Terror Couple Kill Colonel (Version Two)

Version Two starts at 5:48. It’s a little slower than Version One (the actual single) and features both different music (David wasn’t tuned properly, so the bass is in the wrong key on this version) and heavily distorted vocals.

Terror couple kill colonel
Terror couple kill colonel

His eyes were heavy
He carried a card
One couple questioned
The others discharged
Terror couple kill colonel
In his West German home
Three shots from three feet
Dragged himself to the phone

Terror couple kill colonel
Terror couple kill colonel

And as he lay there
Playing games with his pain
He felt his choice of jobs
Was such a mistake
He could have been a doctor
In a soft easy chair
Instead he chose three stars
A territorial affair

Terror couple kill colonel
Terror couple kill colonel

In his West German home
In his West German home
In his West German home
In his West German home
