"Cantonese Boy" as written by and David Sylvian....
We're pushing through these farming towns
We've worked hard ploughing over grounds

Red army calls you
The call of the crowd
Red army needs you
It calls you now

Cantonese boy
Bang your tin drum
Cantonese boy
Civilian soldier
Cantonese boy
Bang your tin drum
Cantonese boy
Red army calls you home

We're singing
Marching through the fields
We're changing
The lives we've led for years

Red army calls you
Red army needs you

Gentlemen you heard this call
Raised your glass and called for more
Only young men broke the wall
