Some Talk of Ronald Reagan (David Diamond) Tune: British Grenadiers Some talk of Ronald Reagan The Russian bugger too, But we've got Maggie Thatcher And we know what to do. They've bombs to finish us all off A dozen times or more, But if they do, we'll drop ours too And even up the score. So many politicians, All flavoured Red and Blue Who take delight, by day and night To tell us what to do. They're spouting their dogmatic creeds While we stand by and curse: As soon as we get this lot out The next lot turn out worse. Khaddafi and Khoumeni, And Idi Amin too, Not to mention Adolf Hitler Yes, we've had quite a few. They came to fame midst great acclaim You could hear the people shout. It's easy as sin to put them in, It's hell to get them out. They've raised the price of housing, They've raised the price of booze, They've put the value added tax On everything we use. A man climbed in my bedroom From the Inland Revenue He said "We've put a tax on sex, It's fifteen pence a screw". We do not need their theories On how to run the show. We do not need quotations From the book of Chairman Mao. Mein Kampf and Das Kapital Don't leave us overjoyed. For what it's worth, we want peace on Earth And a chance to be employed. DD
