THE SMITHS AND THE JONES (K. Twomey / A. Goodhart / I. Joseph) Flanagan & Allen Who’s building the ships, who’s buying the planes Who’s manning the tanks and the guns? It’s the Smiths and the Jones And the Kellys and Cohens They’re all democracy’s sons. Who fights in the north, who fights in the south, Who fights in the east and the west? It’s the Smiths and the Jones And the Kellys and Cohens They’re all democracy’s best Oh they won’t be back till they attack While there’s a job that must be done Who’s sweethearts will yearn until they return And who’ll be the happiest one? But the Smiths and the Jones And the Kellys and Cohens They’re all democracy’s sons. We the people are working night and day To set the whole world free And when I say “we”, it’s easy to see that I mean you and me Who’s building the planes? Who’s building the tanks? Who’s launching the ships by the ton? It’s the Smiths and the Jones And the Kellys and Cohens They’re all democracy’s sons. Their aim is the same so what’s in a name There’s just one desire to win And the Smiths and the Jones And the Kellys and Cohens They’ve just begun to begin Oh. They never stop till they’re on top Why there’s a job that must be done Who’s paying the tax? Who’s buying the bombs? Who’s filling the treasury funds It’s the Smiths and the Jones And the Kellys and Cohens They’re all democracy’s sons. (Orchestral interlude) Right is on their side, they’ll fight with pride And bring us victory And last but not least they’ll mop up in the east And then the united has won With the Smiths and the Jones And the Kellys and Cohens They’re all democracy’s sons. (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - October 2004)
