(to the tune of "Democracy")

It's comin’ through the tears and angry shouts
From Palestinians on the ground without a house
It's comin’ from the just who realize they must
If peace shall ever come for anyone
From the victims losing homes
and white phosphorus still burning
From those children's broken bones
Hopes of refugees returning
The Boycott Call is comin'... to the USA
