"I Feel Like a Wog" as written by Hugh Alan Cornwell, David Greenfield, Brian John Duffy and Jean Jacques Burnel....
I feel like a wog people giving me the eyes
But I was born here just like you
I feel like a wog
Got all the dirt shitty jobs
But everybody's got to have something to do with their time

I feel like a wog
I don't wanna go home
I've got a lot of life to run through
I feel like a wog
I don't mean you no harm
Just don't ask me to shine your shoes

Golly gee: Golly gosh
Don't call me your Golly Wog
Golly gee: Golly gosh
Don't call me your Golly Wog

Let me tell you about Pimpo
We met him down at the After Eight
He wanted to sell us some limbo
But we said mister
You've just got to wait
You've got to wait [Repeat x3]

He wanted to take us down to Sao Paulo
But we said mister
We ain't got no bread
I tried to make him laugh
But he didn't get the joke
And then he said I wasn't right in the head
And then he made me [Repeat x3]
And then he made me feel
And then he made me feel like [Repeat x3]
You know I feel like [Repeat x3]
You know I feel like a wog

    General CommentIt should be obvious that, here, "wog" is used in the same sense as the offending word in "Woman Is The Nigger Of The World". Both implicitly attacking racism, and saying "I too am an abused underdog" - which is certainly how the Stranglers felt at the time.
    Incidentally, anyone who thought the Stranglers were racist is forgetting something - Dagenham Dave was mixed-race and looked black from a distance.
