"International" as written by and Andrew Mc Clusky....
The youth and the Imperialist Tribune was also addressed by a young girl
From Nicaragua whose hands had been cut off at the wrists by the former
Samosa guards.
Veronica Merco, of the German Federal Republic, had this to say:

Like a fall in a war, like a mother's open arms.
Like a pawn in a game, hard to take.

All the time we are gone, there's no reason, there's no way.
Oh, the soul is the one so they say.
There we sit on a line, wasting fortunes at a time, and play.

She never thought he'd be this way.
Her arms aloft, she holds.
But now it's all a memory.
And it's gone...

    Republic, had this to say:

    "Also, ich habe eine Ausbildung gemacht als Industriekaufmann

    Und so wie mir geht..."
