I Want to Have a Little Bomb like You

This is taken from the 1969 issue of the 1964 Edinburgh Folk Festival recording.

The lyrics are by Sydney Carter and it is sung by Nadia Cattouse.

I do not own any copyright on this but I could not find it anywhere apart from this vinyl record and I can't let this great song be forgotten.

Hit that drum a great big whack,
I want to have a little bomb like you.
Fall in line and follow, follow,
I want to have a little bomb like you.
I like you and you like me,
but just in case we disagree,
I want to have a little bomb like you,
I want to have a little bomb like you

Charles de Gaulle, he said to me:
I want to have a little bomb like you.
Independent I will be,
I want to have a little bomb like you.
You can wave your Union Jack,
Stars and Stripes are on the back.
I want to have a little bomb like you,
I want to have a little bomb like you.

Mao Tse Tung to Khrushchev said:
I want to have a little bomb like you,
my bomb will be twice as red.
I want to have a little bomb like you.
If we all go up in flames,
that will be a bloody shame.
I want to have a little bomb like you,
I want to have a little bomb like you.

Everybody says the same:
I want to have a little bomb like you,
I am not the one to blame,
I want to have a little bomb like you.
Who will be the first to say
"Throw the bloody thing away"?
I don't want to be the first, do you?
I don't want to be the first, do you?
