Bombs Away (lyrics)

As long as we're having a blast from the past, here's a song by The Police (in this case, written by Stewart Copeland I believe):

Bombs Away

The general scratches his belly and thinks
His pay is good but his officers stink
Guerilla girl, hard and sweet
A military man would love to meet
The President looks in the mirror and speaks
His shirts are clean but his country reeks
Unpaid bills, in Afghanistan hills

Bombs away
But we're O.K.
Bombs away
In old Bombay

The general only wants to teach France to dance
His army life doesn't give him any romance
Guerilla girl, hard and sweet
A military man would love to meet
The general scratches his belly and thinks
His pay is good but his company stinks
Guerilla girl, hard and sweet
A military man would love to meet

Bombs away
But we're O.K.
Bombs away
In old Bombay
Bombs away
But we're O.K.
Bombs away
In old Bombay
Bombs away
But we're O.K.
Bombs away
In old Bombay
Bombs away
But we're O.K.
Bombs away
In old Bombay


And in honor of GW, I present De Do Do Do, also by the Police.

De Do Do Do

Don't think me unkind
Words are hard to find.
They're only cheques I've left unsigned
From the banks of chaos in my mind.
And when their eloquences capes me
Their logic ties me up and rapes me.
De do do do
de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do
de da da da
Their innocence will pull me through.
De do do do
de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do
de da da da
The meaning less and all that's true.
Poets, priests and politicians
Have words to thank for their positions
Words that scream for your submission
And no-one's jamming their transmission
'Cos when their eloquence escapes you
Their logic ties you up and rapes you.
De do do do
de da da da
. . .
De do do do
de da da da
. . .


Disclaimer: I often will listen to a song and type it up myself; today I was too tired so I just searched and copy/pasted from an online lyrics site. If it's wrong, blame them, not me.
