The Jam ~ Eton Rifles ..

Eton College is a famous English public school in Berkshire regarded as the epitome of Britain's privileged elite.. Its cadet corps is the Eton College Combined Cadet Force, which was founded in 1860 as the Eton College Rifle Corps..The song itself recounts the difficulties faced by the unemployed and lower paid working class in protesting against a system loaded against them..Literally, the first part of the line means "drink up your beer and collect your cigarettes", though in this case it is likely a double entendre referring both to a group of friends hurriedly leaving a pub, and to the British boarding school practice of fagging; a hierarchical authority structure in which younger students acted as personal servants to those in higher forms..., and Ladyes, hold the presses!.This just in! By curious quirk of faith, we have the perfect story with which to launch our satellite news network tonight..There's hierarchies even in nature..Men must be governed!.Often not wisely, but governed nonetheless..Right lads, now, I know there's not a faint heart among you, and I know you're as anxious as I am to get into close action..This will test our nerve, and discipline will count just as much as courage...
