Romani Ite Domum [Romans go home]

ÜberPlebs
Lingua: Inglese



Dall'album "Beelzebush meets the ÜberPlebs"
(2004)

Lo slogan "Yankee go home"...latinizzato in questo hip hop dedicato alla coppia Bush/Blair. Come si può vedere da questo sito, dal quale si può anche scaricare la canzone, si tratta di uno slogan utilizzato ampiamente in manifestazioni contro la guerra in Iraq... forse ripreso da qualche fonte classica.
The truth of the matter is, if you listen carefully, Saddam would still be in power if he were the President of the United States and the world would be a lot better off.

The truth of the matter, listen carefully, that every single human's the same as me, in the fact we're fighting to be free, whether that freedom be from money, or whether to live life happily, or maybe fighting for my life from your bombs as I run to flee

I lie awake in the dark of the night coz the information gives me insight into the truth of this matter the dark and the light, why is there never an end to this fight

And as we see through the lies the sun burns our eyes, when you try to keep us in our place, we spend the time getting wise

If he could be turned he would become a powerful ally. Yes, he would be a great asset. Can it be done?

We here in Britain stand shoulder with our American friends
In the interest of freedom and democracy we are presented with a grand hypocrisy. The risk is so high to security that we cannot be as free as we used to be

Neo-Labour clear and present danger, fundamental USA who you gonna kill today? (4 times)

You still swear that you're taking care of the free world, a new flag unfurled and a smell of freedom in the air
You are appeasing the American right wing, you're not a statesman, you just pick up a payment

You're going downstairs, Blair, out of the air, you're a napalm killer, they all go down there (2 times)

Stay inside, don't drink or eat anything/Don't be inhaling don't be ingesting

The motivator is fear, and then the pay off is, you know, we're going to go out and kill the bad guys. Its a very simple black and white world that they er, paint and portray

We vote for no more war, that we follow rule of law, if you don't know what it's good for, listen to the tunes we made before

I smell pants on fire is that Tony Blair, liar, getting your vote - better get your coat. Shut up about the war, about Iraq, if you vote Neo-Labour there's the door - don't come back. End of story give no glory, this sergeant-at-arms worse than a Tory. Case closed. Blair's gotta go. We want a Prime Minister with a back bone

Its the Iraq you don't hear about: falling unemployment, rising wages, interest rates down, foreign investment up

This, er, notion that the United States is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous. Having said that, all options are on the table

You're not special, got a few old mates, like to sit around having debates, talk about things like a national database and you want to keep all the people in their place, take our blood, our eyeballs, our face

Neo-Labour, clear and present danger, fundamental USA who you gonna kill today? (4 times)

I haven't got a kid but if I did have one, I wouldn't ever sleep, wouldn't get none. Taking liberties of another man's country, deciding all our fates while we worry what rubbish we watch on our TV, locked inside a box while we feel free, but if we all stand together then we could be free to decide who should be the Government we want to run the country

Is it better for Iraq that Saddam has gone?
Iraq is definitely not better off today than it was before the war
But is it better without Saddam?
All countries are better off without their dictators, but the price of getting rid of this dictator has been an ocean of blood, and it's sinking yet.
