song Description:

A protest folk song about the Pentagon's 1983 invasion of that island during the Reagan era. (lyrics) Oh, say can you see? The ships on the sea And an island so small is surrounded And paratroopers land With guns in their hands: The Marines have captured Grenada. Jets attack from the sky A sovereign country Destroying hospitals with bombs The radio station Will not speak again: The Marines have captured Grenada. Like Nazis they came Six thousand Marines and Rangers To start an occupation To crush democracy With heavy artillery: The Marines have captured Grenada. To cover their war crimes They broadcast many lies And people who resist they do slaughter International law They choose to ignore: The Marines have captured Grenada. The bully of the world He has struck again Like Hitler, he fears all revolt To keep their empire They’ll do it again: The Marines have captured Grenada. But Grenada fights on With selfless Cubans And resists deep inside the mountains And Nicaragua Will not surrender: The Marines have captured Grenada. The Fascists again Imperialist Uncle Sam Have used War to smash Revolution But people now see What free enterprise means: The Marines have captured Grenada
