Album “TRB Two”


Una canzone che fa il paio con The Murder Of Liddle Towers degli Angelic Upstarts.
Dedicata a Liddle Towers, un elettricista e pugile dilettante di 39 anni che nel 1976 fu arrestato per ubriachezza e fu poi massacrato di botte fino alla morte da sei agenti di polizia. Nel 1978 gli assassini di Liddle Towers furono scagionati da ogni accusa con la motivazione che si era trattato di un “justifiable homicide”…
He wasn't a loony with a sawn-off gun
A dangerous terrorist on the run
He'd never been mugging or molested a nun
He was really quite a regular guy...
Six pints sober in the club one night
He started to argue with the law outside -
Gets arrested and his hands are tied

Lie lie lie diddley lie
Die die die Liddley die

Well they kicked him far and they kicked him wide
He was kicked outdoors, he was kicked inside
Kicked in the front and the back and the side
It really was a hell of a fight...
He screamed blue murder in the cell that night
But he must have been wrong cos they all deny it
Gateshead station - police and quiet

Lie lie lie diddley lie
Die die die Liddley die

It was eight to one and the one man died
But the coroner said he was satisfied
Killing Liddle was justified
He really was a desperate man...
So if you figure on staying alive
Button your lip and just swallow your pride
And don't make trouble when your hands are tied

Lie lie lie diddley lie
Why why why Liddley die?
