"From Red To Blue" as written by and Billy Bragg....
Another day dawn's grey
It's enough to make me spit
But we go on our way
Just putting up with it
And when I try to make my
Feelings known to you
You sound like you have changed from red to blue

You're a father now
You seen things in different ways
For every parent will
Gain perspective on their wilder days
But that alone does not explain
The change I see in you
The way you've drifted off from red to blue

Sometimes I think to myself
Should I vote red for my class
Or green for our children
But whatever choice I make I will not forsake

So you bought it all
The best your money could buy
And I watched you sell your soul
For the bright shining light

Where are the principles
Of the friend I thought I knew
I guess you let them fade from red to blue
I hate the compromises
That life forces us to make
We all must all bend a little
If we are not to break
But the ideas you've opted out of
I still hold them to be true
I guess they weren't so firmly held by you

    General CommentSurely it can only be an "open letter" to British Prime Minister Tony Blair. He was elected as a Socialist, but has largely abandoned traditional left-wing values and policies, to the dismay of many grass-roots socialists, including our Mr Bragg.

    General CommentPolitics, you know. Blue is the British Conservative Party, or the Tories, and Blue is that of the workers, Labour... or, now, New Labour.
