THE ANDERSON SHELTER
Music - Roger Waters
Woman - It's funny to think there's no shelters this time. We had an old Anderson shelter in the garden. I can see it now. We had stertians growing all over it, and we painted the front green. Painted it looked quite pretty. Next door grew cabbages on theirs.
Man - Yes, we had a Morrison. I used to sleep in it. Mmm. I stuck pin-up girls all over the inside. Betty Grabel, Ann Shelton, Patricia Rock. The roof got all smoky, 'cause I used to read in bed with a candle.
Woman - Yes, it was nice at the war, really. The shelters, the blackouts, cups of tea...
Man - The A.R.P, the evacuees, London kids seeing cows for the first time...
Woman - Old Churchill on the wires...
Man - Those were the days.
