  • They said Ned Ludd was an idiot boy
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    That all he could do was wreck and destroy
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd had Japanese eyes
    Ned Ludd heard nine ladies cries
    Ned Ludd had Japanese eyes
    Japanese eyes

    The history books tell you Ned's reason had fled
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    When he bashed the monster engine till it was dead
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd had Japanese eyes
    Ned Ludd heard stick babies cries
    Ned Ludd had Japanese eyes
    Japanese eyes
    Japanese eyes

    He turned to his workmates and said: 'Death to Machines'
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    They tread on our future and they stamp on our dreams
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd had Japanese eyes
    Ned Ludd heard stick babies cries
    Ned Ludd had Japanese eyes
    Japanese eyes

    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
    Ned Ludd, Ned, Ned Ludd
