    Bombers

      About "Bombers"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "Bombers"

      [Chorus]
      All clear wail the sirens
      Sunshine on the wasteland
      Old man sitting in the white sand
      Think we're in for a big surprise
      Right between the eyes

      Seemed a good idea
      To drop a bomb on the wasteland here
      Only one man could be seen
      And he was old and so serene
      Captain sat in his deck chair
      And the red light flashed Beware
      Pilot felt quite big-time
      As the bomb sailed through the air
      Well, they danced and sang
      When the bang went bang
      When the lights popped out
      And the smoke began to clear
      It was positively queer

      [Chorus]

      "Die" said the General
      "Cobblers" said the man
      So the Pentagon sent a cable
      And the Queen a telegram
      A-bombs, H-bombs, even very small ones
      Ripped apart that sand
      'Til the stench was just revolting
      And the sky a greenish tan
      But the soldier said "Sir,
      There's a crack in the world"
      And the figures went "squash",
      And the bits flew far and wide
      How the universe sighed!

      [Chorus: x2]

      When the smoke had blown away
      There was nothing left to view
      Except a man dear Lord who looked like you
      Floating high up in the sky
