The Lyrics

ISD... Investment Services DirectiveDG Director/ate GeneralSEC Securities and Exchange CommissionEMU economic and monetary unionEEC European Economic Community
I don't want you to rule my roost
I don't want you to cook my goose
I don't want you to tie my noose
I just want you to cut me loose

I don't want you to make my laws
I know want no Jaques Delors
Don't try to tell me what I've gotta do
I just want out of the EMU

I don't want no interfering DG
I don't want no single currency
I don't wanna bank with the ERB
I just want out of the EEC

I don't want to be in no Eurozone
Don't want you messing with my home loan
Don't want you putting up my interest rate
I just want out of this superstate

I know that you think I'm just a Eurosceptic
That I'm a sucker for old Karl Marx's dialectic
You think that I'm deadbeat washed up just pathetic
But you'll never get me to be to be apologetic

But I don't want you to legislate
I don't want you to decide my fate
The Single European Act is what I hate
Hey guys let's hear it for the nation state

Don't want to hear about your action plan
Don't want to listen to your wise old man
Don't want no Treaty of Amsterdam
I wanna keep a pint of beer - I hate those kilogrammes

I don't want no Euro SEC
I don't wanna implement the ISD
I don't wanna give up my sovereignty
I wanna send a letter to my MP

I don't want no hegemony
I don't want no conspiracy
Don't want the Bilderbergs and Trilats to call the shots
I wanna keep hold of what I've got

Old Baron Lamfalussy and his men are oh so wise
They are all very keen for us to harmonise
But don't you listen to what they've got to say
They're bankers after all they're bound to make you pay.

Well done Martha! I was browsing through some of your earlier songs the other day-your writing seems to have grown by leaps & bounds! Love your stuff. :-D

Thanks for the comments Foghart ( and others such as the Rolling Stones) did do a cover verison of this on their first album. The writer and original performer was Etta James

I think this one was a bit over my head. Whether it's because it was politics, European politics, or because I'm just a very shallow person, you be the judge =) - July 04, 2004 - Report this comment
Ditto Jeffaroo's comment (but I'll bet the line about beer got his attention). To make matters worse, I DKTOS. Lame me. But there is some great rhyming in this.

Well done, Martha. I wasn't familiar with the original song, but read that it is a Diet Coke adverisement? I agree with Spaff about the clever rhyming, particularly the Euroseptic verse. I will toast to British independence from the EMU with a pint of Newcastle Brown Ale.

A song about my pet hate! Really well done - I always weigh myself in stones and pounds, and measure myself in feet and inches and long may it continue. You hit the nail right on the head.
