Spitting Image - Every Bomb You Drop

Every Bomb You Make - Gordon Sumner

"Every Bomb You Make" is a parody of the 1983 Police song, "Every Breath You Take.". The real Sting agreed to sing it in exchange for copies of every episode of the first series.

The song is a protest song against the Cold War and the ills of the world in general and features the puppets of Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Arthur Scargill, Ian MacGregor, Ian Paisley, Konstantin Chernenko, Robert Mugabe, Fidel Castro, Colonel Gadaffi, Erich Honecker, Idi Amin, Leonid Brezhnev, Adolf Hitler, Indira Gandhi, Ruhollah Khomaini and P.W. Botha.

By the final line, it is revealed that the singer of the song is none other than Death himself, who glares eerily at the screen as the sun in the background finally sets, seemingly promising those featured in the song that in the end, he will claim them too, as no one is above Death and his final judgement...

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Every bomb you make, (Ronald Reagan)
And every job you take, (Margaret Thatcher)
Every heart you break, (Arthur Scargill and Ian MacGregor)
Every Irish wake, (Ian Paisley)
I’ll be watching you…

Every wall you build, (Erich Honecker)
And everyone you've killed, (Robert Mugabe)
Every grave you've filled, (Fidel Castro)
All the blood you've spilled, (Colonel Gadaffi)
I’ll be watching you…

Oh, can't you see? (Erich Honecker)
You belong to me. (Idi Amin)
There’ll be a bill to pay, (Leonid Brezhnev)
On that judgement day... (Adolf Hitler)

For every empty plate, (Indira Gandhi)
And every word of hate, (Ruhollah Khomaini)
Those who subjugate, (P.W. Botha)
Those who violate, (Konstantin Chernenko)
I’ll be watching you… (Death)
