Lyrics

I used to be a child,
I loved my Fatherland,
He took me by the hand but,
Daddy's going to get you,
Daddy's going to get you in the end.

Listening to the big lies,
The media ignore our cries,
They'll sit back and watch us all die,
Daddy's going to get you,
Daddy's going to get you in the end.

Children raped in Third World towns,
Napalmed dying all around,
While the US is safe and sound,
Daddy's going to get you,
Daddy's going to get you in the end.

Notes

This demo version was performed at Alton Road, Wallisdown. It was recorded to cassette tape just after John and Math had finished writing it, hence its rough and ready feel.

Instrumentation:
Math Charlton - Bass guitar and vocal
John Copestake - Acoustic guitar
