Lyrics
:

Guys wearing gas masks are levelling their guns 
At school children singing whilst studying sums 
It�s a clear sign of violence 
And it's laced with heavy support 
This whole situations been dragged through the dirt 
By gargoyles and monsters and man eating birds 
Who act like the jury but you never see them stand up in court 

It's savage and ugly the riots unfurl
But these are the ways of this wonderful world
These are the ways of this wonderful world

Well back at the banquet a madam meets her fate 
Whilst almost a mile from her country estate 
The helpless and homeless are dancing a ring in the rain 
Prompted by pressure from home and abroad 
Fifty five of them ministers will try to reach accord 
On some ill judged remarks concerning madam baby Lorraine

It's savage and ugly the riots unfurl
But these are the ways of this wonderful world
These are the ways of this wonderful world

Consignments of bibles and passenger planes
Japanese funerals and gambling games
And backers and bidders are dealing in textiles and lace
They order revues that will salvage the state
Guaranteed to put off and pass up that decay
While the latest concerns are reports of a slackening pace

Well it's savage and ugly the riots unfurl
But these are the ways of this wonderful world
These are the ways of this wonderful world

(Well rock it son)

Well it's savage and ugly the riots unfurl
But these are the ways of this wonderful world
These are the ways of this wonderful world

Yes these are the ways of this wonderful world
So don't be a panicking haven't you heard
That these are the ways of this wonderful world
This wonderful world
(One more time)

Violence
Agression


Homeless

Helpless

Notes
:Produced by The Alarm
Engineered by Mark Phythian & Rob Storm
Recorded & Mixed at Amazon Studios, Liverpool
Mike Peters Notes
:A light-hearted look at a very confused world played in a near skiffle style which we learnt from doing all those Woody Guthrie covers of “This train is bound for glory”, etc. A fine way to end the record.
(Shelter official fanzine, 1991)
