You're walking down the street in the middle of the day
The sun is shinning brightly everthink is quite ok
But then you heard this song, it makes you stop and yell out "HEY!"
You might think that it is...

BUT THIS IS NOT A CRASS SONG!

You might think that it is but I'm telling you it ain't
Although I will admit it sounds like something they might write
It's a happy little ditty makes you stomp and move your feet
You might think that this is...

BUT THIS IS NOT A CRASS SONG!

Masterpieces don't usually get written in a minute
But this one took just seconds or even less to pen it
But don't be too amazd 'cause its just got one verse and chantin'
You might think that this is...

(read this line in your best cockney accent)
Ahh...right...it's not a crass song is it?

The guitar rift is real savage and it ain't all that on time
The vocals are so Cockney that they may just blow your mind
And it's got made up words like "icklee", "zicklee", "vin", and "plime"

NO! NO! THIS IS NOT A CRASS SONG!

We like to play it in the morning like to play it in the night
Do yourself a favor matey, sing it instead of starting fights
After only just one verse I'm telling you you'll feel all right
You might think that it is...

BUT THIS IS NOT A CRASS SONG!

Play it when you're walking, walking down the street
Play it when you're riding on your bike or your feet
Doesn't really matter 'cause it's really really neat
You might think that it is...

Ahhh...

Sing it to your mommy, sing it to your dad
Sing it to your new girl friend or the one that you just had

    General Commentyeah, that's how the song went on my CD. I think this song is really funny, and it is a nice break from the redundancy (no offense) ofAnti-Flag's political songs, which are grea, but, you know, variety is good. Anyway, this song is really funny, and it is a great way to end the CD A New Kind Of Army.

    General Commenti like how it fades out in the middle. i also love the end "Hello i'm from england, right...umm. I LOVE THE TELLETUBBIES! TELLETUBBIES IS MY FAVORITE SHOOOWWW...is anybody there? right." probably mocking how the cockney's always say "right" at the end of there sentence.

    General Commentthis song is FUCKED UP!! i like anti-flag but next to the Crass they aren't shit. They wish they were the Crass. They try to be just like them but the Crass is the best political band ever!!! as much as i hate it i do think it was clever. when it gets real low in the middle and then gets higher, I think they are making fun of the song "Fight war,not Wars". Haha
