GUEST Lyr Req: Rough Justice (D. Boulton & J. Parton) (4) Lyr Add: ROUGH JUSTICE (D. Boulton & J. Parton) 08 May 19


Hi Starship, thanks for getting back to me.
These are the lyrics I have so far, just first verse and chorus (all I could remember, even these are suspect as memory not what it used to be these days). If you know any more verses or the chords that would be fantastic.

Rough Justice:

Well the young‘uns today are all vandals
And the buggers are muggers as well
When they’re not out ram-raiding they’re all out parading
The stuff they nicked in the last haul
Well hard discipline never did me any harm
And conscription would do them all good
And if I had my way I’d go back to the day
When a criminal knew where he stood, I’d

Chorus:
Flog ‘em and flay ‘em and hang ‘em
I’d bring back the birch and the cat
I’d give ‘em what for the strong arm of the law
The thumbscrews the stocks and all that
But we could give ‘em jobs and a future
And a chance for a place in the sun
We could give ‘em fair shares in a country that cares
But it wouldn’t be half as much fun
