MUSICAL CHAIRS, WE MOVE THEM AROUND

MUSICAL CHAIRS THAT DON’T MAKE A SOUND

DANCING A TANGO OF MODERATE MOODS

ALL TAKING TURNS, DON’T WANT TO BE RUDE

MAYBE I WILL BUT THEN MAYBE NOT

HOW LONG THE ODDS AT THE S.P. SHOP?

ECLECTIC CHOICES SOMEONE HAS TO MAKE

WILL IT BE WAR OR STALE CHOCOLATE CAKE?

SHOULD WE DECLARE OR CALL FOR A DRAW

NOW IS THE TIME IN THIS PSYCHOTIC WAR

SHRINKING FROM VALOUR IN CASE IT PRESIDES

BECOMES MANDATORY IN THIS CRAZY RIDE

SINKING QUAGMIRES ENGULFING US ALL

BUT FOR THOSE WINNERS ESCAPING BEFORE

THE LAST SHOTS ARE FIRED IN THIS SHOOTING WAR

VICTORS BEQUEATHED WITH SOLID GOLD SHARES

FFFFFFFFFF

FORNICATE, FANTASIZE rensic, forefathers, fortitude, forthright, fractious, fraternise, frantic, functionate.

Please don’t be late, for the fate predestinate-ed

Bring what you have, go, quickly grab

Some music to play, as you’re spinning around

Please play it quietly, don’t make a sound

Do not disturb great presence of mind

Most of the public are searching to find

Trying equations of multiple drugs

Uppers, depressants, pedalled by thugs

In medical offices, out on the streets

Smack, crack and bennies, to snort or to eat

Or would you prefer some deadly new pills

Shipped in from China, packed with many thrills

Drugs that the doctors are happy to sell

Sending their clients into psychic hell

Sit in the chair and fill in the forms

We’ll have you drugged from the day you are born

MUSICAL CHAIRS, YOU’LL RUN LIKE A FOOL

THIS IS THE PURPOSE, THESE ARE THE RULES

WHEN MUSIC STOPS YOU DIVE FOR A CHAIR

BE READY, BE WARNED, FOREVER BEWARE

THEY’RE COMING TO GET YOU, TO TAKE YOU AWAY

THIS IS THE PRICE PROLETARIATE PAY

FOR BEING THE CLONES OF DEGENERATION

BRED BY THE MILLIONS FOR MANUAL LABOUR

TO BE SENT TO THE WARS, TO DIE IN YOUR PLACE

EFIGIES, MULTITUDES, WITH THE SAME FACE

SHOCKED, BLIND CONFUSION, ENGRAVED IN THEIR EYES

KNOWING THAT THEY ARE BORN JUST TO DIE

But whose turn is it to get in the chair?

Sing us a song, some old, Scottish air

Make yourself comfortable, now you are rich

You’ll never know when they will throw the switch
