"1..2..3..4.. every effin thing is effin shite... goodnight...!!!"

I used to be an agit pop punkrocker.. we prefered minimalist nihilist ranting protest songs... 😡


I prefer something that rhymes throughout, even if it is 'Punk'
Instead of 1,2,3,4, how about "Red, yellow, black, white . . ."
It keeps the internal rhyme, and could be taken as either a count-in, or relating to the races of man (In terms which were still in use when punk rock started)

I suppose, to be more PC it could be:
Amerind, Asian,
African, Caucasian,
every effin thing is effin shite
... goodnight...!!!"
That gives us an extra line, and, by chance, an extra rhyme.

Cheers
Nigel
