Artist/Band: Pink Floyd
Lyrics for Song: When The Tigers Broke Free
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs - Pink Floyd



It was just before dawn

One miserable morning in black 'forty four.

When the forward commander

Was told to sit tight

When he asked that his men be withdrawn.

And the generals gave thanks

As the other ranks held back

The enemy tanks for a while.

And the anzio bridgehead

Was held for the price

Of a few hundred ordinary lives.



And kind old King George

Sent mother a note

When he heard that father was gone.

It was, I recall,

In the form of a scroll,

With gold leaf and all.

And I found it one day

In a drawer of old photographs, hidden away.

And my eyes still grow damp to remember

His majesty signed

With his own rubber stamp.



It was dark all around.

There was frost in the ground

When the tigers broke free.

And no one survived

From the royal fusiliers company c.

They were all left behind,

Most of them dead,

The rest of them dying.

And that's how the high command

Took my daddy from me.
