Lyrics “British Bombs” – Declan McKenna

Great snakes, are we moving already
Good gravy, did you say it cost a penny or two for you
We’re talking ’bout the bad starts
My baby brother has already got a gas mask

‘Cause it’s a good old-fashioned landslide
Killing with your hands tied
In the homemade rope, set sail
Babe, we read it in the Mail, no hope now

Great way to fool me again, hun
Great acting, it’s great what you tell ’em
Great Britain won’t stand for felons
Great British bombs in the Yemen

Why does it seem a fever dream for all
The call you made to me you said I’ll fear
One day each year I worry
We shall remember the dead
And we’ll remember the dead
So they know that we’re sorry
But then carry on

Great way to fool me again, hun
Great acting, it’s great what you tell ’em
Great Britain won’t stand for felons
Great British bombs in the Yemen..②

How could it be the money
It’s the vote that matters to me
You say you’re hungry
But you won’t eat the caraway seed
Doesn’t matter in the wreckage, what should you say
Well, I found myself a little peckish last Tuesday
This is what you signed up for, no questions
Reckon we could offer peace
Damn the weapons conventions
Well, it’s on the table
But it’s no good, can’t you hear
All our worries for fear, carry on

Great way to fool me again, hun
Great acting, it’s great what you tell ’em
Great Britain won’t stand for felons
Great British bombs in the Yemen..②

It’s a good old-fashioned landslide
Killing with your hands tied
In the homemade rope, set sail
Babe, we read it in the Mail, no hope now
And it’s a total f**king whitewash
The people that we might squash
And move from home soil, set sail
For wherever the f**k got oil this time
And if it’s not a f**king war crime
It’s a total waste of your time
And getting so much worse get real
Kid, your country’s been at war since birth now
And if it’s not a f**king outrage
What’s it all about then
Now, it’s one on one, wait
Britain’s gonna tell you where it all went wrong
And then carry on

Great way to fool me again, hun
Great acting, it’s great what you tell ’em
Great Britain won’t stand for felons
Great British bombs in the Yemen..②…
