Danny Nedelko Lyrics

[Verse 1]
My blood brother is an immigrant
A beautiful immigrant
My blood brother's Freddie Mercury
A Nigerian mother of three

[Pre-Chorus]
He's made of bones, he's made of blood
He's made of flesh, he's made of love
He's made of you, he's made of me
Unity!


[Chorus]
Fear leads to panic, panic leads to pain
Pain leads to anger, anger leads to hate

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey, ey, ey, ey
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey, ey, ey, ey
Danny Nedelko

[Verse 2]
My best friend is an alien (I know him, and he is!)
My best friend is a citizen
He's strong, he's earnest, he's innocent
My blood brother is Malala
A Polish butcher, he's Mo Farah

[Pre-Chorus]
He's made of bones, he's made of blood
He's made of flesh, he's made of love
He's made of you, he's made of me
Unity!

[Chorus]
Fear leads to panic, panic leads to pain
Pain leads to anger, anger leads to hate
Yeah, yeah,Hey, ey, ey, ey
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey, ey, ey, ey
Danny Nedelko

[Bridge]
The D, the A, the N, the N, the Y
The N, the E, the D, the E, the L
The K, the O, the C, the O, the M
The M, the U, the N, the I, the T
The Y, the S, the O, the F, the U
The C, the K, the Y, the O and the U

And you, and you, and you, and you

[Chorus]
Yeah, yeah,Hey, ey, ey, ey
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey, ey, ey, ey
Danny Nedelko
Yeah, yeah,yeah, yeah
Hey, ey, ey, ey
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey, ey, ey, ey

About “Danny Nedelko”

“Danny Nedelko” is the second single from Joy as an Act of Resistance, named after the Ukranian frontman of fellow British punk band Heavy Lungs. It was premiered by Hew Stevens on BBC Radio 1 on June 4, 2018.

In the song Joe Talbot talks about immigrants and the main idea is quite simple: we are all humans and we are all equal, with no regard for race and origin.
“Rome wasn’t built in a day nor solely by the Romans” reads the quote on the artwork of the single.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    This song came about in the belly of the album. We were in full swing of Joy and the momentum of this song summed up the spirit of our union. I promised Danny [Nedelko, member of Bristol band Heavy Lungs and a Ukrainian immigrant] I’d write a song for him and him me; the tone comes from Danny, and the lyrics came as I thought of his exuberance and how important people like Danny are. I think of this one more as a humane portrait than a political song, but I wanted the two notions to be inseparable.

    Joe Talbot.

  • Who is Danny Nedelko?

    Danny Nedelko is a Ukrainian immigrant, frontman of Bristol band Heavy Lungs. Danny himself features in the official video for the song.
