Song Meaning
Verse 1

Verse 6

With just a word in Mr. Churchill's ear
If you're out of luck or out of work
We could send you to Johannesburg
Verse 9
Oliver's army is here to stay
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
Than here today
Verse 10
And I would rather be anywhere else
Than here today
And I would rather be...
