How sad are we?
And how sad have we been?
We'll let you know, we'll let you know
Oh, but only if you're really interested

You wonder how
We've stayed alive till now
We'll let you know, we'll let you know
Oh, but only if you're really interested

We're all smiles
Then honest, I swear it's the turnstiles
That make us hostile


We will descend
On anyone unable to defend


And the songs we sing
They're not supposed to mean a thing


We may seem cold, or we may even be
The most depressing people you've ever known
At heart, what's left, of course we know

That we are the last truly British people you'll ever know
We are the last truly British people
That you wouldn't want to know [Incomprehensible]
