The Proclaimers Life With You

Dedicated to Tony Blair.

Thousands sign no Tony Blair comeback letter

War criminals like Tony Blair not welcome in our universities...

an anti war demonstrator dressed as bloodied forme 5133128654
Your prose is elegant
as you demonstrate contempt, that's true..
And the targets you attack
mostly deserve a whack -from you
Yes you're entertaining
You fill up the page
Fill it up with your rage..
But now there's a doubt
over the wisdom you hand out -in spades
Please tell us which you think
is the country we should next help -invade
What a bloody carnage
you cheered us into
And the others like you…

You never wore a uniform
Unless it was a uniform
of a school or youth organization
But from watching others do
What they would never do
holds a sad fascination..

And now I'm reminded
by feelings so strong
of Bernie Taupin's lyric
to Sir Elton's song(1)
Can you say the hardest word?

'Cause you demand apologies
From public figures on their knees
As you invite them to say "So long"
So let's hear your rendition
of words of contrition
for getting it so wrong

Would you like to say something? [..Something]
Would you like to say sorry? [..Sorry]
Sorry [..Sorry]
That's S-O-R-R-Y
