Beyond The Pale by Big Audio Dynamite


If you don't know where I come from
You better steer clear of my trail
From the dark side of London
That's way beyond the pale
My grandpa came from Russia
Stowed away hidden in some bales
He took my grandma dancing
To the air raid sirens wail
Then Saint George used his sword on the immigrant poor
'Cause he can't kill no dragon
If I was in those shoes
I'd say Soweto's gonna happen here too
I gotta get a message through
Tell everybody the news
And with the winter coming
Crossing all the borders
Through the smoke of war and rain
Papers out of order on a military train
A coat, a bag, a baby, status refugee
These are the people of my family
Don't anybody know that this city was made
Of immigrant blood and money
If I was in those shoes
A black shirt with playboy blues
I gotta get a message through
Tell everybody the news
And with the winter coming
Now there's a rocker in Vladivostok
Got every side by Jerry Lee
But for accidents of disorder
That guy could well be me
I want everybody to know this
I want everyone to hear
Immigration built the nation
You got a blood cross standing here
Now Saint George used his sword on the immigrant poor
'Cause he can't kill no dragon
If I was in those shoes
I'd say Soweto's gonna happen here too
I gotta get a message through
Tell everybody the news
And with the winter coming
Don't anybody know that the city was made
Of immigrant blood and money
If I was in those shoes
A black shirt with playboy blues
I gotta get a message through
Tell everybody the news
And with the winter coming
