A
What you trying to say that you haven't tried to say before?
You're just another red balloon with a lot of hot gas,
Why don't you fuck off?

D                           A
And you think you've got it worked out,
D                        A
And you think you've got it made,
D                             A
And you're trying to play the hero,
            D                      E
Oh, but you never walk home in the dark.

A
I think it's time for truth, and the truth is you've lost, Uncle Jimmy,
Admit you're a failure and decline with honour while you can.

D                           A
And you think you've got it sussed out, (Hah!)
D       E                A
And you think that we're brainwashed, (No way!)
D                           A
And you're trying to form a police state,
           D                   E
So you can rule our bodies and minds.

D                        A
Whatever happened to the great empire?
G                           D      G   D
You bastards have turned it into man - ure!
A                 G              E
Tell the young to stick together now.

A
I bet you sleep at nights in silk sheets, and a clean mind,
While killer roam the streets in numbers, dressed in blue.

D                            A
And you're trying to hide it from us,
D       E         A
But you know what I mean,
D                 A
Bring forward the six pigs,
         D                 E
We wanna see them swing so high,

Liddle Towers!

(there then follows a short guitar solo:)

NB: Liddle Towers: Weller shouts this before the guitar solo, Liddle Towers died in police custody in late 1976, the coroner's verdict of 'misadventure' led the newspapers to demand a full enquiry.
