Lyrics - The dictator decides

Will someone please say the unsayable? · Will someone
please tell me I'm wrong? · I live every day· like a sad
beast of prey· forl have to appear to be strong· and
that's wrong· I'm too weak to be strong

Today I met with the generals· and the head of my secret
police· discussing conspiracies· and prison facilities·
for opponents I can never release· and there'll be no
peace· until they're released
Of course I'm in league with the army· It's not like I've
got any choice· They officially adore me· and my father
before me· but gunpoint has a firm voice
The joke is I'm not even a demagogue· Have you heard
me giving a speech? · My facts are invented· I sound
quite demented· so deluded it beggars belief· It would
be such a relief· not to give another speech
Can someone please say the impossible? · Crowds
should be out on the street· I've lost any will· to threaten
and kill· r'll be easy for you to defeat· And at any
resistance I meet· I'll beat a retreat
I'd rather that you didn't shoot me· but I'd quite
understand if you did· Watch out for the army· The
generals'll go barmy· at the thought of a takeover bid
Oh please will somebody put me· out of my misery? ·
This sad old dictator· must sooner or later· flee so that
you can be free· If you get rid of me· we can all be free
