lyrics

Back in the day
When England was for England was for English
What was England? Who can say?
Back with all the Christmas magic
Sweet nostalgia and with none of the pain.

We sailed away
Free market hubs
Still smoke in pubs
Prescription drugs
Meaningful jobs for equitable pay.

Back in the day
With Churchill's red fog
Insurance dogs
Farage's grog
George Osborne's drugs
Preferred meanings of the word 'gay'.
lortnoc kcab ekaT
Reclaim a sense of place that's not defined by an ever-present grey.
"Make England Great"
With *flower-girls*
"BRING BACK RED SQUIRRELS!"
Well-attended car boot sales in light rain.
We advocate resistance to repression
Cast by apparatus of this quasi-fascist state.

There's no mandate
Free market hubs
Can't smoke in pubs
Fox-hunting cubs
Meaningless jobs (till death)
in the UK.
