Ένας πανκ ύμνος από το Never Mind The Bollocks. Δεν είμαι σίγουρος ότι οι στίχοι του θα άρεσαν ιδιαίτερα στις σημερινές – “my body my choice” – “φεμινίστριες”…

A punk anthem from Never Mind The Bollocks. I ‘m not sure its lyrics would be much appreciated by today’s – “my body my choice” – “feminists”.


❝ She was a girl from Birmingham
She just had an abortion
She was case of insanity
Her name was Pauline, she lived in a tree
She was a no one who killed her baby
She sent her letters from the country
She was an animal
She was a bloody disgrace
Body! I’m not an animal
Body! I’m not an animal
Dragged on a table in factory
Illegitimate place to be
In a packet in a lavatory
Die little baby screaming
Body screaming fucking bloody mess
Not an animal
It’s an abortion
Body! I’m not animal
Mummy! I’m not an abortion
Throbbing squirm,
gurgling bloody mess
I’m not a discharge
I’m not a loss in protein
I’m not a throbbing squirm
Fuck this and fuck that
Fuck it all and fuck a fucking brat
She don’t wanna baby that looks like that
I don’t wanna baby that looks like that
Body, I’m not an animal
Body, an abortion
Body! I’m not an animal
Body! I’m not an animal
An animal
I’m not an animal…..
I’m not an abortion…..
Mummy! UGH! ❞
