La canción del día de "Herrera en COPE" es 'Oliver's Army' de David Costelo

"Es la historia de una canción...

En 1977 David Costelo escribió esta pieza 'Oliver's Army' ('El ejército de Oliver'), basándose en el conflicto de Irlanda del Norte tras ver disturbios en Belfast y a los soldados patrullando. Para muchos aquellos fue un alegato ant imperialista y él dijo: "Déjense de tontunas sólo es música pop".



Letra de la canción 'Oliver's Army' de Davis Costelo & The Attractions

Don't start that talking
I could talk all night
My mind was sleepwalking
While I'm putting the world to right
Call careers information
Have you got yourself an occupation?
Oliver's army is here to stay
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today
There was a Checkpoint Charlie
He didn't crack a smile
But it's no laughing party
When you've been on the murder mile
Only takes one itchy trigger
One more widow, one less white nigger
Oliver's Army is here to stay
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today
Hong Kong is up for grabs
London is full of Arabs
We could be in Palestine
Overrun by the Chinese line
With the boys from the Mersey and the Thames and the Tyne
But there's no danger
It's a professional career
Though it could be arranged
With just a word in Mr. Churchill's ear
If you're out of luck or out of work
We could send you to Johannesburg
Oliver's Army is here to stay
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
