"Save the world, Get the girl" as written by Jonathan Fox and Dewan Dean Soomary....
From the firey pits of camden town
To elephant and castle underground
There ain't no teachers in the school
they're all out hustlin' playin' pool
The neighbours complain about the noise
There's girls in labour with tory boys
I say my prayers and go to bed
and wake up with a horses head

But if we lean on you, we are gonna fall
When it's all for one, and one for fuck all


I will save the world, I will get the girl
I'll dismantle a ticking time bomb with just one second to spare
I will save the world, I will get the girl
And you will all point up at the sky as I fly right through the air


Mother earth is begging you to quit
So you reach the moon and stick a flag in it
Well I believe in the people of america, but I still can't believe the terminator's the governor
As the soldiers prepare for combat, smile and ask do you want freedom fries with that?
We put the 'oops' back in troops now it seems to absurd
But going to war, to prevent war, was the most stupid thing I ever heard.


I will save the world, I will get the girl
I'll dismantle a ticking time bomb with just one second to spare
I will save the world, I will get the girl
And you will all point up at the sky as I fly right through the air


I'm a 20 something OAP
I'm screaming at my TV
Playing knockdown ginger, kiss me quick
Karate chop and kung-fu kick
I try to live a life that's full
To keep my damage minimal
But only the balief visits me
And he never stays for a cup of tea

But if we lean on you, we are gonna fall
When it's all for one, and one for fuck all


I will save the world, I will get the girl
I'll dismantle a ticking time bomb with just one second to spare
I will save the world, I will get the girl
And you will all point up at the sky as I fly right through the air

    General CommentHeard this song before going to school.
    And i was singing it in my head all day long.
    It's great.
    I think it's quite self-explanatory to be honest.

    General CommentThis song has no sole message I think.
    Like most KB songs it's very general, it depicts the cliche that 'good will triumph over evil.'
    I think what KB's intention is that not to lecture audience with overly political rants like most punk bands, but get them conscious enough so they can research their own politics through such catchy music.
