bloodsport_for_all

Bloodsport for all said Corporal Flash
and shoved me in a room full of C.S. gas
Stuck me in a wet-suit to dry off in the sun
and fed me pet food, Kit-e-kat and Chum
Stand up and beg said Sergeant Kirby
lay down, play dead for Di and Fergie
Roll up, roll up goes the revielle
abuse the bugle boy of company B

Suffer in silence said Brigadier General Holmes
or change your name to Smith or Jones
Learn to live with all the death threat notes
the big bannanas and the racist jokes
Stand up and beg said Sergeant Kirby
lay down, play dead for Di and Fergie
Roll up, roll up goes the revielle
abuse the bugle boy of company B

And the coldest stream guards of them all
sang God Save The Queen and Bloodsport For All

While were on the subject
I've been called a spade
single filed in public
with my privates on parade
I hope my feet go flat
before I hang myself
Because I can't take this crap
I'm going A.W.O.L.

And the coldest stream guards of them all
sang God Save The Queen and Bloodsport For All

I think this song was written after Jim watched a documentary about racism in the Army.
There was also a large sign near Jim when he was growing up that said “Sport for All”
