The Real Great Britain

Union jack and union jill
Back up and down the same old hill
Sell the flag to the youths
But who swallows the bill
Murdoch she wrote
Him have his hand in the till

Blairful of thatcher
Stuck on the 45
The suits have changed
But the old ties survive
New britannia cool
Who are you trying to fool?
Behind your fashion-tashion I see nothing at all

Care for the commodity
Cuts the nation into three
Rich pickings for the first
Bottom third you never see
While middle england keeps swinging its
Loyalty
No concern for the future
Just with dead royalty

So will the real, the real great britan
Step forward
This is the national identity parade
Shoe gazer nation forever looking
Backwards
Time to reject the sixties charade

Not enough schools
Not enough homes
Just phony care in his millennium dome
More prime cuts than beef on the bone
And there’s too many questions you’re
Not answering tone

Union jack and union jill
Back up and down the same old hill
Sell the flag to the youths
But who swallows the bill
Murdoch she wrote
Him have his hand in the till

So will the real, the real great britan
Step forward
This is the national identity parade
Shoe gazer nation forever looking
Backwards
Time to reject the sixties charade
 

OhNo!

Little Steven - Voice of America
Marvin Gaye - What's Going On (sociopolitical, at least)
The Clash - Sandinista
Phil Ochs

And I like a bunch of albums that have a lot of political content but have too many other/love songs to be called strictly political - Bruce Cockburn, esp. between '79 and '84, Billy Bragg, Dylan, Marley. As far as Midnight Oil, I really like their political songs, esp. on Earth & Sun & Mun (Truganini, My Country)

Still gives me goosebumps:

Naxalite

Brothers and sisters of the soul unite
We are one, indivisible and strong
They may try to break us
But they dare not underestimate us
They know our memories are long
A mass of sleeping villages
That’s how they’re pitching it
At least that’s what they try to pretend
But check out our history
So rich and revolutionary
A prophecy
That we will rise again!

Like springing tigers
We encircle the cities
To the future we will take an oath
High up in the mountains
Deep in the forest
Our home is the undergrowth.

And we must never give up
Until the land is ours
No never give in
’til we have taken the power.

Because, I am just a naxalite warrior
Fighting for survival and equality
Policeman beating up me, my brother and my father
My mother crying ’can’t believe this reality’

Iron like a lion from zion
This one going out to all youth, man and woman
Original master ’d’ ’pon the microphone stand
Cater for no sceptical man me don’t give a damn!

’cos me a naxalite warrior.....




and

Buzzin'

This here’s the miracle of modern creation
So we say jump up, jump up because you know we’re buzzing
Any time we come I say we shock and a sting
Yeah, jump up, jump up because you know we’re buzzing
Any time we come we shock and sting
Get up, get up come and do something
Like a fly in the sky forever working
I know we shock and we sting anytime we come we getup, getup

This is the miracle of modern creation
We come out of the tunnel not twisted or bitter
Approach the future with a sound that is fitter
Equipping our minds to deal with every situation
This here’s the miracle of modern creation
Abandon all your first impressions
Come and take part in this conscious session
Look to the past to get inspiration
Move yourselves forward with the dub accelaration

Can’t live my life with no rhythm or rhyme
Done enough chilling got to organise my time
You now see I ain’t standing still
Just watch me now I’ve got a lifetime to fill
’cos I’m buzzing
Yeah jump up, jump up cos you know we’re buzzing
Any time we come we shock and sting


We come so far so fast laying down foundations
Paving the way for the next generation
What we deal with millenium training
Come jump aboard now there’s enough time remaining
Been checking the roots so we know where we are going
Time we were reaping for the years we’ve been sowing
All across europe collecting like minded
Not here to misguide or be divided

Can’t live my life with no rhythm or rhyme
Done enough chilling got to organise my time
Drums and bass
Junglist massive
Jump up, jump up cos you know we are buzzing
Any time we come we shock and we sting
Get up, get up, get up and do something
Like a fly in the sky forever working

Chandrasonic you’re mmmmmmmmmmad
Chandrasonic you’re mmmmmmmmmmad
Can’t live my life with no rhythm or rhyme
Done enough chilling got to organise my time
No sense in standing still
Just watch me now I’ve got a lifetime to fill
I’m buzzing
Yeah come with me come with me
Jump up, jump up
’cos you know we’re buzzing
Any time we come we shock and sting
Any time we come we a shock and sting

We come out the tunnel not twisted nor bitter.
 

OhNo!

There's a road train going nowhere
Roads are cut, lines are down
We'll be staying at the Roma Bar
Till that monsoon passes on

The backbone of this country's broken
The land is cracked and the land is sore
Farmers are hanging on by their fingertips
We cursed and stumbled across that shore

I hear much support for the monarchy
I hear the Union Jack's to remain
I see Namatjira in custody
I see Truganini's in chains

And the world it won't stand still

Blue collar work it don't get you nowhere
You just go round and round in debt
Somebody's got you on that treadmill, mate
And I hope you're not beaten yet

I hear much support for the monarchy
I see the Union Jack in flames, let it burn
I see Namatjira with dignity
I see Truganini's in chains

Although, BBB's mention of the Clash (how's that for REAL punk, huh?) and Public Enemy deserve honourable mentions. :)
