    Tommy in the 21st Century

    We aren’t made for cool Britannia; we leave boot marks on the floor.
    We don’t walk like Peter Mandelson or talk quite like Jack Straw
    Call us “forces of conservatism” if it suits your turn
    But we’re off like some world fire brigade when flash points start to burn.

    Yes it’s Tommy this, and Tommy that, and spend less on defence
    But who walks the streets of Basra when the air is getting tense?
    When the air is getting tense , boys, from Kabul to Kosovo
    Who’ll say goodbye to wife and kids, and shoulder pack and go?

    The Queen, she’s sat in Windsor now for 50 years or more.
    She’ll see this government depart like other ones before.
    And Blair and Bush and Chirac make their plans to no avail
    But who remains to serve the Crown when politicians fail?

    O it’s Tommy change your values- now diversity’s the game;
    But when Christmas leave is cancelled, then whose tyrants are to blame?
    There’s tyrants in the mountains, boys, and tyrants in the sands,
    So farewell to wives and risk your lives for them in foreign lands.
