LET’S SKIP THE NEWS

Old song from the band Genesis, still relevant today.

Dark and grey an English film the Wednesday Play … we always watch the Queen on Christmas Day, won’t you stay? … Though your eyes see shipwrecked sailors, you’re still dry … The outlooks fine though Wales might have some rain, saved again … Let’s skip the news boy, I’ll make some tea, the Arabs and the Jews boy too much for me … They get me confused boy puts me off to sleep, and the thing I hate O Lord, is staying up late to watch some debate on some nation’s fate, hypnotized by Batman, Tarzan, still surprised, you’ve won the West in time to be our guest name your prize, a drop of wine, a glass of beer dear what’s the time? … the grime on the tyne is mine all mine, five past nine, blood on the rooftops, Venice in the Spring, streets of San Francisco a word from from Peking, the trouble was started by a young Errol Flynn, better in my day O Lord, for when we got bored we’d have a World War, happy but poor, so let’s skip the news boy, I’ll go make some tea, blood on the rooftops too much for me, when old mother goose stops and their out for 23, then the rain at Lord’s stopped play, seems Helen of Troy has found a new face again … Written by Phil Collins and Steve Hackett... The album– “Wind and Wuthering”, by the great genius of Genesis …

Sound familiar? … Frankie The Earthman.

Blood on the Ukrainian rooftops is too much for me…
