lyrics

Us, and them
And after all we're only ordinary men.
Me, and you.
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do.

Forward he cried,, from the rear
and the front rank died.
And the general sat, and the lines on the map
moved from side to side.

Black and blue
And who knows which is which and who is who.

Up and down.
(but) And in the end it's only round and round.

Haven't you heard it's a battle of words
The poster bearer cried.
Listen son, said the man, with the gu-u-u-n —
There's room for you inside.

"I mean, they're not gunna kill ya, so if you give 'em a quick short,
sharp, shock, they won't do it again. Dig it? I mean he get off
lightly, 'cos I would've given him a thrashing - I only hit him once!
It was only a difference of opinion, but really...I mean good manners
don't cost nothing do they, eh?"

Down and out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about.
With, without.
And who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about?

Out of the way, it's a busy day
I've got things on my mind.
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died.
