[G]Take all your overgrown [C]infants away, [G/B]some[Am]where,

[D]The [Em]Fletcher Memorial [C]Home for incurable [D]tyrants[Em7] [D/F#]and [G]kings.[C]
And [G]they can appear to them[C]selves every day,[G/B] [Am]
On closed circuit [D]T.V. to make [Bb+]sure they're still [Bm]real.[A/B] [Bm]
[C]It's the only connec[D]tion they [Em]feel.
"Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome [Cmaj7]Reagan and Haig,
Mr. Begin and friend, Mrs. [D]Thatcher and Paisley,
Mr. [Cmaj7]Brezhnev and party, the ghost of McCarthy,
The memories of Nixon. And [D]now adding colour,
A [G]group of anonymous [D/F#]Latin-American meat [C]packing glitterati."
[Em]Did they expect us to treat them with any res[D]pect?
They can [G]polish their [D/F#]medals and [C]sharpen their smiles,
And a[G]muse themse[D/F#]lves playing [C]games for a while.
[G]Boom boom[D/F#], bang bang, [C]lie down you're [Em]dea[add9]d.

[A/C#]In [D]the [Em]Fletcher Memorial [C]Home for colonial [D]wasters of [Em7]life [D/F#]and [G]limb.

Now the [D/F#]final so[C]lution can be ap[Em]pli[add9]ed.
