Lyrics


New Dress

Sex jibe husband murders wife

Bomb blast victim fights for life

Girl, thirteen, attacked with knife


Princess Di is wearing a new dress


Jet airliner shot from sky

Famine horror, millions die

Earthquake terror figures rise


Princess Di is wearing a new dress


You can't change the world

But you can change the facts

And when you change the facts

You change points of view

If you change points of view

You may change a vote

And when you change a vote

You may change the world


In black townships, fires blaze

Prospects better, premier says

Within sight are golden days


Princess Di is wearing a new dress


You can't change the world

But you can change the facts

And when you change the facts

You change points of view

If you change points of view

You may change a vote

And when you change a vote

You may change the world


Princess Di is wearing a new dress
