Margret thatcher on tv
Shocked by the deaths
That took place
In Bejing
It seems strange
That she
Should be offended
The same orders
Are given by her

I've said this before now
You said I was childish
And you'll say it now
"Remember what I told you
If they hated me
They will hate you"

[Chorus:]
England's
Not the mythical land
Of Madame George
And roses
It's the home of police
Who kill black boys
On mopeds
And I love my boy
And that's why
I'm leaving
I don't want him
To be aware
That there's any such
Thing as grieving

Young mother down
At Smithfield
5 am looking for food
For her kids
In her arms
She holds three cold babies
And the first word
That they learned
Was "please"

These are dangerous days
To say what you feel
Is to dig your own grave
"Remember what I told you
If you were of the world
They would love you"

[Chorus:]
