We Love You Ukraine

US military aid to Ukraine surpasses $3 billion under Biden.
— USA Today (April 14, 2022)

Because we love you Ukraine
We will send you guns and jets
And drones and bombs and missiles
And mines and mortars
And you will defend your country

When the enemy shells your cities
And you fight back valiantly
And use up all our weapons
We will send you more
Because we love you

We will send prosthetic arms and legs
And wheelchairs for your wounded
We will send shovels and caskets
For your dead
And when you have buried your dead

And cared for your wounded
Then because of our great love for you
We will send more weapons
And when the enemy marches into town
We know brave Ukraine will not surrender

Will never surrender
But fight on and on and on
Which will make us love you all the more
And when you bury more dead
And care for more wounded

We will send you more weapons
Because we love you Ukraine
Because we love you to pieces
Because we love you to distraction
Because we love you to death
