" The Great British Mistake" i made my version based on the Live impact 1977 version "
not with The 11th song on

"Crossing the Red Sea with the Adverts" The Adverts’ 1978 debut album and featured the UK hit single: “No Time To Be 21” which made No. 38 in February 1978. It was recorded at Abbey Road and produced by John Leckie.

Trouser Press said "in its own way" the album "is the equal of the first Sex Pistols or Clash LP, a hasty statement that captures an exciting time".] In March 2003, Mojo magazine ranked 'Crossing the Red Sea with the Adverts' number 17 in its 'Top 50 Punk Albums'.

Music &Lyrics: The Adverts(TV Smith)

-The Great British Mistake-

The Great British Mistake
was looking for a way out,
Was getting complacent,
not noticing The pulse was racing.
The mistake
was fighting The change,
was staying the same.

It couldn't adapt
so it couldn't survive,
Something had to give.
The people take a downhill
slide into the gloom.
Into the darn recesses
of their minds.

I swoop over your city like a bird.
I climb the high branches and observe.
Into the mouth, into the soul.
I cast a shadow that swallows you whole.

I swoop, I climb, I cling, I suck,
I swallow you whole.

String out the drip-feed,
they're losing their world,
They're losing their hard boys and magazine girls.

Advert illegal,
T.V. as outlaw,
motive as spell.

They'll see the books burn.
They'll be 4 5 1,
It's people against things
not against each other.

Out of the pre-pack,
into the fear,
into themselves.

Great British Mistake!!!

The genie's out of the bottle,
call in the magician.
They didn't mean to free him,
devil behind them,
Devil in the mirror,
chained to their right hands.

Great British Mistake!!!

They'll have to come to terms now,
they'll take it out somehow.
They'll blame it all on something.

The British mistake -
when will it be over?

How can they
avoid it?(3x)

The Great British Mistake!!!(8X)
