The Lyrics

The irony is that Elvis would most likely have been censored in the dystopian future England of this movie.
(instrumental opening)

Big drab city with a tarnished soul.
Gonna set that soul on fire!
Got a whole lot of buildings that are ready to burn
so get those fireworks higher!

There's about eight million people waiting out there.
They know this government isn't fair.
But I'm just a devil with guts to spare.

"V for Vendetta!"
"V for Vendetta!"

Now I see that there are more
than 24 men to blow away!
And even if there were 40 more
the fifth of November is the day!

Well, there's Sutler, and Creedy, and old Prothero.
All those Norsefire men have got to go!
But my true identity, they'll never know!

"V for Vendetta!"
"V for Vendetta!"

"V for Vendetta"
with the daggers slashing
and the dynamite smashing
all these buildings in the rain.

"V for Vendetta"
'cause there's somethin' really stinkin'
in this awful future England.
Free these people once
they'll never be enslaved again!

Let Inspector Finch come, he won't spoil my fun
'cause what I'm doing ain't no crime!
Parliament is broke, and they'll always remember
that for freedom there is always time!

I'm gonna give it everything I got!
Lady Evey throws the switch, the train is hot!
And I say goodbye, so does regime of rot!
Ah!

"V for Vendetta!"
"V for Vendetta!"
"V for Vendetta!"
"V for..."
"V for...
Vendetta!"

(instrumental fadeout)
"Put it on the blacklist! I never want to hear that music again!" -- High Chancellor Adam Sutler (Sir John Hurt)... Sorry, Chancellor, you don't get to choose our entertainment anymore!

I liked it, but no vote. DKTOS. Loved the movie and your song sums it up prety well, with a side of humor.

Thanks, but... If you saw the movie, how can you not know the song?

nice work MP, and very nice title sub ("V for" for "Viva") - I just did this OS 2 days ago, and to return the gesture, I'll try to post one tonight of the Bachman Turner Overdrive one you did yesterday - ah, the warm and honourable sense of circularity! - 555

I posted about four of them the first week it was out, Charnstar: "Let It Be V," "Please, Please, V!" "No One Escapes Vendetta." And my personal favorite, "A Boy Named V." It's the most important movie of the year. After all, parodists should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their parodists.

Who was he? He was my father. And brother. And Elrond. And Agent Smith in the Matrix. And that peacock in Priscilla.
Excellent: V,V,V.
