Snakes And Ladders

from by yaya club



Since I've been working in this darn gone place
I don't see no ladders and I'm slipping down those snakes
And I ain't sleeping, since you been gone I been awake
Honey, darling, please. Come back for goodness sake

There's a woman in the street today, she's been crying all day long
Her soldier husband's back today, but he's coming back in a box
And it blows my mind, cos I don't see the point in killing folks
For a race that claims to be civilised, we're always throwing rocks

So come along to see the show, it's sure to be a thrill
Take your semi-automatic and remember to write your will
Cos you're going out boy, someone's gonna shoot you through the neck
I don't know about you but I ain't dying for somebody else's cheque

This was supposed to be a love song but it's grown arms and legs
I was supposed to tell you all the thoughts and feelings in my head
But I got carried away, I got talking about the war
If you ain't going to put in the effort girl, then this ain't worth fightin for
