LITTLE BOY SOLDIERS
Sometimes punk rock is the only possible response. This is "Little Boy Soldiers" by the Jam, dedicated to the 2008 presidential campaign.
Its funny how you never knew what my name was,
Our only contact was a form for the election.
These days I find that you don't listen,
These days I find that we're out of touch,
These days I find that I'm too busy,
So why the attention now you want my assistance -
What have you done for me?
You've gone and got yourself in trouble,
No you want me to help you out.
These days I find that I can't be bothered,
These days I find that its all too much,
To pick up a gun and shoot a stranger,
But I've got no choice so here I come -
