White man went to Africa with rifles and bibles
Came back in the 80s cos he's spiteful
With a new recital
A vaxine - he spread it all around
Every hut in every village every school in every town
But they didn't get cured - they just got AIDS
I said they didn't get cured - they just got AIDS!
And soon it magically appeared in every place a poor person was -
So watch your smirking cuz, Aint you wondered who's been merking us?
Who put the crack in the ghetto?
Who put that crap in Netto?
Why charge that much for Lego?
Why can't we let go?
They give us Pepsi, cack or Coca Cola so we settle - GET ME!
So get the right bus, the right bus is priceless
Unite despite they vices and show this world who's the nicest
Yo we're the nicest - ask Dildo's Rollo -
If I was your Skygod I might smite Bono...

THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!
(And the bums and the nuns and the guns and the bombs on the trains)
THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!
(And the lies and wives of the guys who've been dying in spades)
THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!
(And the crap TV, and for me, and for brining on the plague)
THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!.......

So what you do is...
You get some shite white rock bands
With trite white wristbands
Outside are Mormons
A fright of Christians
The drool in the corners of their mouths is glistening
YOu can't hear shit for the whistling
Above all the people: and undead Beatle
A hair transplant and a junkie.
WORD!
Come friendly bombs and rain on Keane
And anyone that's ever been, like, featured in the NME
And that includes me!
See the world bank don't do shit for free
So read "debt dropped" read they see thee
And thee owe they
And they own thee
So they got all your water mate
Yo they decide your daughter's fate
You can't turn piss into wine
You can't rub pennies in a wound and expect it to be fine
There ARE no diamonds in the mines -
Cos we teefed the lot
So I'm a be on Top Of The Pops singing...

THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!
(And the bums and the nuns and the guns and the bombs on the trains)
THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!
(And the floods and the blood and the drugs and the banning all the raves)
THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!
(And the Asian flu, and for you, and for making us slaves)
THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!.......

Oh pray for me Methodist, cos I fear the rapture
C c comin' atcha
Like Cleopatra
Oh you could never capture
The Donovan's stature
I'm evil on the mike like Margret Thatcher
Ook!
Made you look, bombs like a nuke,
I'm truer than the gospel according to my mate Luke -
It says here
That the Skygod wants to kill you if you're queer
Or If you're a Jew or you're an Arab
A miner in a hole
Or if you are a dog because you haven't got a soul
Or if you are a dead baby
(HA HA!)
You should count your stems and see how lucky you are.
So if your kids are on Ritalin you are
Twelve times worse than the worst crack whore
I can say this cos I'm sure - You Aint Shit
We've been advised to quit, but we ain't taking the piss when we say

THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!
(And the bums and the nuns and the guns and the bombs on the trains)
THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!
(And the lies and guys with no lives who've been dying in spades)
THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!
(And the crap TV, and for me, and for making us slaves)
THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!.......

THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!
(And the bums and the nuns and the guns and the bombs on the trains)
THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!
(And the floods and the drugs and the bloods and the banning all the raves)
THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!
(And the avian flu, and for you, and for making us slaves)
THANKS FOR ALL THE AIDS!.......)

    General CommentGreat song!
    my interpretations
    the first verse is about the imperialism in africa "White man went to Africa with rifles and bibles" and then returning and giving africans AIDS virus, and americanizing products "They give us Pepsi, cack or Coca Cola so we settle"

    the chorus is all the things the white man brought to africa
    religion, weapons, terrorism, drugs, disease, making the africans into slaves, lies, the women of the dead miners and most stressed AIDS


    second verse refers to Live Aid "You get some shite white rock bands, With trite white wristbands"
    and how the chump change isnt helping "You can't rub pennies in a wound and expect it to be fine"
    im guessing the part about the diamonds is referring to blood diamonds

    third verse refers to Margret Thatcher the once prime minister of Britain during the 80's, and i believe how it shows the flaws in religion such as just because your gay, of a different religion, species, or an unbabtised baby{not sure about miner in a hole could be meaning a prostitute or again the blood diamond miners in africa not sure} your not going to heaven "That the Skygod wants to kill you if you're queer, Or If you're a Jew or you're an Arab, A miner in a hole, Or if you are a dog because you haven't got a soul, Or if you are a dead baby" parents who put their kids on Ridalin {a drug to calm, used mainly for people who have ADD or ADHD} are doing a horrible thing because they are not letting the children be themselves and calming the children to help themselves and that nobody has died from either disorder its just a personality trait, no matter who you are your not more important then ANY other human {whether from a different country, race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, or ocupation}"I can say this cos I'm sure - You Aint Shit"
