de da
  

Fifteen celebrity mimes 

Leaving their fifteen sorted wretched checkered lives
  
Will they find the solution in time
  
Using their fifteen pristine moderate liberal minds?

  
Eighteen academy chairs
  
Out of which only seven really even care
  
Doling out a garment to five
  
Celebrity mimes, they're humbly taken by surprise
  

  
Cheer them on to their rivals
  
Cause America can, and America can't say no
  
And America does, if America says it's so
  
It's so
  

  
And the anchorperson on TV goes...
  
La de da de da de-dadedade-da
  
La de da de da de-dadedade-da
  

  
Fourteen cannibal kings
  
Wondering blindly what the dinner bell will bring
  
Fifteen celebrity mimes
  
Served on a leafy bed th sixteen military wives
  

  
Cheer them on to their rivals

  
Cause America can, and America can't say no
  
And America does, if America says it's so
  
It's so
  

  
And the anchorperson on TV goes...
  
La de da de da de-dadedade-da
  
La de da de da de-dadedade-da
