Mr president

Hey Mr president don't take 
us to war
Don't load up your guns to settle a score 
Your soldiers will gladly give you their lives 
Please don't feed them  bull , rhetoric and lies



Hey Mr president please save us the earth 
Take a look at your children and remember their birth 
Don't tear up nuclear agreements that will save the masses 
 Don't change the law that stop green house gases


Hey Mr president if your not a racist then do what you can
Stop the white supremacist  and the klu Klux Klan
Hey Mr president have your say 
on the rights of the needy the lesbian and gay
 and while your at it please pass a bill to protect returning vets who are mentally  ill


Hey Mr president all these things must be done
So the world can prosper an live as one
Talking and compromise will be the key
To stop us all living in total anarchy

Not long now

Head shaved to
floods of tears 
Been told months
Pray for years 
Don't know what's in store for me
Cross my fingers and wait and see

Had a visit to the surgery for a routine appointment 
Dr sat me down and sold me disappointment
Those tests  you've had couldn't be worse 
Get yourself home son an
book yourself a hearse 

Head shaved to
Floods of tears,
Been told months
Pray for years,
Don't know whats in store for me
Cross my fingers and wait and see


I worry's for my lovely spouse
She'll see the death of her man of the house
She'll move on with the hands of time
It's such a pity those hands arnt mine.

Head shaved to,
floods of tears 
Been told months
Pray for years
Don't know what's 
In store for me 
Cross my fingers and wait and see 


How do you tell your kids the news you've bin given
Can't tell them I'm dieing 
Cos  life is for livin
They'll  have to learn to get on
Cos it wont be long before I'm gone

Head shaved to
Floods of tears
Been told months
Pray for years.
Don't know what's in store for me cross my fingers and wait and see 

Sat down and cryed like  hell, trying to organise my funeral 
I hope the wake wont look like the Mary Celeste 
Mabe they'll contact renter guest

Head shaved to
floods of tears 
Been told months
Pray for years 
Don't know what's in store for me Cross my fingers and wait and see 


It's now approaching the dreaded day 
priest brought in to help me pray
Waste of time

I'm on my way

Crazy world

CRAZY WORLD
 
The world's gone mad
It's  driving me crazy
Is satan winning
Or has God got lazy

Fighter named jahadi Jack 
walks round  town with a bomb strapped to his back
He'd blow up the world if he was able
Made in Britain, wrote on his label 

The world's gone mad
It's driving me crazy
Is satan winning 
Or has God got lazy

Switched on the Tele  for the news at nine
Saw an missile launched at Palestine 
When I watched again at ten
A missile landed on Jerusalem 

The world's gone mad 
Its driving me crazy 
Is satan winning 
Or has God got lazy

Homless people by the plenty 
Thousands of homes standing empty
Drug gangs getting bigger and bigger
Get the kids to pull the trigger 

The world's gone mad 
It's driving me crazy 
Is satan winning 
Or has God got lazy

Mum's can't afford to feed the kids
Supermarket waste under refuse lids
Rampaging kids cause a riot 
Police shoot them down to keep them quiet

The world's gone mad
It's driving me crazy 
Is satan winning
Or has God got lazy

The alcoholic



The alcoholic 

Wake up in the morning have a drink or two
You know how it is?  just to get me through.

Go into work for my daily toil
Good old Dave the life and soul.
First in the queue to take the money to the bank 
Call in the pub, another couple sank.

Eyes on the clock,lunch at one
Two large ones later, shakes have gone

Stay on my own the rest of the day
Chewing on mints,it’s better that way.

There’s another five pints before I get in,
Straight up to bed or open the gin?
Wake up at eleven in a pool of sick
My names Dave and I’m an alcoholic
