The Housemartins

"Stand At Ease"

This country is protected from the red disease
By men who carry toys and hide themselves in trees
When I was young I said who's that in pyjamas
If we keep our mouths shut they'll promise not to harm us

Mary had a little lamb its fleece as white as snow
She dressed it up in uniform and taught it yes and no
When I was young I said who's that in pyjamas
If we keep our mouths shut they'll promise not to harm us

Is there any point in raising questions?
Is there any point in raising flags?
Is there any point in singing anthems?
How long must we turn our backs?
Stand at ease! Stand at ease!

Ask me no questions, tell me no lies
Have you seen a copper cleverly disguised
He's reading the news and he's telling you lies
The country's getting on like chalk and cheese (Stand at ease)
They're locking up anyone who disagrees (Stand at ease)

When I was young I said who's that in pyjamas
If we keep our mouths shut they'll promise not to harm us

Is there any point in raising questions?
Is there any point in raising flags?
Is there any point in singing anthems?
How long must we turn our backs?
Stand at ease! Stand at ease!
