" His Majesty signed with his own rubber stamp""



When The Tigers Broke Free Lyrics



It was just before dawn

One miserable morning in black 'forty four.

When the forward commander

Was told to sit tight

When he asked that his men be withdrawn.

And the Generals gave thanks

As the other ranks held back

The enemy tanks for a while.

And the Anzio bridgehead

Was held for the price

Of a few hundred ordinary lives.


And old King George

Sent Mother a note

When he heard that father was gone.

It was, I recall,

In the form of a scroll,

With gold leaf and all.

And I found it one day

In a drawer of old photographs, hidden away.

And my eyes still grow damp to remember

His Majesty signed

With his own rubber stamp.


It was dark all around

There was frost in the ground

When the tigers broke free

And no one survived

From the Royal Fusiliers Company C

They were all left behind,

Most of them dead,

The rest of them dying.

And that's how the High Command

Took my daddy from me.

can you believe he started with this crap?-


Doctor doctor!

I'm in bed

Achin' head

Gold is lead

Choke on bread


Gold is lead

Jesus bled

Pain is red

Are goon

Grow go

Greasy spoon

You swoon

June bloom


Music seems to help the pain

Seems to cultivate the brain.

Doctor kindly tell your wife that

I'm alive - flowers thrive - realize - realize




he came a long long way. but Roger will never be as good a lyricist as Syd
