Thanks to A-T from Sweden for the idea for this.......

CHAOS
















Do you remember the days in '69, seeing all the skinheads standing in a line
Foaming at the mouth, Waiting for a fight, High boots, cropped hair, what a fuckin sight

Come back of the skinhead, come back of the boot
People that we don't beat up, We're gonna fucking shoot
We are the new breed, we will have our say, we are the new breed, we are today

Down in East London, Trouble on the street,
On the street corners, the gangs do meet
Talking about the weekend, What they're gonna do?
If you aint careful gonna do you!

Come back of the skinhead, come back of the boot
People that we don't beat up, We're gonna fucking shoot
We are the new breed, we will have our say
we are the new breed, we are today

Chaos in the city Civil war now,
Skinheads know what to do, skinheads know how
Skinhead with his boots on Nobodys fool ,
Skinheads taking over Chaos is the rule!
Chaos, chaos, chaos - dont give a toss
Chaos, chaos, chaos - dont give a toss!

YESTERDAYS HEROES

From the cradle to the grave
always trying to be brave
Show his courage to everyone
From his birth to his death
Gotta prove that he's the best
Done everything thats gotta be done 

Cause he's Yesterday's Hero
Yesterday's Hero in every way
Yesterday's Hero
Yesterday's Hero is forgotten today

Wants to try his hand at pop
Have a record at the top
All his records are lots of fun
Concerts city style
They all make you smile
Ain't it all a load of fun?
Cause he's Yesterday's Hero
Yesterday's Hero in every way
Yesterday's Hero
Yesterday's Hero is forgotten today

On Telly every day
Copied in every way
Fans ask for an autograph
Some kind of superman
Photographs for a fan
Don't it all make yer laugh?
Cause he's Yesterday's Hero
Yesterday's Hero in every way
Yesterday's Hero
Yesterday's Hero is forgotten today
 
















CLOCKWORK SKINHEAD

Wearing braces of red, white, and blue
doing what he thinks he ought to do
Used to be a punk and a mod too
His mother says its just a phase he's going through

He's a Clockwork skinhead, just a clockwork skinhead
Clockwork skinhead- got no choice
He's a Clockwork skinhead, just a clockwork skinhead
clockwork skinhead-One of the boys

Take him to the pub, buy him a beer
Tell him what he wants to hear
Wind him up like clockwork toy
wants to be a man but he's just a boy

He's a Clockwork skinhead, just a clockwork skinhead
Clockwork skinhead- got no choice
He's a Clockwork skinhead, just a clockwork skinhead
clockwork skinhead-One of the boys

Believes everything the papers say
What's he gonna be today
What is it hip to be
Will he be himself or will he copy me?

He's a Clockwork skinhead, just a clockwork skinhead
Clockwork skinhead- got no choice
He's a Clockwork skinhead, just a clockwork skinhead
clockwork skinhead-One of the boys

ACAB - All Coppers Are Bastards

Walking down the road with my mates one night
We got in a little fight
Geezer run towards me with a knife in his fist
I got cut along the wrist

ACAB ACAB ACAB
All Coppers Are Bastards

Coppers come up & say what's wrong with you?
come with us and see what we can do
Next thing I knew I was in a cell
All my mates in there as well

ACAB ACAB ACAB
All Coppers Are Bastards

I had to go to Court to plead my case
Jury didnt like the look of my face
Judge said I'm gonna put you away
Asked if I had anything to say, I said.......

ACAB ACAB ACAB
All Coppers Are Bastards

1984

Britains in trouble, countrys bled dry
handicapped and eldery have all gotta die
no one fights the system, fight with each other
the combine is laughing, scared of big brother

What are we gonna get
What are we gonna get
What are we gonna get
in 1984

Rats leave the sinking ship, theyve got their money made
third world countries, sending us aid
people queue up just to get their ration
not the birth, but the death of a nation

What are we gonna get
What are we gonna get
What are we gonna get
in 1984

Will there be some heroes,into 85
when the bomb is dropped,and how do you stay alive
Orwell said it all, he looked the future in the face
Giant test tube babies,build a brand new race

What are we gonna get
What are we gonna get
What are we gonna get
in 1984

ONE LAW FOR THEM

Go to football, throw a brick,
Get no mercy, months in nick
Riot in the ghetto, red alert,
Guilty free, innocent hurt
 
We've been warned of rivers of blood
See the trickle before the flood
Pretend nothing happened, make no fuss
One law for them, One for us
 
One law for them, One law for them,
One law for them, and another law for us
 
No fun, no homes, no job, no use
what else is used as an excuse
Families fighting, familes looting
next theres death, then theres shooting 
 
One law for them, One law for them,
One law for them, and another law for us
 
Riots in London, blame Old Bill
We've been lucky no ones killed
Violence on the streets, more to follow
Freedom for those freedom fighters
 
One law for them, One law for them,
One law for them, and another law for us

EVIL

I like breaking arms and legs
slapping faces, wringing necks
Now i'll knife you in the back
Kick your bones until they crack

Im Evil, evil, evil, evil
Evil, evil, evil, evil

Jump up and down upon your head
Kick you around 'til your dead
Fill your body full of lead
See the roads turn to red

Im Evil, evil, evil, evil
Evil, evil, evil, evil

I don't like trendy cunts who pose
Gonna punch you in the Nose
Stick my Marten in your crotch
Don't like you, you're too much

Im Evil, evil, evil, evil
Evil, evil, evil, evil

Im Evil, evil, evil, evil
Evil, evil, evil, evil

SORRY

I won't say sorry for what i've done
I won't say sorry for having fun
I won't take the blame
No I ain't gonna be ashamed
Won't say sorry for what i've done
I don't say sorry to anyone

Shout it out
Shout it out
I don't give a damn cos im proud of what i am
Shout it out
Shout it out
I don't give a damn 'cos i'm proud of what i am
I don't give a damn 'cos i'm proud of what i am

I won't say sorry to you
If you think I will you know what you can do
I won't apologise

I won't say sorry to you
You can stick that up your arsehole too

Shout it out
Shout it out
I don't give a damn cos im proud of what i am
Shout it out

I don't give a damn 'cos i'm proud of what i am
I don't give a damn 'cos i'm proud of what i am

I won't say sorry for the way I act
I won't say sorry for the manners I lack
I won't say sorry at all
I won't say sorry 'cos it makes me feel small
I won't say sorry for the way I act
I won't say sorry and thats a fact
Shout it out

I don't give a damn cos im proud of what i am
Shout it out
Shout it out
I don't give a damn 'cos i'm proud of what i am
I don't give a damn 'cos i'm proud of what i am

Wonderful World

Just left school cant find no work
Be a building labourer or an office clerk
Cant believe the men  youve seen
On the scrapheap and youre only 17
 
What a wonderful world
What a wonderful world this is
 
Standing on the corner waiting for a bus
Old Bill come and try to nick you for SUS
You try tell them that youve done nothing wrong
They tell you not to sing the same song
 
What a wonderful world
What a wonderful world this is
 
Standing in the pub on your own for the night
Group of nutters try to pick a fight
You can try and plead for your life
Theyre still cut you with a fucking great knife 
 
What a wonderful world
What a wonderful world this is

FIVE MORE YEARS

Who wants to work when the cash aint there
Who wants to get up where theres no where to stay!!!
Who wants a job when theres nothing about,
You can stuff employment, thats what we say
 
Sleeping all day, sitting up all night
poncing fags thats all right
We're on the dole and we're proud of it
We're ready for 5 More Years
 
Don't want to know about the privileged few
Don't want to know what its costing the land
Don't want to join the job hunting queue
I just want to sit here and hold out my hand
 
Sleeping all day, sitting up all night
poncing fags thats all right
we're on the dole and we're proud of it
We're ready for 5 More Years
 
You can keep the politicians and what they do
You can keep  your songs about the down and outs
You can praise the politicians if you knew
Theyre responsible for us down and outs
 
Cheers to the Government  who cause redundancies
Cheers to the Unions who make men strike
Cheers to the men who bring the country to its knees
And cheers to us layabouts, the life we like
 
Sleeping all day, sitting up all night
poncing fags thats all right
We're on the dole and we're proud of it
We're ready for 5 More Years
