Bestbefore1984

Questa canzone è un elenco di tutti i più tipici ingredienti degli anni bui del thatcherismo, nella cui ombra crebbero anche i fascisti del British National Party.... "Argie", "spik", "dago", "wok", "gook", "paki bum", "thieving arab"... sono tutte espressioni spregiative in slang, spesso nate in ambiente militare, con cui nel Regno Unito i razzisti designano i non britannici – nell'ordine - gli argentini, gli ispanici, gli italiani o i latinoamericani, i negri, i filippini e gli asiatici in genere, i pachistani (letteralmente "pachistani rottinculo"), gli arabi (sempre ladroni)... Noi italiani siamo pure dei "dago gimp", cioè qualcosa tipo impotenti o depravati, e "greasy pimp", cioè papponi impomatati... ma ce n'è pure per il "prog arsehole" (buco di culo sinistrorso), per il "commie scum" (la feccia comunista), per il "pacifist poof "(il frocio pacifista), per il "senile cripple" (l'handicappato rincoglionito), ecc... "Gotcha" potrebbe tradursi come "Sei mio" o "Non mi sfuggi"...
Gotcha, you Argie bastard, gotcha, you fucking spik,
Gotcha, you latin bender, gotcha, you dago prick...
We gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, we gotcha, gotcha, gotcha,
We gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, we gotcha, gotcha, gotcha,
Our boys have got it right...

Right now, rule Brittania, right now, Britain rules the waves,
Right now, Britain never, never, never will be slaves

Gotcha, you Argie bastard, gotcha, you dago gimp,
Gotcha, you motherfucker, gotcha, you greasy pimp...
We gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, we gotcha, gotcha, gotcha,
We gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, we gotcha, gotcha, gotcha,
Our boys have got it right...

Right now, God save her majesty, right now, raise the Union Jack
Right now, God save Margaret Thatcher, she'll claim our empire back

Right now, right now, right now, right now, right now, right now
Right now, right now, right now, right now, right now, right now
Right now, right now, right now, right now, right now, right now,
Thatcher's got it right...

That is Thatcher's Britain built on national pride,
Built on national heritage and the bodies of those who died
To wave the flag on the Falklands, to protect us from the Irish hordes,
To support the rich in their difficult task of protecting themselves from the poor
Yes, this is Thatcher's Britain, so let's increase the strength of the police
Let's expand the military, let's all arm for peace
Let's suppress all opposition, let's keep the people down
Let's resurrect past histories for the glory of the crown

Right now, right now, right now, right now, right now, right now
Right now, right now, right now, right now, right now, right now
Right now, right now, right now, right now, right now, right now,
Thatcher's got it right...

Right now, God save Prince Charlie, right now, God bless his wife,
Right now, God bless their fortune, God bless their privileged...

We gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, we gotcha, gotcha, gotcha,
We gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, we gotcha, gotcha, gotcha,
Our boys have got it right
Gotcha, you Argie bastard, gotcha, you fucking (prog),
Gotcha, you (pleny) arsehole, gotcha, you bloody wog...

Right now, let's back Britain, right now, let's tighten up it's laws
Right now, Let's up and atom, let's rally to the cause...

We gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, we gotcha, gotcha, gotcha,
We gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, we gotcha, gotcha, gotcha,
Thatcher's got it right...

Gotcha, you Argie bastards, gotcha, you commie scum,
Gotcha, you bloody scoundrel, gotcha, you paki bum,
Gotcha, you thieving arab, gotcha, you slit-eyed gook,
Gotcha, you dirty browner, gotcha, you pacifist poof,
Gotcha, you senile cripple, gotcha, you dirty whore,
We'll get all benders and many more.
