GeoffLawes Songs in English about the Spanish Civil War (217* d) RE: Songs in English about the Spanish Civil War 25 Oct 17


Here is al ink to The Young'ns singing Bob Cooney's Miracle on Radio Leeds

I do't know any details about the song but will try to find out about it.

Well you've all heard how ten thousand blokes

Were fed by Christ with the fish and loaves

Well, on the banks of the Ebro in '38

A miracle happened on my plate!

We'd damn no scran for two whole days

57 lads, all hot and hazed

When come the commissar with the grub, what grief!

A loaf of bread and a tin of beef

Well all us lads were filled with strife

'Till up comes Cooney with his tiny knife

And before the lamb could wolf the sun

Every man had a corned-beef bun!

Now, Jesus may have got more done

But He had five loaves, not just one

And Jesus' men weren't clemmed like we;

They'd not fought fascists in a hot country

So we break and share with all us men

We can share the earth and start again

Sharpen your knives, Bob Cooney said

Bring out your beef and bring out your bread

We can share the earth!

We can start again!

Amen, amen, amen, amen
