Slash and Burn Lyrics

Artist: Graham Parker
Album: Human Soul


D A D A
The world was stripped of beauty baby By the working man
He was told it was his duty baby Again and again and again
They took the slaves from Africa baby Along with sugar sacks
To build the British Empire baby And break everybody's back

CHORUS
E A E A
Hey hey slash and burn Hey hey slash and burn
E A D E
Hey hey slash and burn That's how they feed the world

They burned the mighty rain forest The Howler Monkeys screamed
They turned it into burgers For the monkeys on the street
The paths were forged with promise Hung up like jewels and gold
While Atlas the Adonis Was holding up the globe

CHORUS
Hey hey slash and burn Hey hey slash and burn
Hey hey slash and burn That's how they feed the world
E A
That's how they feed the world (then) Instrumental

America is a car park London is a dump
China's for the Chinese Russia is for chumps
Criminals were elected To divide the world
For every head a bullet For every swine a pearl (then) REPEAT CHORUS (twice)
