Hammers and Sickles (Make Very Poor Toys)

This song is by The Charades and appears on the compilation Atomic Platters: Cold War Music From the Golden Age of Homeland Security (2005).

Hammers and sickles on banners of red
Hammers and sickles would see freedom dead
Our children's tomorrow they'd like to destroy
Yes, hammers and sickles make very poor toys!

Be strong, my love, and know that I love you
Don't cry as I leave you tonight
I don't want to go but I'm sure that you know
That our country's in danger and I've got to fight

I love you and want a family
A little girl and boy
And for them, crayons and building blocks
Hammers and sickles make very poor toys

Hammers and sickles on banners of red
Hammers and sickles would see freedom dead
Our children's tomorrow they'd like to destroy
Yes, hammers and sickles make very poor toys!

Green is the grass in summer meadows
Gold are the leaves in fall
I like walkin' through fields of flowers
Knowing that I can own it all

Hammers and sickles on banners of red
Hammers and sickles would see freedom dead
Our children's tomorrow they'd like to destroy
Yes, hammers and sickles make very poor toys!

Hammers and sickles on banners of red
Hammers and sickles would see freedom dead
Our children's tomorrow they'd like to destroy
Yes, hammers and sickles make very poor toys!
