CRASH BOOM BANG (1980)
Chorus : And it’s Crash Boom Bang !
Look out ! Here comes the Klu-Klux-Klan
Look out ! Here comes the Purple Gang
The abominable snowman.
And it’s Crash Boom Bang
Get ready for the big shebang
Are you ready for the promise land
This the dawn of a new man. Ha !
Wish I didn’t have to be a kid today
All you hear is violence flaring every way
It’s pretty hard to keep your sanity
Propaganda tells you how you’d like to be.
Have you heard of promises of paradise ?
Wait until you see it, what a big surprise
This revolution ain’t the kind you want
You can join the monkey liberation front.
Have you ever tried to shoot a Tommy Gun ?
Try to pull the trigger while you’re on the run
It’s so exciting hiding in the shade
So you join a section of the Red Brigades.
Then you killed a cop and you don’t understand
Why you’re not the biggest hero in the land
There’s a reward that hangs upon your head
Everybody’s hoping they can shoot you dead.
And it’s going on left and right
Are we really gonna have to fight
Yes I know you’re shooting in the air
But it’s heating up the atmosphere. Chorus ……
