Us And Them

Us And Them 7:48
     (written by Waters, Wright)

...It came to a heavy blow, sorted the matter out.

Us and them
And after all we're only ordinary men
Me and you
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do

'Forward!' he cried from the rear
And the front rank died
The General sat, and the lines on the map
Moved from side to side

Black and blue
And who knows which is which and who is who
Up and down
And in the end, it's only round and round, and round

'Haven't you heard, it's a battle of words'
The poster-bearer cried
'Listen, son,' said the man with the gun,
'There's room for you inside'

I mean, they're gonna kill ya, so like, if you give 'em a quick short, sharp, shock, they don't do it again, dig it? I mean he got off light, 'cos I could've given 'im a real thrashing — I only 'it 'im once! It was only a difference of opinion, but really... I mean good manners don't cost nothing, do they? Eh?

Down and out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about
With, without
And who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about

Out of the way, it's a busy day
I've got things on my mind
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died

Spoken words: Roger the Hat

This was also a US single.

Speak to Me
On the Run
Time incl Breathe Reprise
Great Gig in the Sky, The
Us and Them
Any Colour You Like
Brain Damage
