about

The Tories tell us they are the party of the people and we're all in it together, but we all know that's BULLSHIT!

lyrics

Happy Families

We're all in this together
Or so the Tories say
But we all know that's bullshit
The capitalist way

They tell us that we're lucky
And others are worse off
The ninety-nine percenters
Privileged Eton Toff's
Daddy's little rich boys
Their top hats held aloft

We're all in this together
They want us to believe
But look a little closer
They're just a bunch of thieves

They're happy when we take it
Believing what they say
But ain't it time you woke up
There is a better way

The time is right to kick back
The time has come to change
Look forward to tomorrow
See a brighter day
Stop listening to their fiction
Stop hearing what they say

He's a member of parliament
He's a multimillionaire
He's never done a hard days graft
Do you really think that's fair

He's a Government minister
He tells you what do
He sets the level of tax you pay
But does he pay his too?

He's a wealthy businessman
He thinks you're on the skive
But you won't see him paying bedroom tax
Or living in a dive

All his funds are hidden away
In tax free offshore banks
He won't care care if you don't have
A decent equal chance
Living lives of luxury
The ruling upper class
But we'd soon end there well planned plot
If we all rose up en masse

We're all in this together
Or so the Tories say
But we all know that's bullshit
Their Capitalist ways

We're all in this together
They want us to believe
We're all in this together
Happy families

We're all in this together
They want us to believe
We're all in this together
Happy families
