Uncle Son

Ray Davies, released on Muswell Hillbillies, © Davray Music Ltd. 1971

.

He was just a workin' man,

Simple rules and simple plans,

Fancy words he didn't understand,

He loved with his heart,

He worked with his hands.

.

Liberals dream of equal rights,

Conservatives live in a world gone by,

Socialists preach of a promised land,

But old uncle son, was an ordinary man.

.

Bless you uncle son,

They won't forget you, when the revolution comes.

.

Unionists tell you when to strike,

Generals tell you when to fight,

Preachers tell you wrong from right,

They'll feed you when you're born,

And use you all your life.

.

Bless you uncle son,

They won't forget you when the revolution comes.
