Wilson Health said to the immgrants
You better get back to the commonwealth homes
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Said to the folks color of his skin
He said don't care
So he said you better get up
He said, he said to Enoch Powell
You better go home
So Wilson said to
We got to swing
We have to go the hill
So Wilson Health said to Enoch Powell
We got to the commonwealth
Commonwealth, yeah, commonwealth, yeah

If you don't want trouble
You got to go home to Indiana

Well I check Austria, England, India

    General Commentthey were just muckin' around, making up words on the spot. Probably a little drunk. They also sing about going to Pakistan to play a cricket match. It's all mumbo jumbo and never commercially released or even properly recorded. They were just jamming and probably bored, tired and stoned.

    General CommentHahaha, the version of this song I have is hilarious. Every time John says his goofy "yeah!" in the background Paul is on the verge of laughter. A fun unreleased demo.
