Oi Polloi – We Don't Need Them lyrics

Opened the paper what did I see?
A load of complete rubbish staring out at me
"Oi man killed" so the headline read
Said one of Oi Polloi had wound up dead
Well we all knew that that wasn't true
Cause we're still here playing Oi! Oi! Music for you
No one of us had wound up dead
Hear our Oi! Oi! Music pounding through your head

We don't need them - we don't need them
We don't need them - don't need to read them
We don't need them - so don't believe them

Oi! Is dead so the music press say
They seem to think that we'll all just fade away
Seem to think that Oi! Is over and done
But I'm telling you straight we've only just begun
There's thousands of folk like me and you
We're still here and we're still true
They can try to ignore us or smear us with lies
But we'll fight on and our spirit never dies

The papers have always got it wrong
They try to deceive they lie and they con
Just a form of brainwashing by the ruling elite
So what you read you shouldn't always believe
But there's alternatives in the music scene
Who needs rags like "Sounds" when we've got our own zines?
Yes we've got our own press doing things our own way
And as for rags like "Sounds" I want to hear you all say:
