Fallen on hard times --- but it feels good to know
That milk and honey's just around the bend.
Running on bad lines --- we'd better run as we go,
Tear up, tear up the overdraft again.
Oh, dear Prime Minister --- it's all such a mess.
Go right ahead and pull the rotten tooth.
Oh, Mr. President --- you've been put to the test.
Come clean, for once, and hit us with the truth.
Looking for sunshine --- oh but it's black and it's cold
Yet, you say that milk and honey's just round the bend.
Giving us a hard time, my friends
Handing us the same line again.
Fallen on hard times --- and there's nowhere to hide
Now they've re-possessed the Rolls Royce and the mink.
Turning on the peace sign --- and it's back to the wood.
Soon there will be raised a holy stink.
Somebody wake me. I've been sleeping too long.
Oh, I don't have to take this lying down.
You can keep your promises. Shove 'em where they belong.
Don't ask me to the party --- won't be around.
