Bring The Boys Back Home (Wall album)

Bring The Boys Back Home 1:21
     (written by Roger Waters)

Bring the boys back home (2x)
Don't leave the children on their own, oh, no
Bring the boys back home

Schoolmaster: Wrong! Do it again! (echoed)
Stage Manager: Time to go! (echoed)
Operator: It's a man answering, but he keeps hanging up. (echoed)
Groupie: Are you feeling okay? (echoed)
Is there anybody out there?

Roger Waters: "[Vera] precedes, what is for me anyway, the central song on the whole album: Bring the Boys Back Home."
Interviewer: "Why?"
Roger: "Well, because it's partly about not letting people go off and be killed in wars, but it's also partly about not allowing rock and roll, or making cars or selling soap or getting involved in biological research or anything that anybody might do, not letting that become such an important and 'jolly boys game' that it becomes more important than friends, wives, children, other people."
