This song by Samuel and Kari Stokes is inspired by Barrack Obama, with his quip to Mitt Romney in the third presidential debate on 10/22/2012 that in addition to fewer sea ships in our military now as compared to 1917, we also have fewer horses and bayonets. It has been played on A-Log on the Airwaves and Ben's Wacky Radio.

Lyrics:
Horses and Bayonets, Horses and Bayonets
What this country needs now is Horses and Bayonets

Back in 1917, the greatest year our country's seen.
The army was a fearsome threat with horses and bayonets.

Heavens knows the cavalry, just ain't what it used to be,
Used to make the bad guys sweat, with horses and bayonets.

Nothing else is such a bore, as the scene of modern war.
Battle used to be such fun, and this is how we got it done...
With...

The atom bomb is not my friend, it could mean our untimely end.
But as sure as might is right, I'll always kiss my horse at night.
