BRITISH GOVERNMENT’S WELSHING ANTHEM

 

Employ me oh thy great deceiver

put me through so many hoops

I am weak and thou art mighty

Feed me with thy grasping hand

Power uneven, power uneven

Greed will always want some more

Greed will always want some more

 

Firstly there’ll be wage freezes

then there’ll be persecution of the ill

Then you’ll create an internal jobs market

before you abandon redundancy pay

Power uneven, power uneven

Greed will always want some more

Greed will always want some more

 

Public purse sees the great receiver

exploitation increases as business grows

I only vote but you take brown envelopes

usurping democracy with things underhand

Power uneven, power uneven

Greed will always want some more

Greed will always want some more

 

Exploit away you great deceiver

run roughshod over real fairness

people struggle, you cheat on expenses

then you  impose class austerity

Power uneven, power uneven

Greed will always want some more

Greed will always want some more

 

Renege on contracts you bunch of swindlers

use science as a conspirator

Apply your rules only to the proletariat

so you and your cronies make personal wealth

Power uneven, power uneven

Greed will always want some more

Greed will always want some more
