Roger Waters - Watching TV

Video y letra de Watching TV, del artista Roger Waters

We were watching TV
In Tiananmen Square
Lost my baby there
My yellow rose in her bloodstained clothes
She was a short order pastry chef
In a Dim Sum dive on the Yangtze tideway
She had shiny hair, she was the daughter of an engineer
Won't you shed a tear for my yellow rose
My yellow rose in her blood stained clothes
She had perfect breasts, she had high hopes
She had almond eyes, she had yellow thighs
She was a student of philosophy
Won't you grieve with me
For my yellow rose
Shed a tear for her bloodstained clothes
She had shiny hair, she had perfect breasts
She had high hopes, she had almond eyes
She had yellow thighs, she was the daughter of an engineer
So get out your pistols, get out your stones
Get out your knives, cut them to the bone
They are the lackeys of the grocer's machine
They built the dark satanic mills that manufacture hell on earth
They bought the front row seats on Calvary
They are irrelevant to me
And I grieve for my sister

(translated): People of China
Do not forget, do not forget
The children who died for you
Long live the Republic

Did we do anything after this?
I've a feeling we did..

We were watching TV, watching TV
We were watching TV, watching TV
She wore a white bandanna that said Freedom now
She thought the Great Wall of China would come tumbling down
She was a student, her father was an engineer
Won't you shed a tear for my yellow rose
My yellow rose in her bloodstained clothes
Her grandpa fought old Chiang Kai-shek
That no-good low-down dirty rat
Who used to order his troops to fire on women and children
Imagine that, imagine that
And in the spring of '48 Mao Tse-tung got quite irate
And he kicked that old dictator Chiang out of the state of China
Chiang Kai-shek came down in Formosa and they armed the island of Quemoy
And the shells were flying across the China Sea
And they turned Formosa into a shoe factory called Taiwan
And she is different than Cro-Magnon man
She's different from Anne Boleyn
She is different from the Rosenbergs
And from the unknown Jew
She is different from the unknown Nicaraguan
Half superstar half victim
She's a victor star conceptually new
And she is different from the dodo and from the Kankabono
She is different from the Aztec and from the Cherokee
She's everybody's sister, she's symbolic of our failure
She's the one in fifty million who can help us to be free
Because she died on TV
And I grieve for my sister
