It’s a tug of war…

Blogger @davidkanigan used the phrase ‘tug of war’ in a recent post and it reminded me of this Paul McCartney ballad — a forgotten favorite that you may have missed. The accompanying images of Paul and Linda made me nostalgic and the lyrics are actually quite good [and understandable]. Enjoy…

It’s a tug of war
What with one thing and another
It’s a tug of war
We expected more
But with one thing and another
We were trying to outdo each other
In a tug of war
In another world
In another world
We could stand on top of the mountain
With our flag unfurled
In a time to come
In a time to come
We will be dancing to the beat played
On a different drum
It’s a tug of war
Though I know I mustn’t grumble
It s a tug of war
But I can’t let go
If I do you’ll take a tumble
And the whole thing is going to crumble
It’s a tug of war
In years to come they may discover
What the air we breathe and the life we lead
Are all about
But it won’t be soon enough
Soon enough for me
No it won’t be soon enough
Soon enough for me
In another world
We could stand on top of the mountain
With our flag unfurled
In a time to come we will be dancing to the beat played
On a different drum
We will be dancing to the beat
Played on a different drum
We will be dancing to the beat
Played on a different drum
It’s a tug of war, (a tug of war, a tug of war)
What with one thing and another
It’s a tug of war
We expected more
But with one thing and another
We were trying to outscore each other
In a tug of war
