When The Tigers Broke Free

Музыка: Роджер Уотерс

It was just before dawn
One miserable morning in black ’44
When the Forward Commander
Was told to sit tight
When he asked
That his men be withdrawn

And the generals gave thanks

As the other ranks
Held back the enemy tanks
For a while
And the Anzio Bridgehead
Was held for the price
Of a few hundred ordinary lives

And kind old King George
Sent Mother a note
When he heard that Father was gone
It was I recall
In the form of a scroll
With gold leaf and all

And I found it one day
In a drawer of old photographs
Hidden away
And my eyes still grow damp
To remember
His Majesty signed in his own rubber stamp

It was dark all around
There was frost in the ground
When the Tigers broke free
And no one survived
From the Royal Fusiliers Company "Z"

They were all left behind
Most of them dead
The rest of them dying
And that’s how the High Command
Took my daddy
From me
