Broadsides, Ballads and Battle Cries

 

Lyrics

Come all you good free folk and open your eyes

To these broadsides, ballads and battle cries

Swimming in similes snd synonyms

I’m a bold pioneer of political hymns


The poor man’s advocate, that’s what I am

A voice above others who don’t give a damn

I’ve been given this chance, so I’ll do what I can

For the triumph of freedom for my fellow man


My Broadsides, ballads and battle cries

Bring a call to the meek and words to the wise

Bring joy and reflection or tears to the eyes

My broadsides, ballads and battle cries


My songs are political, border on the satirical

Always topical, sometimes apocalyptical

Through acts philanthropical and thoughts philosophical

With inspiration which is typically biblical


My Broadsides, ballads and battle cries

Bring a call to the meek and words to the wise

Bring joy and reflection or tears to the eyes

My broadsides, ballads and battle cries


So prepare for a blast from my broadsides

My ballads strike emotions from all sides

On the crest of a wave every song rides

Covering all angles and much more besides


I’ll rage against tyranny, champion right over wrong

Through Glassite hymn or Spencean song

It’s my calling, my passion, it’s where I belong

And I’ll keep going strong if you’ll all sing along


To these broadsides, ballads and battle cries

A call to the meek and words to the wise

Joy and reflection or tears to the eyes

These broadsides, ballads and battle cries


My Broadsides, ballads and battle cries

Bring a call to the meek and words to the wise

Bring joy and reflection or tears to the eyes

My broadsides, ballads and battle cries

My broadsides, ballads and battle cries

My broadsides, ballads and battle cries
