G'day Davebhoy,

Interesting - reduced and folk processed by the Aldermaston lot - but not really what Sydney Carter wrote! (Bob Bolton, typing madly):

I WANT TO HAVE A LITTLE BOMB LIKE YOU

Charles de Gaulle, he said to me:
I want to have a little bomb like you,
Independent I will be,
I want to have a little bomb like you,
You can wave the Union Jack,
Stars and Stripes are on the back.
I want to have a little bomb like you do,
I want to have a little bomb like you.

Mao Tse Tung to Moscow said:
I want to have a little bomb like you,
My bomb will be twice as Red,
I want to have a little bomb like you.
I like you, and you like me,
But in case we don't agree,
I want to have a little bomb like you do,
I want to have a little bomb like you.

Everybody says the same:
I want to have a little bomb like you,
I am not the one to blame,
I want to have a little bomb like you.
Who will be the first to say
"I'll throw the bloody thing away"?
I don't want to be the first, do you? Well,
I don't want to be the first, do you?

Regards,

Bob Bolton
