Horrible Histories – Luddite lyrics

Horrible Histories – Luddite lyrics

[Verse 1]
We were weavers highly skilled
To things were mechanised
Craft and artisanship killed
A threat to all our lives.

[Verse 2]
Machines meant the workforce shrunk.
You think you’d see us settle
When bosses said ‘Lets junk each punk
And replace you… With heavy metal

[Chorus]
Luddite Luddite Luddite Luddite Luddites
The working man was sacrificed
Luddite Luddite Luddite Luddite Luddites
Turned us in to anar-chists

[Verse 3]
Industrial reolution
Our old life over thrown
So we came up with a solution
A revolution of our own

[Verse 4]
Met in the hills and planned to smash
Their weaving machines of gloom
Hear that sweet music as we bash
A wop bam a loom ahh A wop bam boom

[Chorus]
Luddite Luddite Luddite Luddite Luddites
Industrial weaving it’s a stitch up
Luddite Luddite Luddite Luddite Luddites
Break the device and smash my swtich up

[Verse 5]
We named our movement after ned ludd
A folk hero who myth proclaimed
Once reacted in a fit of rage
By smashing up some knitting frames

[Verse 6]
So we formed the new luddite army
Started to riot
It all went barmy

[Verse 7]
Laws were passed to shake our wills
Sent solders armed with guns
All though we tried to break things still
We fought the law but the law won

[Verse 8]
Trial and punisments were seen
It’s clear we lost the fight
But thanks to our rage against the machine
Now carries the name
Ludd-ite

[Chorus]
Luddite Luddite Luddite Luddite Luddites
This band struggles carries on
Luddite Luddite Luddite Luddite Luddites
Wont rest to machines are all gone

[Outro]
Solo
On what exactly?
