Dire Straits', "The Man's too strong"
Better Lyrics:
I am a gourmet shoplifter
And in the stores I used to play
And I've stripped the shelves
Of many a delicatessen
Now they say I am a store criminal
Gonna put me away
Your Honour, please hear my confession:
I've nicked the ingredients
To many a feast
Didn't need no money
Just took what I pleased
I'll go down in history
As the greatest of store crooks
I know why Fortnums
Couldn't balance their books
But I'll always remember
That day I went wrong
A Ham's too big
'n' smells too strong
Original Lyrics:
I'm just an ageing drummer boy
And in the wars I used to play
And I've called the tune
To many a torture session
Now they say I am a war criminal
And I'm fading away
Father please hear my confession
I have legalised robbery
Called it a belief
I have run with the money
And hid like a theif
I have re-written history
With my armies and my crooks
Invented memories
I did burn all the books
And I can still hear his laughter
And I can still hear his song
The man's too big
The man's too strong
