CHUMBAWAMBA


One By One Lyrics

Pontius Pirate came to our town
Up to the dockyards to see the picket line
We asked him to help but he just turned around
He's the leader of the union now
Leader of the union
All of our questions he ignored
He washed his hands and he dreams of his reward
A seat in the House of Lords
One by one
The ships come sailing in
One by one
The ships come sailing in
We live for words and die for words
Principles we can afford
When all our Brothers turn to Lords
Whose side are you on?
You tell the world your hands are tied
History three times denied
A sea of changes three miles wide
Whose side are you on?
One by one
The ships come sailing in
One by one
The ships come sailing in
This conspiracy of shame
Murder by some other name
Play up and play the game
Whose side are you on?
If any ask us why we died
We tell them that oue fearless leader lied
Sold us out down the riverside
Whose side are you on?
One by one
The ships come sailing in
One by one
The ships come sailing in

I think it's all right, apart from where it 'says we tell them that our fearless leader lied' I think there is no 'fearless'
