Song Meaning
Verse 1
Don't start that talking
I could talk all night
My mind was sleepwalking
While I'm putting the world to rights
Call careers information
Have you got yourself an occupation?
Verse 2
Oliver's army is here to stay
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today
Verse 3
There was a Checkpoint Charlie
He didn't crack a smile
But it's no laughing party
When you've been on the murder mile
All it takes is one itchy trigger
One more widow, one less white nigger
Verse 4
Oliver's Army is here to stay
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today
Verse 5
Hong Kong is up for grabs
London is full of Arabs
We could be in Palestine
Overrun by a Chinese line
With the boys from the Mersey and the Thames and the Tyne
But there's no danger
It's a professional career
Though it could be arranged
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 6
Oliver's Army is here to stay
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
