"Us And Them" lyrics - ROGER WATERS

"Us And Them"

Us and them
And after all
We're only ordinary men

Me and you
God only knows
It's not what we would choose to do

"Forward!" he cried from the rear
And the front rank died
The general sat and the lines on the map
Moved from side to side

Black and blue
And who knows which is which
And who is who?

Up and down
And in the end
It's only round and round, and round

"Haven't you heard it's a battle of words?"
The poster bearer cried
"Listen, son," said the man with the gun
"There's room for you inside"

Down and out
It can't be helped
But there's a lot of it about

With, without
And who'll deny
It's what the fighting's all about?

Out of the way! It's a busy day
I've got things on my mind
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died
