Songtekst:

You wake up in the morning, get something for the pot
Wonder why the sun makes the rocks feel hot
Draw on the walls, eat, get laid
Back in the good old days

Then some damn fool invents the wheel
Listen to the whitewalls squeal
You spend all day looking for a parking spot
Nothing for the heart, nothing for the pot

Benny turned the dial on his Short Wave radio
Oh how he wanted to talk to the people
He wanted his own show
Tune in Moscow, tune in New York
Listen to the Welsh kid talk
Communicating like in the good old days

Forgive me father for I have sinned
It was either me or him
And a voice said Benny
You fucked the whole thing up
Benny your time is up
Your time is up

Benny turned the dial on his Short Wave radio
He wanted to talk to the people
He wanted his own show
Tune in Moscow, tune in New York
Listen to the Welsh kid talk
Communicating like in the good old days

Forgive me father
Welsh policeman: Mobile One Two to Central
For I have sinned
Welsh policeman: We have a multible on the A465
between Cymbran and Cylgoch
Father it was either me or him
Father can we turn back the clock?
Welsh Policeman: Ambulance, over.
I never meant to drop the concrete block
Welsh Policeman: Roger central, over and out.

Benny turned the dial on his Short Wave radio
He wanted to talk to the people
He wanted his own show
Tune in Moscow, tune in New York
Listen to the Welsh kid talk
Just like in the good old days
The good old days

Radio announcer: Do you really think Iranian terrorists
would have taken American hostage if Ronald Reagen
were president?
Do you really think the Russians would have invaded
Afghanistan if Ronald Reagan were president?
Do you really think third-rate military dictators would
laugh at America and burn our flag in contempt if
Ronald Reagan were president?
Concerned Citizen: Well it might work!
Hostage: We as a group do most importantly want to
beseech president Reagan and our fellow Americans to
refrain from any form of military or violent means as
an attempt, no matter how noble or heroic, to secure
our freedom.
Concerned Citizen: Sure! Only it’s going to be mighty
dangerous for you, Cassidy

Hoppys faithful sidekick: guess you don’t know
Hopalong Cassidy, Mister. Adventure’s his bread,
excitement’s his butter and danger, why to him that’s
like strawberry jam to top it off.
