The Housemartins were an English pop band that was active in the 1980s. Many of the Housemartins' lyrics were a mixture of Marxist politics and Christianity, reflecting Paul Heaton's beliefs at the time (the back cover of London 0 Hull 4 contained the message, "Take Jesus - Take Marx - Take Hope").

Bow Down

Mother, father, I think that I would rather
Stay at home with you for another year
That buildings so tall and it makes me feel so small
That I might get lost and simply disappear
Evil smiles wont change my mind
I'm worried and I'm not the worrying kind
Whys that man rubbing his hands
Looking at me writing down his plans?

Today I have been moulding plasticine
And I made a little man who looked just like me
His limbs were so weak and he couldn't move his mouth to speak
And I could bend him into any shape I wanted him to be

Evil smiles wont change my mind
I'm worried and I'm not the worrying kind
Whys that man rubbing his hands
Looking at me writing down his plans?

Those kids with the blazers on
They went in with names on their elbows
Came home with medals on
Spit it out that's the way the story goes

A flying start for the briefcase crew

Oh, you didn't have to teach me like you did
But you did
And you didn't have to beat me like you did
But you did
But you did
You did
You did

Α, επιτέλους, ένα πολύ γνωστό κομμάτι (20ετίας και) που ποτέ δεν ήξερα ποιοι το τραγουδούσαν. Βελτιώσαμε τις γνώσεις μας thanks to you, Natassa!
