"Get Your Filthy Hands Off My Desert" as written by and Roger Waters....
"Oi, get your filthy hands off my desert!"
"What 'e say?"

Brezhnev took Afghanistan.
Begin took Beirut.
Galtieri took the Union Jack.
And Maggie, over lunch one day,
Took a cruiser with all hands.
Apparently, to make him give it back

    General CommentFor some reason I have an image of Pink Floyd in the desert, with a violin, and the explosion is the sound of a piano falling infront of them.

    The piano explodes in a cascade of splinters, while the band plays on. Yeah, I don't know what this means either.
