Eric Clapton: Stand and Deliver

Last Thursday on Fox News' Gutfeld, Eric Clapton and Van Morrison got shout-outs from the host for being unlikely rebels, considering both musical legends are in the mid-70s. 

The current young generation is simply a bunch of wimps. 

Here's Clapton from last year singing a Morrison-penned anti-COVID lockdown song, "Stand and Deliver." 

This is a lyrical segment of note:
Magna Carta, Bill of Rights
The constitution, what's it worth?
You know they're gonna grind us down, ah
Until it really hurts.
Is this a sovereign nation 
Or just a police state? 
You better look out people 
Before it gets too late

The phrase "stand and deliver" was, or as legend has it, the British version of America's "stick 'em up," the warning from robbers to get ready to be robbed of your valuables. "Highwaymen" plagued the UK countryside in the 18th century, one of the most notorious of them was Dick Turpin. 

Here's the last line from the song, "Dick Turpin wore a mask too."

With the WHO and local and national governmental bodies exaggerating the monkey pox outbreak, we need to be worried.
