The Wedding Present -
"All About Eve"

[ from the album "George Best" (1987) ]

Lyrics

"Tom"
I've read this page a thousand times
It's the only way that I could find
To carry on

"Say.
Isn't it a good life over here?
And can you catch another can of beer?
So sharp, so clear

You bet!
And a good kaffir I've never met
But you know this heat will make them sweat!"
Tin wall, hot flesh

Oh man
I'm too full of hate to shake your hand
And don't you ever call me your friend
Hell take this land

Did you try to imagine the hate that a young boy could feel?
Did you try to imagine the hate that a young boy could feel?

Big game;
Four begging children by the train
The Afrikaner does the same
Then gets back on again

And who's she?
"They call her Black Revolution Eve"
On the master's land she sowed some seeds
Today she leaves

Did you try to imagine the hate that a young boy could feel?
Did you try to imagine the hate that a young boy could feel?
Did you try to imagine the hate that a young boy could feel?
Did you try to imagine the hate that a young boy could feel?
