Ένα θαυμάσιο αντιπολεμικό τραγούδι του Βρετανικού εναλλακτικού punk-dance γκρουπ, από το άλμπουμ τους 30 Something, που κυκλοφόρησε στα early ’90s. Πρόταση του stcigar.

A brilliant anti-war by the British alternative punk-dance band, from their album 30 Something released in the early ’90s. A proposition from stcigar.

❝ “Bloodsport for all,” said Corporal Flash
And shoved me in a room full of C.S. gas
Stuck me in a wetsuit
To dry off in the sun
And fed me pet food
Kit-e-Kat and Chum
“Stand up and beg,” said Sergeant Kirby
Lay down, play dead for Di and Fergie
Roll up, roll up goes the revielle
Abuse the bugle boy of company B!
“Suffer in silence,” said Brigadier General Holmes
Or change your name to Smith or Jones
Learn to live with all the death threat notes
The big bannanas and the racist jokes
“Stand up and beg,” said Sergeant Kirby
Lay down, play dead for Di and Fergie
Roll up, roll up goes the revielle
Abuse the bugle boy of company B
And the coldest stream guards
of them all
Sang “God Save The Queen and Bloodsport For All!”
While were on the subject
I’ve been called a spade
Single filed in public
With my privates on parade
I hope my feet go flat
Before I hang myself
Cause I can’t take this crap
I’m going A-W-O-L
And the coldest stream guards of them all
Sang God Save The Queen and Bloodsport For All(x7)
While were on the subject
I’ve been called a spade
Single filed in public
With my privates on parade
I hope my feet go flat
Before I hang myself
Cause I can’t take this crap
I’m going A-W-O-L
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah ❞

Enjoy!
