Give us our band back!

Hey, America! All listen to me,
Now is the time to give us our band back!
I know you love them as much as we do,
But they belong to us, they were born here,
Here, on the ground of our old continent,
On an island, on the furthest island away,
As if they were trying to reach out for you.
And like old parents trying to hold back their kids
We finally let go of them because we had to,
Because, you know, it's better out there,
It's more spectacular, it's more, always more,
With all your blinding lights, your 'bigness',
You stole them from us, attracting like fire.
Sometimes they come back, you know, for Xmas,
For holidays, lying in the sun of the Riviera,
But like a boomerang, they fly away again,
Right back in your hand, as steady as firm,
Seems like they forget about us, one memory at a time,
All replaced by your new memories together,
Your love affair, romantic nights and concerts,
We feel like we're history and you're future,
Why do you have to keep them now?
We won't be living any much longer,
We need them, you had your share of it,
Time has come to give us our band back!

And to the rest of the world I say, soon you too will have them.


Sorry, I don't know what happened there.

I'm just kiddin, of course, but can't wait for 9 of July in France!


PS: I don't really know if my post thematically belongs in this forum, sorry, if it doesn't.

I said I didn't know if I was in the right place here, apparently I'm not.
Also, it was a big joke (not obvious enough!) between America and EUROPE. Europe, you know, all those small countries all around France!
The joke was that Europe let the band go to America like parents let their kids go to college.
Anyway, never mind...

U2 belong in Ireland, but we share them because, it is the only non-Paddy thing we are known for.

*voice in outrageous accent* No, you may not have your band back you French swine, I fart in your general direction!

Now go away, or I'll taunt you again!

PS- in case it isn't obvious, this is a lame attempt to re-create a Monty Python bit, not to be taken seriously.

yeah, you got the "lame" part right

Anyway, I just thought I too would register my disgust at the length of time being spent in the US by U2...and I need to laugh at U1 because we Brits/Irish see them first.

CARDIFF 29TH JUNE. WHO'S WITH ME?!

Give you your band back!?!? You're in France. I'm confused. If you're talking as a European, Ireland isn't even a part of the EU if I'm not mistaken. I know you're kidding though...Have fun at the show!

Sorry, my bad on the EU stuff. I know you don't have to be part of the EU to be European, but I was curious if Ireland considers themselves as Eurpoean. I know many in England don't.
