Thread Name: ADD: Kilroy Was Here (Ewan MacColl)
Subject: RE: Kilroy Was Here-Ewan MacColl
What a powerful song! MacColl appropriates the image of the anonymous WWII soldier - the one who is everywhere, does the dirty work, the fighting and the dying. He applies this image to all the other crap jobs carried out by the working classes throughout history.

Herga Kitty - thanks a million for the lyrics, and guest Boab, sorry for your recent loss.
