lyrics

The girl had told him
Hey we need the money
So he sold hid freedom
For continuity of work
And when thier mortgage
Went through the roof
Thats when he knew
Boy they finally have you

And this England
Its an open prison
And what did you do
To deserve your sentence
You just got born
On a sinking ship
And one day soon
You're gonna sink with it

Now the working man they say
Causes all the problems
And all his wage claims
Are inflationary
But wont the tell us
What we're to do
With the cost of living still rising
Like a helium balloon

And this England
It's an open prison
And what did you do
To deserve your sentence
You just got born
With a plastic spoon in your mouth
And it will choke you
One day soon

The middle classes
In detatched houses
Call us lazy
And ridicule
But from the golf course
The world looks rosy
Without an unpaid bill
To spoil the view
