billy_s_smart_circus

an obvious play on Billy Smart's Circus

To die for his mother country
isn't every fathers wish
But if you're ever feeling hungry
feast your eyes on this
Bullied beat up cabbaged kids
to be patched up by the nurse
who's carrying the baggage in
for the private patients first
and the doctor's praying to Buddha
“Send me to another town!”
A shovelful of sugar
won't help that medicine go down
As the actress said to the bishop
I stand accused your Grace
of the seven deadly cynicisms
and a total lack of faith

And if I put this gun against my head
and pull the trigger I'll be dead
But if I listen to my heart
it say's Billy that ain't smart
so I'll do something else instead

(Billy's smart, Bily's smart
circus for the bleeding hearts
feed the world, heal the sick
take the piss out of the shit
live your life without a net
stick your head down a lion's neck
and listen to the people cheer
send in the clowns
don't bother they're here)

To die for his mother's country
isn't every fathers wish
But if you're ever feeling hungry
feast your eyes on this
under funded O.A.P.s
turn to life of crime
The great cucumber robberies of 1989
Send 'em down and bang 'em up
in a South London maisonette
unlicensed and unregistered
it shouldn't happen to a vet
As the actress said to the bishop
the Rabbi and the Priest
My eyes have seen the glory
I'm a born again atheist

And if I put this gun against my head
and pull the trigger I'll be dead
But if I listen to my heart
it say's Billy that ain't smart
so I'll shoot someone else instead
