"Blue Skinned Beast" as written by and Graham/barson Mcpherson....
I can fly you to your loved ones but I can promise no return
To a shell-shocked God forsaken where their craters still they burn
Have a drink on me
Have a drink on me

Still the worst is over that I hope you understand
The you're one more hurdle over our protector of the land
Have a drink on me
I put it down to the company

Three cheers to the blue skinned beast hip hip
To the blue skinned beast hip hip
Three cheers to the blue skinned beast hip hip hip hip
To the blue skinned beast hip hip

Here you have this medal you can even melt it down
Or frame it in the living room every time you turn around
Have a drink on me
Have a drink on me

I heard you shout for yesterday, but I was sleeping on the job
And I dreamt of fighters miles away whose lives I had to rob
Have a drink on me
I put it down to the company

Three cheers to the blue skinned beast hip hip
To the blue skinned beast hip hip
Three cheers to the blue skinned beast hip hip hip hip
To the blue skinned beast hip hip

Here you have this medal you can even melt it down
Or frame it in the living room every time you turn around

I can fly your loved ones to you
With guarantee of no return
And if John Wayne's dummy's bounce off
Don't look shocked when it comes your turn
Have a drink on me
I put it down to company

Three cheers to the blue skinned beast hip hip
To the blue skinned beast hip hip
Three cheers to the blue skinned beast hip hip hip hip
To the blue skinned beast hip hip

Hip hip
Hip hip
Hip hip hip hip
Hip hip

Three cheers to the blue skinned beast hip hip
To the blue skinned beast hip hip
Hip hip hip hip
Hip hip

Three cheers to the blue skinned beast hip hip
To the blue skinned beast hip hip
Three cheers to the blue skinned beast hip hip hip hip
To the blue skinned beast hip hip

    My InterpretationAn anti-war statement regarding Thatcher's handling of the Falklands -

    "I heard you shout for yesterday
    But I was sleeping on the job
    And I dreamt of fighters miles away
    Whose lives I had to rob"

    It also has references to prehaps the lack-of credit the soilders recieved -

    "Here you have this medal
    You can even melt it down
    Or frame it in the living room
    Everytime you turn around"

    The Blue Skinned Beast is also a reference to Thatcher, with her party The Conservative's colour being blue.

    :)Great song!
