The Love Of Richard Nixon Lyrics - Manic Street Preachers

Review The Song (6)



The world on your shoulders
The love of your mother
The fear of the future
The best years behind you
The world is getting older
The times they fall behind you
The need it still grows stronger
The best years never found you

The love of Richard Nixon , death without assassination
The love of Richard Nixon, yeah they all betrayed you
The love of Richard Nixon, death without assassination
Yeah they all betrayed you
Yeah and your country too

Love build around the sandy beaches
Love rains down like Vietnam's leeches
Richard the third in the White house
sponsored links
Cowering behind divided curtains

The world is getting older
The times they fall behind you
The need it still grows stronger
The best years never found you

The love of Richard Nixon, death without assassination
The love of Richard Nixon, yeah they all betrayed you
The love of Richard Nixon, death without assassination
Yeah they all betrayed you
Yeah and your country too

The love of Richard Nixon, death without assassination
The love of Richard Nixon, yeah they all betrayed you
People forget China and your war on cancer
Yeah they all betrayed you
Yeah and your country too

In all the decisions I have made in my public life
I have always tried to do what was best for the nation
I have never been a quitter

you idiot | Reviewer: chris | 11/17/08

richard nixon was the us president from 1968-1974 (i think, i will be quoted on that), during the cold war. russian radio will be playing that because they still hate america, like nearly the whole planet does.



It's about Nixon, people | Reviewer: frank | 3/28/08

It's a sympathetic look at the Nixon presidency - why are all these russian people asking about the legitimacy of the song or "what was the point of it?" - they're a politically motivated band and they write political songs...it's like asking what's the point of any of their songs?



The song: | Reviewer: Synphetamine | 9/15/07

It's a fantastic song, The band however dates back to early 90's possibly late 80's, They started off on political issues in the early days but after the death of one of the band members they became more mainstream, If you wish to judge them then it seems like someone who listens to Russian Pop "Which please note is more polished than any other pop with people like Tatu and Serebro tarnishing Russia, This band has some fantastic songs like

- Tsunami
- You stole the sun from my heart
- If you tolerate this, then Your children will be next
- Design for life

All of which would suit anyone who likes the pop/rock/indie scene.

As for this song, I actually don't see the point in it either however it's has the sort of music you could listen to over and over again, They have never been the greatest lyric workers however they have always been great with instruments able to capture emotions through them.



oh really? | Reviewer: BlueBerry Pick'n | 5/23/07

well, that's disturbing.

"The Love of Richard Nixon" with Dianetics advertising.

well, isn't *that* interesting.

What's the Point? | Reviewer: Doug | 9/4/05

I am working in Rostov-on-Don in Russia, and one radio station plays this song every morning (or nearly so). The station is Radio Rostov. I wonder what is the point of this song, and even stranger, why this Russian radio station plays it nearly every morning? I cna't imagine who would even buy something from this band. But the name Manic Street Preachers, is also too much!!! Well, someone here must like the song, or they wouldn't play it nearly every day. When I here the song I change the station to Russian pop.
