The Kinks Announcement Lyrics
It has been rumored that a new People's Army has been formed by a certain
'Commander Black'. A few minor incidents have already been reported, and further
unconfirmed reports suggest that this is a definite attempt to overthrow the
present government which is led by Mr. Flash.
We would like to stress that these are only unconfirmed rumors, but we will
of course bring you up-to-date news and information on these reports as they
come in. Meanwhile we do urge the population not to panic and to remain calm
during the crisis.
Please stay tuned to this station for further bulletins.
"In just a few moments, Mr. Black is due to address the people.
We are now going over for live coverage of his speech."
"Well, the scene here's absolutely indescribable.
I've personally never seen anything like it before.
The crowd of around what, 30,000 people,
have been waiting all day for the arrival of Mr. Black and his entourage.
And it is expected that one of the main topics of his speech this evening
will be the controversial anti-(?) corruption bill
which Mr. Black wants brought into effect immediately
to put an end to the current wide spread decline in public moral standards.
Wait just a minute, there he is, I can see Mr. Black now.
He's surrounded by, of course, all his bodyguards
and as you can hear the crowd is going wild with excitement:
It's ranting, it's cheering
As Mr. Black finally makes his way on that far side onto the platform.
An now, yes there he is, he is about to speak."
"News has just reached us of a major victory for Mr. Black
and the People's Army.
The battle took place on the outskirts of a small village
somewhere in the northern zone.
Casualties on both sides are reported to have been very high indeed
and our on-the-spot correspondent describes the fighting
as some of the fiercest in living memory.
No quarter has been shown on either side."
"At 6:00 AM this morning, the victorious People's Army
overthrew the corrupt regime that has been ruling over our country.
It is reported that Mr. Flash and his gang were all taken prisoners.
They have been taken to a secret hideout where they will be tried
for treason by a People's Court."
"A state of emergency was declared by the government at 8:00 AM today.
It was stated that this step has been taken
in the interest of national security
and the emergency measures set out in today's announcement
will remain enforced for an indefinite period.
A curfew will take effect as from this evening
and will operate between 9:00 PM and 6:00 AM each day.
The curfew will be enforced by patrols from the People's Army
and severe penalties are to be imposed on anyone found on the streets
during the daily curfew period.
Food rationing is to be introduced immediately
and shops will only be allowed to open for a period of three hours each day.
Restrictions on the use of petrol start immediately.
Restrictions on the use of electricity, gas and water
will also be announced shortly.
All places of public entertainment will be closed until further notice.
All television channels are now closed down and
radio broadcasts will operate on this channel only.
And now, here is the People's Choir singing the new National Anthem
which led our victorious troops into battle."
