Jon Astley - I'll Show You Bastards



From the depths of this long hard winter
From the edge of complete despair
I'll turn around and face the music
Show them I mean it, I'll show them I care

I've got such good reason to be consumed with passion
I've been labeled a failure, expected to die
No chasing rainbows, this is no daydream
With a wing and a prayer I'm expecting to fly

I'll show you bastards with reason and rhyme
I'll make my mark now that you've drawn the line
Revenge is so sweet and the pleasure's all mine
I'll show you bastards this time - I'll show you

Just for the record, they make such promises
When all is revealed in the cold light of day
And who can stand the trials of tribulation
Nobody means a word that they say

I know I will leave myself wide open
After that non event it's too easy to be wise
But who are they that never listen
We can all see the trees but they can't see the light

I'll show the bastards with reason and rhyme
I'll leave my mark now that you've drawn your line
Revenge is all sweet when the pleasure's all mine
I'll show you bastards this time - I'll show you
