Heard the jackboots in the hall
No chance they’re here for me at all
Those goddamn queers they took away
Their fault for choosing to be gay
Turned and went back to sleep

Jackboots came again this morning
Striding softly without warning
Kicked down the door
Of that half-dressed whore
Smiled and drifted back to sleep

Hello old jackboots I hear
Shaking the floor as you draw near
Those muslims you can take
From noisy prayers give me a break
Yawned and turned back to sleep

Jackboots jackboots came again
This time for my dear old friend
Warned him not to go protest
Got himself into this mess
Took me some time to get back to sleep

Today cannot believe my ears
Tromp of jackboots drawing near
Echoing in the corridor
Till they stop at my front door
Please tell me I’m still asleep

Here in Asia
This time of year
Some folk burn effigies
Spout hatred
Pray for death
Call for war
Some folk light candles
Profess their love
Pray for life
Call for peace
Whatever happened in the past
Right and wrong are dead and gone
On Remembrance Day
It is easy to forget that

20 squats
With you in my arms
20 kicks
With you in my arms
100 laps around the house
With you in my arms
Wash the dishes
With you in my arms
100 kicks
From you in my arms
This is how I Fathersize
Make myself strong enough
To carry you
