Jimmy Somerville – Breadline Britain lyrics

This is Breadline Britain
This free and promised land
Where the rich don't give a damn
People getting hungry and people
Getting poor
People getting destitute and more
This is Breadline Britain

Oh you've got to understand
Where evil's in command
Where money buys only pipedreams
And a worker's life is damned
Democracy and freedom are a
Far off foreign land

Where the sick don't stand a chance
Where fascism leads a new dance
Where they'd privatise your mother
If given half a chance
This is Breadline Britain
You've got to make a stand

Breadline, breadline, breadline Britain
Breadline, breadline, breadline Britain
This free and promised land
