Olof Palme

Western Europe's still a civilized place
Despite those Americans all over the place
But just the other week, i saw it take a little dive
I have always believed that if you're lucky enough
To have a leader who is friendly, decent, honest and just
And not a Tory
You'd better keep him alive

So why'd they go and shoot Olof Palme
Why'd they go and gun that good man down.

Well, you didn't read about him in the English papers much
But he used to govern Sweden with a magic touch
Everybody liked him even though the liquor prices were high
And my god are they high

But all the taxation helped to pay the bills
For stuff like better work conditions and the curing of ills
It made sense, and ladies and gents that's why...

That's why I think we ought to have a drink for Olof Palme
Yes I think we ought to drink one to his name
(Pat Fish: Everyone except Max, who's playing guitar)
(Max Eider: Oh Gawd!)

Oh, what'd they have to go and shoot him for
Plenty of Prime Ministers deserve it much more
He was only coming home from the Cinema
And they shot him

Well, I don't know much about your politics
I only pick up stupid little bits that stick
But I wish they hadn't shot Olof Palme
Oh yes I wish they hadn't shot Olof Palme
Oh yes I wish they hadn't shot a good man down.
