Heading
Cannonade

Give them an inch and they'll want another mile. We don't want just a slice of the cake - we want the whole bakery. Honestly! They're so selfish!

We sent a cannonade to demand that our percentage shall be paid
You command the gun but when the action starts you turn your tail and run
Fools we are we let you go
We stay our hands and leave it all up to you
So off you march with head held high
When you return then we can scarce believe our eyes

You're telling us that you put up a fight
And well OK I guess you won the patch alright
But the coat itself is nowhere in sight

So we plan guerilla raids because talking only means delays
We need an extra slice of bread
You tell us brothers we will see your children fed
Fools we are we let you go
We stay our hands and leave it all up to you
So off you march with head held high
When you return then we can scarce believe our eyes

You say you've earned that one little slice
They took the profit now it's us that must pay the price
Because the loaf itself is sacrificed

So when the cost of just a patch becomes the coat
And when the cost of just a slice becomes the loaf
We want more than just our jobs to do
We want the factories and we want the fields too
We want the very power of the state
And so we send a cannonade
