Psychiatrists and Lawyers destroying mankind
Drivin' 'em crazy...and stealing 'em blind
Bankers and Brokers ruling the world
Storing the silver and hoarding the gold

Ain't no use in preachers preaching
When they don't know what they're teaching
The weakest man be strong as Samson
When you're being held to ransom

Famine and hardship in true living colour
Constant reminders...the plight of our brother
Daily starvation our diet of news
Fed to the teeth with a barrage of views

Ain't no use in preachers preaching
When they don't know what they're teaching
The weakest man be strong as Samson
When you're being held to ransom

Black men and white men, and Arabs and Jews
Causing congestion and filling the queues
Fighting for freedom the truth and the word
Fighting the war for the end of the world

Ain't no use in preachers preaching
When they don't know what they're teaching
Weakest man be strong as Samson
When you're being held to ransom

And now,day before Xmas Eve,BillG!!! :meditate: Someone please open up a clinic for those with censer --- "I can't recognize supreme music if if it's feed into my head with a 2000 watts pair of headphones",syndrome! -You probably will get rich. Marry Xmas
what a weird song. I sort of like it. I have not heard it before
Sorry, but *I* really hate it! :puke:
The cover is magic, the album is astonishing, the song is terrific. I have the whole PH discography in vinyl and I still enjoy listening to it and not the cd editions which I also own. The album was my absolute school lp. Thanx for playing it
Superb song from a hugely talented band.
My favorit voice,and a picture of my best pet,gone for11 years now and that on my Fathers deathday,how do you do it Bill ?

Yeah, I heartily agree. How lovely to hear it right out of the blue. What a beautiful song.
I applauded RP for playing this but personally I don't like it.
