"Ladybird (Green Grass)" as written by Dave Bush, Stephen Hanley, Craig Scanlon, Mark E Smith and Simon Wolstencroft....
And there's a big concert going down in this town
People cannot see society had broken down
I sat upon the green grass but it just brought me down
And the wife said 'get up' and it just brought me round

Fly ladybird, get right outta town
Use your transparent wings
Ladybird fly, fly ladybird

Green grass was purple black and speckled all around
Round the ring, this Croat town
The gas was obnoxious
It made me settle down, so I sat down
And the guy said 'get up' and it just brought me down

Fly ladybird, ladybird flee
Get right outta town, use your transparent wings
Above the leaping flames, get right outta here
Flee ladybird, ladybird fly

Pomerania is burning down
Your family is gone, shot dead
Get right out of it
See the epaulette
Death, to let

Small change attached
I thought it was there but it just brought me down
Ripped the magazine open, it brought me round
Green grass was clear in the boundary zone
Grass faded into Wimpy brick in the ground

Mother's somewhere in Pomerania, but Pomerania is burning down
Ein kleine meisterwork, settled in my bones
Fly! Fly ladybird
Get right off the ground
Use your transparent wings
Get right outta here
