The Lyrics

This is derived from several news articles detailing the alleged "assault" of a security guard by Nicko Mcbrain at a VIP entrance to a gig during the "Give Me 'Ed 'Till I'm Dead tour in the states.
He sees my pass but won't let me through
He stands in front I run over his shoe
He just steps back he is such a man
If he don't move he'll be hit again

My engine revves the charge begins
But in this parking lot no one wins
He wouldn't budge at all from where he stood
So I sent him sprawling 'cross my hood

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh.....
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh.....

The man he sweats with fear he calls the cops
The band is really gonna bust my chops
What will I write in my next diary
Or shan't I worry cause they'll just fire me

The cops show up and words are exchanged
A reporter says "hey it's Mad McBrain"
I got so near yet so far away
Guess I'll have to play another day

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh....
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh....
(Insert ripping guitar solos here)

So now I'm charged with third degree assault
Is this madness ever gonna halt
Look you bloody twits I'm with the band
The sargeant says "talk to the hand"

And as I sit there staring at this git
He let's me go on an "appearance ticket"
And before I head back to the show
Without a tear I draw my parting groan

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh....
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh....

Up The Irons!
