  • 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
    Liddley-die...

    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
    Liddley-die...

    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
    Liddley-die...

    Lie lie lie diddley lie
    Why why why Liddley die? Writer/s: Thomas Robinson
