Poppy lyrics

(heaton/rotheray)
i fought hard in the second world war
You hear them shout
No good bragging about the afrika korps
It was beadles about

They dressed you up and took you off to world war one
Armed you and surrounded you with wire
Sat in stinking mud you sung your stupid songs
And waited till they told you when to fire

Cause the rulers always laugh
At a video bloodbath
Nothing makes them laugh
Like a video bloodbath

From the first world war to the yom-kippur
It was beadles about
The bayonets slice, the rockets roar
And he jumps out

Fond memories of the bloody bridge you failed to hold
Many of your buddies killed or maimed
You wouldve shot at rabbits if thats what youd been told
Till the general said Im sorry youve been framed

Cause the rulers always laugh
At a video bloodbath
And nothing gets a laugh
Like a video bloodbath

Chorus:
Keep those entries coming
Leave those cameras running
Keep those entrails coming
Leave those soldiers gunning
Because youre sure to get a laugh
With a video bloodbath
Nothing gets a laugh
Like a video bloodbath

Heres a wacky video we got last week
A bomb catches arthur unawares
Hes lost both his arms and he cant see or speak
But thank you for the memory you shared

Cause the rulers always laugh
At a video bloodbath
And nothing gets a laugh
Like a video bloodbath

Chorus
