Patrolling In An Afghan Wonderland (2018 version)

Patrolling In An Afghan Wonderland
By Ray Daley.
27/11/2018

Sand’s too bright, it’s just glistening
Past the wire, Dickers listening,
The desert is shite, Looks crappy tonight
Patrolling in an Afghan wonderland.

Gone away, the gozome bird
Here to stay, the radar dome bird
But it feels so wrong, As we go along
Patrolling in an Afghan wonderland.

In the compound we can’t build a snowman
Pretend we’re not eating Biscuits, Brown.
Ask us if we’re worried, We’ll say no man!
Just tell us that the Op is drawing down?

Later on, We’ll conspire
To ask IS, for a ceasefire.
Will the brass stand us down, then pass beers around?
Patrolling in an Afghan wonderland.

Sleigh bells ring, Are you listening?
With AK’s; the country’s bristling
Can we please go home? Leave this place alone,
Patrolling in an Afghan wonderland.

THE END

With heartfelt apologies to David Bowie I present this. To be sung to the tune of “Fashion“.

Fascist

There’s a brand new guy
but I don’t know his name
That people from bad homes
Liked again and again
He’s big and bland
full of tension and fear
He’ll do it over there but we don’t do it here

[CHORUS]
Fascist! Turn to the left
Fascist! Turn to the right
Oooh, Fascist!
We are the goon squad
and we’re coming to town
Beep-beep
Beep-beep

Listen to me – don’t listen to me
Talk to me – don’t talk to me
Dance with me – don’t dance with me, no
Beep-beep

There’s a brand new guy,
but he’s not very clear
That people from good homes
are voting for this year
He’s loud and tasteless
and I’ve heard it before
You shout it down while you’re marching
on the Senate floor
Oh bop, Fascist

[CHORUS]

Listen to me – don’t listen to me
Talk to me – don’t talk to me
Vote for me – don’t vote for me, no
Beep-beep
Beep-beep

Oh, bop, do do do do do do do do
Fa-fa-fa-fa-Fascist
Oh, bop, do do do do do do do do
Fa-fa-fa-fa-Fascist
La-la la la la la la-la
