Sir Reg – This Country's For Sale lyrics
Stuck in a place where the hope has been drained from us all
The people in power deceived us and laugh as we fall
I may be proud, but the shame that they've brought on me now
Put families in debt and we're all asking why
We give up our freedom to pay for your crimes

You've wrecked all our lives
We're the ones you've destroyed
Oh this country's for sale
Yeah you've wrecked all our lives
Now you act all surprised
Oh this country's for sale

You run away when it suits ya and shift all the blame
You must think we're stupid
Now nothing can save our good name
Trapped decent people in homes that they struggle to pay
Well they can't leave this place, now try as they may
Forced to remain in this land of decay

A boy lies awake, now he's wondering why
Everyone's fighting and mother she cries
They gave up his future for greed and for lies
They've put up our country for sale

What's wrong with this land, always choosing the goons for a job
They'd sell their own mothers if that meant they'd make a few bob
We need some changes to save all the kids of today
Give them a chance of a life with no debt
Don't look to the past 'cause it's one to forget
