Pink Floyd – Us and Them – 1973


    Us (us, us, us, us) and them (them, them, them, them)
    And after all we’re only ordinary men
    And you (you, you, you)
    God only knows

    It’s not what we would choose (choose, choose) to do (to do, to do)
    Forward he cried from the rear
    And the front rank died
    And the general sat
    And the lines on the map

    Moved from side to side
    Black (black, black, black)
    And blue (blue, blue)
    And who knows which is which and who is who
    Up (up, up, up, up)

    And down (down, down, down, down)
    And in the end it’s only round ‘n round (round, round, round)
    Haven’t you heard it’s a battle of words
    The poster bearer cried
    « Listen son », said the man with the gun

    There’s room for you inside »I mean, they’re not gonna kill ya
    So if you give ’em a quick short, sharp, shock
    They won’t do it again. Dig it?
    I mean he get off lightly, ’cause I would’ve given him a thrashing
    I only hit him once! It was only a difference of opinion, but really
    I mean good manners don’t cost nothing do they, eh? »

    Down (down, down, down, down)
    And out (out, out, out, out)
    It can’t be helped that there’s a lot of it about
    With (with, with, with), without
    And who’ll deny it’s what the fighting’s all about?

    Out of the way
    It’s a busy day
    I’ve got things on my mind
    For the want of the price
    Of tea and a slice
    The old man died
