Vincent Burke: On Remembrance Day

The video with Vincent Burke's On Remembrance Day is a timeline for Britain's 100 years of endless war. Since 1914 and the 'war to end all wars', there has not been one year when Britain was not at war somewhere, always with the support of the Christian church.

Lyrics

On Remembrance Day
When the army prays
And the flags go up
To remind us that they do it for us
 
On Remembrance Day
By the flower display
Where the church explains
How the heroes keep the villians away
 
There I’ll tell it to the careless wind
I’ll tell you when the good guys win
 
On Remembrance Day
I should stay away
From the BBC
Where they tell you how a real man should be
 
And the children watch
As the vicar walks around with a cross
'Cause to love is fine
If you do it at a sensible time
 
Yeah, I’ll tell it to the careless wind
I’ll tell you when the good guys win
Yeah, I’ll save it for the next of kin
On Remembrance Day
On Remembrance Day
On Remembrance Day
