The English Beat – Stand Down Margaret lyrics

I said I see no joy
I see only sorry
I see no chance of your bright new tomorrow

So stand down Margaret
Stand down please
Stand down down down down down
Down down down down down

I say stand down Margaret
Stand down please
Stand down down down down down
Down down down down down

Stand down Margaret
Stand down please
Stand down Margaret

I say stand down Margaret
Stand down please
Stand down down down down down
Down down down down down
Down down down down down
Down down down down down
Down down down down down

[instrumental]

You tell me how can it work in this all white law
What a short sharp lesson,
What a third world war

I sometimes wonder if i'll ever get the chance
Just to sit with my children in a holiday jam
Our lives seem petty in your gold grey hands
Would you give a second thought
Would you ever give a damn, I doubt it
Stand down Margaret⌦㔲㬴Awhoa
Everybody shout it
Stand down Margaret!

[instrumental]

Work, white law
Shell shock
World war
War, war, war, war, war
War, war, war, war, war
War, war, war, war, war
War, war, war, war, war
War, war, war, war, war

Stand down please

Stand down Margaret
Stand down please
Stand down Margaret

I say stand down Margaret
Stand down please
Stand down Margaret

Stand down Margaret
Stand down please
Stand down Margaret

I say stand down Margaret
Stand down please
Stand down Margaret
