United Kingdom

There's a gang I've just joined

Three million strong you'd agree

(Four million strong I'd agree)

Enrollment was easy, so easy

Getting out proves to be the difficulty.

From Land's End to John O'Groats

They are making ends meet

Mending holes in their coat

Fasting and feasting on bread and margarine

Burning dreams build upon buried hopes.

 

United Kingdom - you'd better ring them

You've a solution - you better bring them

United Kingdom - United Kingdom

You've a solution - you better bring them.

 

Opportunities, I guess they all came and went

Finding it hard

Finding the rent

You'll find it funny

With your finger running down

Situations vacant.

 

In school he was an athlete

Now he's not so self-assured

After all of these O-levels is this my reward?

There's a silent majority, that's seen and

never heard from Charles I, Charles II

To Charles III.

 

United Kingdom - you'd better ring them

You've a solution - you better bring them

United Kingdom - United Kingdom

This busted, rusted, upper-crusted

Bankrupted done and dusted

No-man-to-be-trusted - United Kingdom

Proud to stand beneath the Union Jack?

Happy dealing up a no ace pack?

Polishing black boots

Priming the riot squad

There go I but for the grace of God

Covering up the agony with mindless entertainment

You'll be happy when they're ripping up the pavement

Bringing down the axe on steelworks and foundries

Someone said love knows no boundaries

Close your eyes and think of England

Lie back and think of her

United Kingdom - you better ring them

You've a solution - you better bring them
