Strapping Young Lad - Skesis Lyrics

Blindfolded and taken to a rough part of town by two strapping lads, the privileged young toff is instructed to remove his clothing and present his naked body for inspection by a group of common cleaning women.

lyrics by Strapping Young Lad: March!!

-- : Classroom canings: Eleven clips.

Five boys each receive four strokes on the backside in front of their class.
A boy in army uniform bends over to be caned.
A young lady teacher does her best to cane a senior boy amid jocularity.
A mass bare-bottom paddling of technical school students.
A lady teacher whacks two boys in class with a small stick.
Four secondary boys get a quick-fire paddling in class.
Secondary students get a hard paddle swat at front of class.
A succession of boys and girls are punished with a ruler on the hands.
Seven secondary boys vigorously whacked with a broomstick.
Twelve senior boys get a brisk classroom caning.
Five teenagers bend over a chair for a light paddling.

A disorderly mob whips a thief mercilessly.
