BROWN MAKES GENERAL POINT

The star publishes a set of lyrics about tomorrow’s General Election (May 5)…

Ian Brown has written his own political song in the run up to tomorrow’s GENERAL ELECTION (May 5).

The singer has published a set of lyrics to ’Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea’ which casts a cynical eye over this year’s race for Downing Street.

As reported by The Guardian, the lyrics are:

”Vote for me, vote for me / I’m the politician with the policies to set you free / Time for an election / So what’s your selection? / Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea”

Chorus:

”Soapbox speakin’, power speakin’ / Gonna light the nation in its darkest hour / Craving the keys to the rein of power”

”Love me, trust me, cast me your vote / X marks the spot / Let me be the first past the post”

”Don’t vote for me and ya can’t complain / Let me be a law-maker / In the game where a dreamer can become a shaker”

Chorus:

”Soapbox speakin’, power speakin’ / Gonna light the nation in its darkest hour / Craving the keys to the rein of power”

”Lookin’ for a vision? / Can’t make a decision? / Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea”

”Filled with derision? / Can’t make a decision? / Stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea”

”Re-count! Re-count! / Who spoilt the papers? / Say nobody vote for no one / No others, no Tory or Labour / Just got left with 30m spoilt ballot papers”

Chorus:

”Soapbox speakin’, power speakin’ / Gonna light the nation in its darkest hour / Craving the keys to the rein of power”

As previously reported by NME.COM, Ian Brown will be appearing as a headline act for The Eden Sessions 2005 in Cornwall.
