The Lyrics

Another instalment from "The Unfortunates".
CAN YOU SEE OUR REASON WHY

Stanley

Can you see our reason why
We are an angry bunch of guys?
We’re fed up with politicians
Who just tell a bunch of lies!
In our heart we know we’re right
When we are dealing with those bums
Which is the reason we will fight
When the right time comes!

Colin

Who will join our merry band?
How many unions think as we?
There are those throughout the land
Who want to join us, wait and see!

Norman

So march with us now
In a bid to show how you agree!

All

Can you see our reason why
We are an angry bunch of guys?
We are fed up with politicians
Who feed us a bunch of lies!
In our heart we know we’re right
In our heart we know we’re right
When we are dealing with those bums
Which is the reason we will fight
When the right time comes!

Fred

Will you down your tools and strike
And bring your banners on the day?
There’s a chance it may be raining
But we’ll do it anyway!
We’ll do what it will take
For better conditions and pay!

All

Can you see our reason why
We are an angry bunch of guys?
We are fed up with politicians
Who feed us a bunch of lies!
In our heart we know we’re right
In our heart we know we’re right
When we are dealing with those bums
Which is the reason we will fight
When the right time comes

My favorite song from Les Mis. Excellent adaptation to a modern grievance situation. The disgust with lying politicians certainly resonates with me. It would be nice if you could consolidate your parodies into a site where they could be viewed in the same order as the original musical.
