Shepherds of the Nation

Ray Davies, released on Preservation: Act 2, © Davray Music Ltd. 1974

.

Down with sex and sin,

Down with pot, heroin.

Down with pornography,

Down with lust.

Down with vice lechery and debauchery.

.

We are the new centurians.

Shepherds of the Nations.

We'll keep on our guard

For sin and degradation.

We are the national guard

Against filth and depravity,

Perversion and vulgarity,

Homosexuality.

Keep it clean.

.

Down with nudity,

Breasts that are bare and pubic hair.

We are here to cleanse humanity

From the man in the raincoat's

Pale faced glare.

So sodomites beware.

.

We are the new centurians,

Shepherds of the Nation.

We'll keep on our guard

For sin and degradation.

We are the national, guard

Against filth and depravity,

Perversion and vulgarity,

Homosexuality.

Keep it clean.

.

I visualise a day when people will be free

From evils like perversion and pornography.

We'll cast out Satan and we'll set the sinners free,

So people of the nation unite.

.

Put all the pervs in jail,

Bring back the birch, and the cat of nine tails.

Bring back corporal punishment

Bring back the stocks

And the axeman's block.

Let righteousness prevail.

.

Down with nudity and hard core magazines.

We'll bring religion back

And keep our country clean.

Keep it clean.

.

We are the new centurians

Shepherds of the Nation.

We'll keep on our guard

For sin and degradation.

We are the national guard

Against filth and depravity.

Perversion and vulgarity,

Homosexuality.

Keep it clean.
