Soul Boy

All down one street, side by side
Live all the sad old exiles
They fled from war to the shore
Of Hell

And not one salutes the former chief
Who suffered the most and salvaged least
Head of state, Potentate
Will you see that was me
Yes it was

Soul boy is down the street
Perching on cloven feet
Baying a song of woe
Says “Give up your soul”

I think they hold me to blame
But I only filled some empty graves
It had to be it was them or me
And you know which way I chose

Soul boy is down the street
Perching on cloven feet
Baying a song of woe
Says “Give up your soul”

Listen to me little man
Being an ex-fuhrer’s not so bad
Marvin Gaye, Marvin Gaye
Well you see he’s gone away
Yes he has

Soul boy has gone to war
And no-one dares ask what for
He’s doomed and he’s white and mean
Imagine, he laughed at me

Oh now be ever so humble
There’s no place like home
When your home’s now a graveyard
And you are broke and alone
And you’re out of the family of woman and man
