From the Mekons song Sympathy For The Mekons, on the 1987 album Honky Tonkin’
Here's to a band that deals in the facts of life
In their 10 short ugly years
I wish the Mekons good fortune
I sold them fame and riches
And good health
I like my friends
I feel unfit for them
It makes me sad they'll all be gone
I hold the sword, I hold the hammer
In the winter of the world
History has a stutter
It says w..w..w..watch out!
