Nine Plan Failed Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

After nine years in the army
They took away his brain
They tattooed 'Defect' on his brow
And signed him up again

He killed ten thousand Germans
A hundred Japanese
A family of Hindus
And a lot of Portuguese, nine plan failed

I could never see the point
Of showing them you're boss
When they drag you through the city streets
And nail you to a cross

They took him to the office
They strapped him to the bed
They fastened lots of pretty wires
Securely to his head

They wheeled him down the corridor
Upon a metal trolley
Now he wears big spectacles
And he sings like Buddy Holly, nine plan failed

I could never see the point
Of showing them you're boss
When they drag you through the city streets
And nail you to a cross

The world declared its armistice
And took away his guns
And now he satisfies himself
On piss-week, tea and buns
On piss-week, tea and buns
Oh oh, at the disco

Rome is very pretty and Rome is very grand
But the Pope lost his four fingers
When they gave this boy his hand to kiss
When they gave this boy his hand to kiss
It wasn't funny, no

He wasn't very good at school
His highest grade was C
But he believed the managers
When they said,"You leave it all to me"

They gave him suits from Seville Row
The quality so fine
So now he sits in the desert wastes
Just waiting for a sign, nine plan failed
