"White Noise" as written by Jake Burns and Gordon Archer Ogilvie....
Rastus is a nigger, thug, mugger, junkie
Black gollywog, big horny monkey
Pimp, pusher, coon, grinning pick-a-ninny
Send him home soon, back to the trees

Black wogs, black wogs
Your face Don't fit
Black wogs, black wogs
You ain't no Brit

Ahmed is a Paki, curry-coffee queer
Ten to a bed, flocking over here
Tax-sponging canker, smelly thieving kids
Ponce greasy wanker, worse than the yids

Brown wogs, brown wogs
Your face don't fit
Brown wogs, brown wogs
You ain't no Brit

Stick together, we'll all be all white, me and you
The only colours that we need, red, right and blue

Paddy is a moron, spud-thick Mick
Breeds like a rabbit, thinks with his prick
Anything floors him if he can' fight or drink it
Round them up in Ulster, tow it out and sink it

Green wogs, green wogs
Our face don't fit
Green wogs, green wogs
We ain't no Brit

And if the victim ain't a soldier, why should we care?
Irish bodies don't count, life's cheaper over there

Green wogs, green wogs
Face don't fit
Green wogs, green wogs
We ain't no Brit

Green wogs, green wogs
Grab 'em, boys
Green wogs, green wogs
Turn up the white noise
Turn up the white noise
Turn up the white noise!

    General Commentthis song is the shit. and i can't believe no-one has even commented on it yet! Firstly its not a racist song and if you know anything about stiff little fingers you'll know its not. it basically is all about the general racism that emerged at the time of the National Front and launched the BNP and Thatcherism also. Note
    "If the victim ain't a soldier why should we care?
    Irish bodies don't count. Life's cheaper over there."
    But it also touches on general racism, rhetoric to reveal the general simplicity, idiocy and deep vile that these groups are founded on. thats why the language is plain and doesn't hold back to use the words all us stiff fans hate. the song is great. note how it touches on benefits with the
    "Spud thick Mick." who "Breeds like a rabbit." because he"Thinks with his prick."
    and
    "Ahmed is a Paki. Curry coffee queer.
    Ten to a bed. Flocking over here.
    Tax-sponging canker."
    it also mentions how the media amplifiedn a handful of muggers who happened to be born with black skin to be a part of black youth culture and all that crap and how they made out it was widespread...
    "Rastus was a nigger. Thug mugger junkie.
    Black golly gob. Big horny monkey.
    Pimp pusher coon."
    again the horny refers to contaminating white girls and spunging which is central and always has been an argument put forward by racist groups. load of ballix like. also a part i like is how the talk about immigration and deportation in this song and intentionally pronouce the word "right" as "white" in the lines....
    "Stick together we'll be all white me and you
    The only colours we need are red, right and blue."
    although like all stiff songs they touch on their experience on northern ireland. the song is a nutshell is all about the NO BLACKS, NO DOGS, NO IRISH theme within britain at the time.

    General CommentIt was a brave song to make in 1978/9...but he thinks with his "pick", as in navvies (navigators) and the stereotypical image of Irishmen as manual labourers. A far better line than 'prick', which could be applied to any race, the 'pick' line builds on the Irish theme. The Pogues song "Navigator" is all about 'em.
    Great song, great album, great band...
