Is That What You Fought The War For? Lyrics

Artist: Stiff Little Fingers
Album: Now Then

Yes, I know you did your bit back then, but what was it you won?
Take a good look around you now, whose side were you on?
And I wonder if you understand at all
And I wonder if you ever ask yourself

When everyone has an equal chance to live the life they buy
When free health care can save your life, but queue until you die
Then I wonder if you understand at all
And I wonder if you ever ask yourself

(Chorus:)
Is that what you fought the war for
Is that why you fought the war
Is that what you fought the war for
Is that why you fought the war

When still the muscles make the man, and men make women pay
when Britain's flag is a badge of hate, and just the fair can play
When still the homeless, jobless cry, when money shouts and lies
and buys off just enough to vote, pass by the other side
Then I wonder if you understand at all
And I wonder do you never ask yourself

(Chorus)

At the going down of the sun
And in the light of day
All you need remember is
We won't be taken like your generation again

(Chorus)
