First track on new Boogiesnakes album Tour Of France, to be released in October 2014.


World War II, fight for you, genie's out the bottle
Legal drugs, billy clubs, electricity
Steamy dance, cruisy trance, mob don makes a fortune
Betty comes, weekly bungs, blackmail and extortion

There's a full moon over Stonewall tonight
Hawkers watch the twilight tonight
Fight for liberation tonight
You could hear the pin drop

White lights shine, umteenth time, Lillian raids the disco
Get in line, draft card primed, strip-searched in the closet
Final straw, this is war, barricade the village
Chorus line, beat in time, how un-American


It's our fate, two years late for the revolution
Marching on, McCarthy's wrong, fight for liberation
In our genes, in our minds, doesn't really matter
Open minds, march with pride, nothing to get over



released September 20, 2014
Lyrics by Dave Arrowsmith.
Composed by Arrowsmith/Myers.
Produced by Dave Arrowsmith.
Mastered by Jeremy Paul Carroll at Precision Mastering UK.
