Bombers SONG LYRICS

by

David Bowie

Ringtones Ringtones: Send Bombers Ringtones to your Cell

All clear wail the sirens

Sunshine on the waste land

Old man sitting in the white sand

Think we're in for a big surprise

Right between the eyes

Seemed a good idea

To drop a bomb on the waste land, yeah

Only one man could be seen

And he was old and so serene

Captain sat in his deck chair

And the red light flashed "Beware"

Pilot felt quite big time

As the bomb sailed through the air

Well, they danced and sang

When the bang went bang

When the lights popped out

And the smoke began to clear

It was positively queer

All clear wail the sirens

Sunshine on the waste land

Old man sitting in the white sand

Think we're in for a big surprise

Right between the eyes

"Die", said the general

"Cobblers", said the man

So the Pentagon sent a cable

And the Queen a telegram

A bombs, H bombs, even very small ones

Ripped apart that sand

'Til the stench was just revolting

And the sky a greenish tan

But the soldier said "Sir

There's a crack in the world"

And the figures went "Squash"

And the bits flew far and wide

How the universe sighed

All clear wail the sirens

Sunshine on the waste land

Old man sitting in the white sand

Think we're in for a big surprise

Right between the eyes

All clear wail the sirens

Sunshine on the waste land

Old man sitting in the white sand

Think we're in for a big surprise

Right between our eyes

When the smoke had blown away

There was nothing left in view

Except a man, dear Lord, who look like You

He used to look in my holy book
