  • In an upstairs room in Blackpool
    By the side of a northern sea
    The army had my father
    And my mother was having me

    Military Madness was killing my country
    Solitary Sadness comes over me
    After the school was over and I moved
    To the other side

    I found a different country but I never
    Lost my pride
    Military Madness was killing the country
    Solitary sadness creeps over me

    And after the wars are over
    And the body count is finally filed
    I hope that The Man discovers
    What's driving the people wild

    Military madness is killing your country
    So much sadness, between you and me
    War, War, War, War, War, War Writer/s: GRAHAM NASH
