The hard-headed English general looks to his god above,
reviews the possibilities of making war not love.
So if you're who you think you are,
and the people in this song don't seem as real as fruitcake
well, you know I must have sung it wrong.

    General CommentA little live piece they played in the early to mid 70s (and maybe afterwards) after Locomotive Breath, Aqualung, or Wind-Up.

    Not really sure if the title is a reference to an actual general though.
