Taking guns to Afghanistan

“Guns for the Afghan Rebels” è il titolo della canzone il cui testo è riportato sotto. Tratta  dall’album “2.000.000 Voices” del gruppo punk (o post-punk) inglese Angelic Upstarts, uscito nel 1981, in piena guerra fredda, quando l’opinione pubblica occidentale fu indotta a valutare l’occupazione dell’Afghanistan da parte dei sovietici come una vera e propria invasione alla pari di quelle del 1956 e 1968 in Ungheria e Cecoslovacchia. Chissà cosa ne pensano adesso i sessantenni di oggi e ventenni di allora !

Guns for the Afghan Rebels,
And the rest the rest they’ve go to label
The hammer and sickle seems so fickle
When the tanks are rolling in

They fight with muskets
But never surrender
The tanks are rolling in.

Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan

As the gold goes cold the rich are told
Theres rebel men and rebels boys
Rebels with a cause

Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan

Guns for the Afghan Rebels,
Or the countries will start to tremble,
Not the first not the last,
As Afghan is trying to .?

Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
