Letra de Something About England

C                         F 

They say immigrants steal the hubcaps

Dmsus2 Am

Of the respected gentlemen

F

They say it would be wine an' roses

D C

If England were for Englishmen again



C

Well I saw a dirty overcoat

Am

At the foot of the pillar of the road

G7

Propped inside was an old man

Am

Whom time would not erode

C

When the night was snapped by sirens

Am

Those blue lights circled fast

G7

The dancehall called for an' ambulance

Am

The bars all closed up fast



My silence gazing at the ceiling

While roaming the single room

I thought the old man could help me

If he could explain the gloom

You really think it's all new

You really think about it too

The old man scoffed as he spoke to me

I'll tell you athing or two



C F

I missed the fourteen-eighteen war

Am Em Am

But not the sorrow afterwards

Dm F

With my father dead and my mother ran off

C G

My brothers took the pay of hoods



The twenties turned the north was dead

The hunger strike came marching south

At the garden party not a word was said

The ladies lifted cake to their mouths



C

The next war began and my ship sailed

Am

With battle orders writ in bed

G7

In five long years of bullets and shells

Am

We left tem million dead

C

The few returned to old Piccadily

Am

We limped around Leicster Square

G7

The world was busy rebuilding itself

Am

The architects could not care



But how could we know when I was young

All the canges that were to come?

All the photos in the wallets on the battlefield

And now the terror of the scientific sun

There was masters an' servants an' servants an' dogs

They taught you how to touch your cap

But through strikes an' famine an' war an' peace

England never closed this gap



C F

So leave me now the moon is up

Am Em Am

But remember all the tales I tell

Dm F

The memories that you have dredged up

C

Are on letters forwarded from hell



The streets were by now deserted

The gangs had trudged off home

The lights clicked off in the bedsits

An' old England was all alone
