Us and Them Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Us and them
And after all we're only ordinary men
Me and you
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do
Verse 2
Forward he cried from the rear
And the front rank died
And the General sat, and the lines on the map
Moved from side to side
Verse 3
Black and blue
And who knows which is which and who is who
Up and down
And in the end it's only 'round and 'round and 'round
Verse 4
"Haven't you heard it's a battle of words?"
The poster bearer cried
"Listen son," said the man with the gun
"There's room for you inside."
Verse 5
Down and out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about
With, without
And who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about
Verse 6
Get out of the way, it's a busy day
And I've got things on my mind
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died
