In Zurich
Christy Moore

Young people on the street they meet
Underneath the lamplight bright
Outside diamond jewellery windows
Dazzling their sight tonight

Anger in their blood it pounds
Echoes in a hollow sound
It all comes tumbling down
In Zurich

What the children learn at school
Is all that glitters must be gold
Those who don't accept this rule
Find themselves out in the cold

Send there by well-to-do
Beautiful people
Who don't have time for the likes of you
In Zurich

It all began one morning find
The government money came to town
A fortune went to the concert hall
Not one penny trickled down

To the youth center in the middle of town
They want to close it down
Don't want youngsters hangin' round
In Zurich

Suddenly a sparked light
Upon that well remembered night
In the flash with bricks and bottles
Came a most surprising sight

Fired by a smoldering heat
5.000 angry children meet
And break every window in that most beautiful street
In Zurich

Anarchy in streets of gold
Lights are flashing, sirens wail
Frightened eyes behind the windows
Watch young ones go to jail

Soldiers in well armed ranks
Behind water cannon tanks
With plastic bullets to protect the banks
Of Zurich

How can such trouble be?
Is this the writing on the wall?
The pillars of society
Make a very anxious call

Quietly the call for peace
Discipline to say the least
What we need is more police
In Zurich

From the gardens of Geneva
To the flowered streets of Amsterdam
Inside the walls of West Berlin
Trouble goes from hand to hand

Children in the cold
Bring anarchy to streets of gold
That's what I was told
In Zurich
