Side Three, 2002  (CD)  Editions PAF! PAF 003


Mount Vesuvius was a member of Slade
He replaced Jim Lea in the hit parade
Noddy Holder came down to the brook
He said "One hand washes quicker than the other one, look"

The disconnection of the ruling class goes on

The poor are brutalized
And the bourgeois is king
But the cherry on top, well it can't even sing;
Its lips are drawn back to make a strangling sound
Like horses laughing on a burial mound

The disconnection of the ruling class goes on

If you have a nightmare, reach for my hand
You remind me of someone in Nextdoorland

The disconnection of the ruling class goes on
