Billy Bragg - Everywhere Lyrics

  • Dig in boys for an extended stay
  • Those were the final orders to come down that day
  • Waiting to be saved in the philippines
  • Youll wait forever for the young marines
  • Now I believe to be here is right
  • But I have to say Im scared tonight
  • Crouching in this hole with a mouth full of sand
  • What comes first the country or the man
  • Look at those slanted eyes coming up over the hill
  • Catching us by surprise, its time to kill or be killed
  • Over here, over there, its the same everywhere
  • A boy cries out for his mama before he dies for his home
  • All my life I wanted to be
  • As clever and strong as my best friend lee
  • We grew up together along half moon bay
  • Lee was japanese, born in the usa
  • When tommy was fighting jerry along the river seine
  • Me and lee wanted to do the same
  • Then they bombed pearl harbour at the break of day
  • I was headed for these islands while lee was hauled away
  • They said look at his slanted eyes, hes guilty as guilty can be
  • Sent here as enemy spies to sabatage the land of the free
  • I never got home, my platoon was never saved
  • That little fox hole became my island grave
  • Lee got out of jail but a prisoner he remained
  • Till he ended his own life to lose that ball and chain
  • And they said oh little slanted eyes cant you forgive and forget
  • And he said, oh mr friendly ghost
  • Can you catch water in a net?
