Pack
The rumor was spreading through town
They were coming in numbers to tear this place down
To the ground

There they come in their twos and their threes
With their guns in the front so you can’t fail to see

Can’t stay now you, got to carry all you can take
For they’re on, they’re on, they’re on the uptake
Don’t look to me you’ve got to carry your own weight
For they’re on, they’re on, they’re on their way

So we’re standing in line with our pots and our pans
And the sink if you can
And the children your one free hand

And many miles later
I’ve worn out my shoes
So the heals are all blistered and hardened and bruised
From the war
You’d better keep up

Can’t stay now you, got to carry all you can take
For they’re on, they’re on, they’re on the uptake
Don’t look to me you’ve got to carry your own weight
For they’re on, they’re on, they’re on their way

And I don’t mind the fighting
But all we’ve got are the rocks
But the sticks and the stones
But they don’t break the bones
When they hit

So quieten your voices
And stamp out your fires
We’ll be sleeping by day
And we’ll travel on that night
Keep up the good fight

Can’t stay now you, got to carry all you can take
For they’re on, they’re on, they’re on the uptake
Don’t look to me you’ve got to carry your own weight
For they’re on, they’re on, they’re on their way
Don’t look to me you’ve got to carry your own weight
For they’re on, they’re on, they’re on their way
