Food in the food banks
Lives lived in poverty
Street crime on the increase
Lives lived in misery
A choice of evils
Between debt and austerity
Universal credit suffrage
For the poor and the sick and the needy

This is the UK today
The land of hope and glory
This is the UK today
It’s the same old story

The powerful getting richer
While the poor are dying faster
Government debt is on the increase
To pay their rich paymasters
A country in crisis
But only in the poorest places
The burden of responsibility
But only on the poorest faces
