TOJO

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


            I.  Tojo never heard the first bomb.
                went off in his backyard.
                melted his pocket comb,
                killed his myna bird.
                but Tojo never heard the first bomb.
                Tojo never heard.
                Tojo never heard the first bomb.
                Tojo never heard.

           II.  Tojo never had any warning,
                no warning at all.
                Truman should have warned him,
                pacifist voices call.
                but Tojo never had any warning,
                no warning at all.
                Tojo never had any warning,
                no warning at all.

          III.  Tojo finally heard the second blast.
                he gave up at last.
                sorry, Nagasaki.
                sorry for the pain.
                sorry, Nagasaki,
                but Truman's not to blame.
                Hiroshima was the warning
                that Tojo never heard.
