The Lyrics

During the last fireman's strike here in the UK, I was so impressed by the way New Labour handled negotiations I thought it was worthy of a song.
It's late at night back in Downing Street
With no sober people in sight
At the end of the room there's John Presscott
Looking for someone to fight
He says show us your strength Mr Fireman
I can take you all in a fight
Coz I'm 'ard and I'm tough and I've just 'ad enough
And I want to get "ome for the night

La la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Negotiate John with the firemen
Thrash out a deal tonight
Cause we're all in the mood for a settlement
This time just do something right

Now Prescott he glares at the firemen
This humble New Labour vessel
And he's quick with a threat but he's not finished yet
Coz Prescott he likes to arm wrestle
He says come on yer bastards I'll "ave yer
I'll take you on one by one
Don't give me no flack, you can bet I'll be back
And torch all your houses for fun

La la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Now John is a second rate minister
His style is hard and bullish
Who sits on the fence and cannot make sense
'Cause he can't understand joined up English
But the hour is late and John's hungry
For a sarnie and Watney's best keg
He's waited some time but now only to find
That some joker had ordered him egg

PIANO INSTRUMENTAL

Negotiate John with the firemen
Thrash out a deal tonight
'Cause we're all in the mood for a settlement
This time just do something right

And the talks they are still continuing
Who'll be the first to cave in
The firemens' militant union
Or Labours doctors of spin
It's been twenty odd years since the last strike
And it looks like Blair will not learn
While he plays and he fiddles with politics, man
The rest of the country will burn

La la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Negotiate John with the firemen
Thrash out a deal tonight
'Cause we're all in the mood for a settlement
This time just do something right
