Chumbawamba After Shelley Lyrics
sponsored linksAnybody can press a button and blow a ship up.
Anybody can use an atom bomb.
Anybody can pick up a big whip and whip you.
Anybody can stick a knife into you.
Anybody can pull a trigger.
But where's the man with the character,
As can take a punch on the nose and keep his temper,
Keep control of himself?
Sho lo, lu la lo, sho lo, lu la (Repeats)
The seed you sow, another reaps
The wealth you find, another keeps
The clothes you weave, another wears
The arms you forge, another bears
The songs you write, another sings
The heart you lose, another wins
The food you bake, another eats
(Poison-laced and oh, so sweet)
Rock and Roll
Check your pulse
Art or death
True or false
Can't stay young
Can't grow old
