    Roses are red

    grass is green

    now get off your ass

    and join the marines
    When the Tigers Broke Free by Roger Waters

    It was just before dawn one miserable morning in black forty-four
    When the forward commander was told to sit tight when asked that his men be withdrawn
    And the generals gave thanks as the other ranks held be the enemy tanks for a while
    And then the Anzio bridgehead was held for the price of a few hundred ordinary lives

    And kind old King George sent mother a note when he heard that father was gone
    It was, I recall, in the form of a scroll... with golden leaf and all
    And I found it one day in a drawer of old photographs... hidden away
    And my eyes still grow damp to remember His Majesty signed with his own rubber stamp

    It was dark all around
    There was frost in the ground
    When the tigers broke free
    And no one survived from the Royal Fusiliers Company C
    They were all left behind
    Most of them dead
    The rest of them dying
    And that's how the High Command took my daddy... from me
