Since you're talking Irish here: How about U2 "War" or "One"

I thnk of Tom Paxton, and probably the shortest protest song ever:
"I sing of Spiro Agnew, and all the things he's done" (followed by silence...)

This is far too sad! One would think we'd learn, you know? <sigh>

Not quite like the ones we've seen so far, but Rogers and Hammerstein, from South Pacific - "You've Got to be Carefully Taught" (consider that it was performed in 1949...)

Mitchell Trio sang it, too; I think it was on their "Slightly Irreverent" Album. Joe Frazier sang Brecht's words, I believe.

Also sang (on that same album), "With God on Our Side" (another Dylan song)
