Uncle Sam
Madness Lyrics


Here they come again hop scotching up to my door
One by one again knockety knock knocking upon my floor
Swinging on my gate they gain entry by the yard
Pulling at my hair they scream paint your thoughts upon my card

But not tonight I've got studies to examine
Tomorrow I'll be watching all the Queen's men
A talent contest on Monday with my Uncle Sam
Who now takes up all of my time he gives me things to do
'Cause he's a wonderful man

But I'm sailing across the sea to see my Uncle Sam
I'm sailing across the sea to be with my Uncle Sam
To be with my Uncle Sam

Silly little sniggers from the women liberators
But I'll stand and hold my post
Polished buttons and erect I'll raise the flag
I'll show those women who's the most

But not tonight I've got studies to examine
Tomorrow I'll be watching all the Queen's men
A talent contest on Monday with my Uncle Sam
Who now takes up all of my time, gives me things to do
He's a wonderful man

But not tonight I've got studies to examine
Tomorrow ah ah ah
And tomorrow I'll be watching all the Queen's men
A talent contest on Monday with my Uncle Sam
Who now takes up all of my time he gives me things to do
'Cause he's a wonderful man

@Sir Mad Doc In many ways we have been influenced by American Culture... drive in take aways, More American style food around, sports events with American style pomp, kids using American slang /rapping terms - i.e. what's up my man? Dude, Bro, Blood etc, young men wearing baseball caps in a backward manner. Sport team event that have VAR , TMO which originally derived from American Football. Low cost Airlines also originally an American concept. Shopping Malls another American concept.

Halloween trick or treat was more a rage state side then the UK, out kids don't do "penny for the guy" (which is traditionally British) , why because they focus more on Halloween.

When this song was released. People thought that the UK was becoming the 51 st State, other groups / songwriters made the same point like Madness like The The - "Heartland " which had the words " ...this is the 51st State of the US of A " A rock group called NEW MODEL ARMY had a song called "51st State".


Again at the time when this song was released the US bombed Libya from planes that was stationed in the UK. After the incident, Internationally the UK was referred to as "Americas unsinkable air craft carrier".

So in some ways its still relevant.
