The Eton Rifles Lyrics

The Eton Rifles by The Jam  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The Eton Rifles Sup up your beer and collect your fags
There's a row going on down near Slough
Get out your mat and pray to the West
I'll get out mine and pray for myself.

Thought you were smart when you took them on
But you didn't take a peep in their artillery room
All that rugby puts hairs on your chest
What chance have you got against a tie and a crest ?

Come out and play, what a nice day, for the Eton Riot force, Eton Riot force
Come out and play, I hope rain stops play, with the Eton Riot force, Eton Riot force

Thought you were clever when you lit the fuse
Tore down the House of Commons in your brand new shoes
Composed a revolutionary symphony
Then went to bed with a charming young thing.

Come out and play, cheers then mate, its the Eton Riot force, Eton Riot force
Come out and play, an extremist scr*pe, with the Eton Riot force, Eton Riot force

What a catalyst you turned out to be
Loaded the guns then you run off home for your tea
Left me standing, like a guilty schoolboy.

What a catalyst you turned out to be
Loaded the guns then you run off home for your tea
Left me standing, like a naughty schoolboy.

We came out of it naturally the worst
Beaten and bloody and I was sick down my shirt
We were no match for their untamed wit
Though some of the lads said they'd be back next week.

Come out and play, there's a price to pay, to the Eton Riot force, Eton Riot force
Come out and play, I'd prefer the plague, to the Eton Riot force, Eton Riot force

Come out and play, there's a price to pay, to the Eton Riot force, Eton Riot force
COme out and play, I'd prefer the plague, to the Eton Riot force, Eton Riot force
Eton Rifles, Eton riot force
Eton Rifles, Eton Riot force
