Plenty More (LP Version)

Plenty More (LP Version)

UB40

On a radio wave the call to the grave
Is wrapped up in glory to fool the brave
They tell a tall story of all those who gave
All that they had for the freedom they'd save

On the TV broadcast they said it won't last
All over by Sunday consigned to the past
The clean-up starts Monday despite the bomb blasts
A brand new beginning the dye has been cast

[Chorus]
There's plenty more where that came from
Five megatons of oblivion
Sent with love from the pentegon
On a laser guided neutron bomb

But a satellite link says its worse than they think
They can't find the body and it's causing a stink
The guy in the oval is back on the drink
And Uncle Sam's poodle's in need of a shrink

It's been a ful year the family's can cheer
Their sons and their brothers are now in the clear
The war is all over but it would appear
That those left behind are all living in fear

[Chorus x2]

Gun fights salute
How many innocents die every day
Gun fights salute
Innocents die from the games that you play

You see
And there's always some deception
Like the under executions
That they forget to mention

You stop you stare you wonder
But you make the blunder
Your enemies draw nearer
With their souls like rolling thunder

And the tension
There's always some pretention
For the fall guy the patsy
The one they never mention

You play you war kingdom
Play with innocent lives
You keep the dice rolling
With elaborate

[Chorus]
