The Lyrics

Now look at them MPs that's the way they did it
You pay the council tax at the post office
That ain't workin' that's Unemployable
Politics for nothin' and more TAX for free
Now that ain't workin' that's Unemployable
Lemme tell ya them guys ain't dumb
Maybe get a Bill on your door step
Maybe get a Bill on your E-Mail

We gotta vote for less TAXs
Custom wages, good rates of pay
We gotta move these charges
We gotta move these Rent bills

See the little MP in the suit like Blaire and the big grin
Yeah buddy that's his own hair?
That little MP got his own jet airplane
That little MP he's a millionaire

We gotta vote for less TAXs
Custom wages, good rates of pay
We gotta move these charges
We gotta move these Rent bills

I shoulda learned politics for charges
I shoulda learned to pay them Bills
Look at that mama, she got it stickin' in the Post Office
Man we could have some Mon-ney
And he's up there, what's that ? Politician noises ?
Bangin' on the Morgage like a chimpanzee
That ain't workin' that's Unemployable
Get your Politics for nothin' get more TAX for free

We gotta vote for less TAXs
Custom wages, good rates of pay
We gotta move these charges
We gotta move these Rent bills

Now that ain't workin' that's Unemployable
You pay the TAX at the Post Office
That ain't workin' that's Unemployable
Politics for nothin' get More Tax for free
Money for nothin' get More Tax for free
