Billy Bragg - Feed Of Man Lyrics

  • If you
  • Beat up, butcher, and
  • You bleed a man:
  • If you bang up and badger and
  • Bloodlet a man;
  • And then I come along
  • On the feet of man
  • And half way laff and cry bout
  • The meat of man,
  • And I do what I can to
  • Bale string and tie some ballad truths
  • Up cured out
  • For the feed of man
  • And
  • Folks try to tell me
  • That its on gods orders
  • That you bleed your man;
  • Its on gods good word that you
  • Bleed your man;
  • On gods plan print
  • That you dead a man;
  • Or you spit and curse and whip
  • Your man;
  • I say Ill help you fix and
  • Squeeze yourself up a new kind of a god
  • Of some kind;
  • One that tells you
  • Fertilyze and multyplye;
  • One that
  • Tells you:
  • Outsow and outblow,
  • Outplant and outgrow;
  • Outdo, and outrun, and outclimb, and out spread
  • Every other tree and bush
  • And brushy fruits and flower petalls;
  • Out fruit them all
  • For the feed of man;
  • Out stalk and out hunt and out think
  • For gods own sweet sake, out think! out think!
  • Outthink the fruits
  • Outgrow these animal kind and shapes of man!
  • It you miss and go down
  • Your dust will turn up on that long hot job
  • Once more again
  • To help in the feeding and the seed of man
  • And not in the bleeding and the end of man.
