The Lyrics

Pythonesque humour is ironic and often surreal, and appears to poke fun at other people, but of course, we are really poking fun at ourselves.
Whenever life gets you down, Mr. Brown
And things seem hard or tough...
Your colleagues are stupid, arrogant or blind,
And the electorate's had just about enough...

Just remember you're in charge of an economy that's large,
And growing by the minute every day.
You can tax them till they bleed, and tell them that's just what they need -
They wouldn't want it any other way.
The man next door and me and all the other folks you see
Are better off than they've ever been before.
'Cos we've all got work to do, immigrants all have jobs too
And we're asking them to send us even more.

Immigrants unlike Brits, keep on producing, reproducing,
Providing us a growing labour force.
To do jobs that me and you, would find too unpleasant to do -
Like cleaning up the streets or in the NHS as a nurse.
The old people all tell that they are very pleased as well,
With the Christmas box they're getting every year
And we're cutting down the army, who defend us from Iraq
And we are teaching you the politics of fear.

With our friends, the USA, we'll drive the terrorists away,
We'll hit and hunt them till there's no place they can hide.
We won't hit children if they fail, we'll put the foxhunters in jail,
The best place for them, and it cannot be denied.
So remember, when you feel that you don't feel freedom any more,
How amazingly sleazy were the Tories,
How their policies are ours now, and there ain't no other choice -
So don't believe the media's lying stories.
