Bad News


Blow your horn merry gentleman,
Tell us of the news.
What’s happening in the world.
Tell the silent few.
We are really conscientious.
We care of what goes on.
And listen to the wireless.
So tell us man, come on.

They’re fighting o’er in Ulster.
There’s a war in Vietnam.
We’ve a cold war on with Russia.
China’s making plans.
South Africa’s still apartheid.
Rhodesia’s just as bad.
The Berlin wall’s not crumbling.
Perhaps we’ve all gone mad.

1973, January
