Il Testo della della canzone Di: The Invaders – Ray Davies

[RD:]
They called us the Invaders

[JD:]
Americana. It started as a flickering black and white image through an old movie projector. Faces of cowboys and indians. The good guys victorious over the emissaries of evil. My early visions of America came from the cinema. Then there were the guns; deliverers of truth, justice and the American way.

The day the Invaders came

[RD:]
In the early 1950's, Communism was still the scourge of the so-called free world. UFOs had been sighted across America, and films such as 'The Invaders from Mars', 'The Blob' and 'Creatures from the Black Lagoon' served as a warning that there were still forces of evil waiting if America ever dropped its guard.

They called us the Invaders

[JD:]
As I grew up the music took over. Rock, jazz, skiffle and blues - those country songs came to liberate me. The music gave me hope, a feeling that I could express myself. The cowboys in those old black and white movies seem to have values. You knew who the good guys were. Then, as I toured America with my band, I saw the place first hand: from the roadside of a dreary bus stop to the big gigs at the Hollywood Bowl and Madison Square Garden. America was secure. Its borders were safe.

[RD:]
It was against such a backdrop that the unbelievable happened: the Invaders landed. The British pop invasion had arrived.

Cos the world as we knew it turned upside down
And things would never be the same
The day the Invaders came

[JD:]
At the height of our success in the 1960s, The Kinks were banned from touring the U.S.A. for 4 years. When we did return, we toured the U.S.A. relentlessly.

[RD:]
Tour after tour. Year after year. To win back what we'd lost.

[JD:]
They called us the Invaders.
