The Lyrics

"Brexit" is a term coined to represent the separation of the United Kingdom from the European Union, prevalent in the European media since 2015. The original song appeared on the album "Burnin'" and is often associated with Bob Marley or Eric Clapton personally, rather than The Wailers, Bob's backing band.
I voted Brexit,
But I don’t support the DUP, oh no no!
I voted Brexit,
But I didn’t vote for poverty, yeah.
All around this meh-tropolis
They’re tryin’ to track me down;
The old guard say they want more harmony
But they’re making all the Eurocrats frown.

I’ve sailed from Dover
But I’ve never docked in Tilbury
Oh, no no!
I’ve sailed from Dover
And from Harwich cross the cold North Sea.

George Osborne always hated me,
For what, I don’t know:
Every time I wrote to him,
He said “Go away” and “No, no no!”
He says, “Bilderberg’s the way to go”.
And so
(We’ve read it in the news!).

I voted Brexit,
But I don’t support the DUP, oh no no! (Where was the DUP?)
They speak with passion,
But they’re just a small minority.

They couldn’t sustain an assembly
For our brothers ’cross the Irish Sea,
But their stubbornness keeps the Tories in power
Since they lost their slim majority.

I sailed from Harwich,
But containers go from Felixstowe.
Friends flew from Gatwick,
But how they got there I don’t know!

Freedom will be mine one day
Thanks to Article Fifty,
All of a sudden I heard Jacob’s speech
So I - joined the ERG,
So I clapped and clapped although I heard him say:
“If we is guilty you will pay!”
Reflexes had got the better of me
And what is to be must be:
Each week the Pound sees a slight decline,
One day the bottom will drop out!

I - I - I - I liked The Empire,
But, I never liked the EEC (It’s not for me).
I - I voted Brexit -
But I don’t support the DUP. No! No!
The DUP is the Democratic Unionist Party, founded in Northern Ireland in 1971, and having a conspicuous public alignment with Britain's Conservative Party since 2017. During the last election to a provincial assembly, it achieved equality with Sinn Fein in terms of members elected. The EEC was the European Economic Community, a forerunner of the European Union (EU). The ERG is a cluster of Conservative Party members broadly supporting Brexit, calling themselves the European Research Group; that is not a name that has ever appeared on ballot papers. "Eurocrats" is an informal term for public servants supporting the European Commission, the EU, the European Parliament, or ancillary organisations, often in a derogatory way. George Osborne was a minister in the Conservative Government that decided to hold a referendum on the UK's membership of the EU, a vote that happened in June 2016. Personally, he is hostile to the Brexit process, which is defined in Article Fifty of a treaty binding on all EU member states.

Dont know the full situation in Great Britain, but it sure looks like you did a spot on (am I British yet) parody of the Original song. That OS is not so easy. I've got a good parody title for it -- I Shot Al Sharif (But I Did Not Shoot Al Wahhabi) -- but so far just too much work
