    Shipbuilding (Costello, Langer)

    Is it worth it?
    A new winter coat and shoes for the wife
    And a bycicle on the boy’s birthday
    It’s just a rumour that was spread around town
    By the women and children
    Soon we’ll be shipbuilding
    Well I ask you
    The boy said Dad they’re going to take me to task
    But I’ll back by Christmas
    It’s just a rumour that was spread around town
    Somebody said that someone got filled in
    For saying that people that killed in
    The result of the shipbuilding
    With all the will in the world
    Diving for dear life
    When we could be diving for pearls
    It’s just a rumour that was spread around town
    A telegram or a picture postcard
    Within weeks they’ll be re-opening the shipyard
    And notifying the next of kin once again
    It’s all we’re skilled in
    We will be shipbuilding
    With all the will in the world
    Diving for dear life
    When we could be diving for pearls

    After the ship was struck… etc…

    Jaja, leuke verhalen voor de kinderen.

    De paniek van de inslag, de doden, de gewonden, het zinken en het overleven doen je echt niet even een liedje zingen. Er zijn genoeg verslagen van dit soort gebeurtenissen die duidelijk maken hoe het echt gaat.

    Propagandistisch Gelul van de Britten waar ze altijd zo sterk in zijn.
