English Dogs – Mercenary lyrics

Send away from a home made war
Plan to kill the countryґs poor
Use the weapons all paid for
And create a martial law

Itґs a waste of time and money
Lives as well and thatґs not funny
All the lives of the innocent
Slaughtered by some foreign c***

Supply the arms
To kill the men
But the innocent
Canґt take revenge

Signed, sealed, delivered overseas
Brought in like some strange disease
Paid for killing at their will
Brought up to learn to kill

Country says itґs all paid for
Now you too can kill our poor
Smash the rebels if you may
Canґt make do with the army

Religion donґt say who should die
But tell the warplanes in the sky
Itґs greed by a mercenary aid
Donґt car what so long as heґs paid

Now youґve had you home made war
The cost in lives I just deplore
You could have settled this dispute
But all you knew was how to shoot
