Gas the Lot of Them! ! (Portrayal of an evil attitude)
This fellow's a wimp and a bit of a queer
(We don't want homosexuals living round here!)
We expect him to shape up and do his bit,
Even a coward has to show True Grit!
I'm not homophobic but look at his clothes,
It's the kind of behaviour everyone loathes,
Eye-shadow and lipstick - that's going too far!
Who needs a transvestite to prop up the bar?
At the end of the day a Man is a Man,
Be he Michael or William Or Richard or Stan,
We don't want losers and folks who are gay,
Let's send all the cripples and lesbians away!
Hitler was right - it's the end of the line,
What can you do but just gas the swine,
Let them run to their Mummies and break down and cry,
'Cos every last one of them's going to die! !
