"1984" as written by and David Bowie....
Britain's in trouble country's bleeding dry
Handicapped and elderly are all gotta die
No one fights the system fightin' each other
Nobody's laughing, they're scared of big brothe

Chorus


What are we gonna get in 1984

Rich people like a sinking ship
They´ve got their money made
Third world countries sending us aid
People queue up to get their rations
it's not the birth but the death of a nation
Chorus

Who will be the hero into '85
when the crops are gone you'll barely stay alive
???? babies build a master race
???? look the future in the face



The "???" inidicates that i dont know what the lyrics are

    General CommentYes it has. The missing piece is:

    Will there be some heroes,into 85
    when the bomb is dropped,and how do you stay alive
    Orwell said it all, he looked the future in the face
    Giant test tube babies,build a brand new race

    so this version is only a misheard one by a nazi a**hole... master race... :s
