Lyrics

A dry rocky barren land in, 
Southern Afghanistan
Thinking how cool it would be,
To host our so-called enemy

I'd load them in a VW van,
And drive them to a root beer stand
We'd laugh while eating chili dogs,
Frosty mugs and then...

We'd drop our weapons in the sand,
And we'd build a root beer stand

I'd gather all the girls and boys,
Escape from the chaotic noise
Thinking how cool it would be,
To host all of humanity

We'd load them in a VW van,
And drive them to a root beer stand
We'd laugh then we'd cry,
Raise our frosty mugs to the sky

Find common ground in simple things,
Tell jokes while eating onion rings
Dreaming how cool it would be,
If everyone sang in harmony

Drive around in VW vans,
Singing all the way to the root beer stand
We'd laugh then we'd try,
Shed the past, reach for the sky
We'd laugh then we'd cry,
Raise our frosty mugs to the sky

A root beer stand....in Afghanistan
