Bring on the days of wine and roses
Riot squads and fire hoses
Bring on the days of wine and roses
Riot squads and fire hoses

Two leaders try to speak but they don't make a sound, no
Autocrats run but they don't move around, no
Big money mergers but does that move ya
X-Ray vision I see right through ya

Do you remember when it was all bleak and black
When the old man move forwards and he never look back
But no one has a job, no, it's crime and torture
Cocaine epidemic and the steel vultures

Stuck inside a fire that is a-cleanin'
Super power contenders, no one is daring
One super power left psychotic killer
World wide assault, yeah, it's a thriller

You don't wanna be the one who's got to go to jail
If you're lucky I.M.F. will hook you up and you'll make bail

Bring on the days of wine and roses
Riot squads and fire hoses
Bring on the days of wine and roses
Riot squads and fire hoses

Bring on the days of wine and roses
Riot squads and fire hoses
Bring on the days of wine and roses
Riot squads and fire hoses

The menace of success oppress rebellion
The men who play chess with the human weapons
The rally of ideas is the question
The city awaits total annihilation

Living under the muzzle of a gun
This is no holiday in the sun
It's disturbing, it's subversion
"V" is not for victory but for the vacant homes

Bring on the days of wine and roses
Riot squads and fire hoses
Bring on the days of wine and roses
Riot squads and fire hoses

Nanana nananana
Nananana nanana
Nanana nananana
Nananana nanana
Oh yeah!
