Johnny Rumble:
The Great Mistake...

The guns have stopped firing
7:30 on a gentle July day
The 1st of the month
The last day for many
Your captains whistle has blown
Up over the top and away you go

Chorus:
Six Hundred thousand
Sent to their early grave
The Great British Fuck Up
On this gentle July day.

You expected in to be easy
Thought you’d survive to the end
A week left in the trenches
Paris in sight by weeks end
Yet you lay motionless
For all to be seen

Chorus:

Straight into the devils lair
Machine gun fire, Endless slaughter
Wave after wave of human death
March you did, died as well too.
What did you die for?
Only a mile or two.

Chorus:


John/KWP
