The Candidates Find Common Ground Lyrics

"Full employment!
Slave labour and schemes!"
"An unemployed workforce
The capitalist's dream!"
"But let's keep Britain working
Either way we must keep Britain working"
"Conventional weapons
To kill people nicely!"
"Nuclear weapons
To keep the peace!"
"But weapons definitely
Either way we must defend ourselves"
"Nationalism
With one big boss!"
"No, privatisation
With lots of little bosses!"
"But someone in control of course
Either way there must be someone giving orders"
A toast to democracy
The prison guard of this society
Sides in the voting game
Disappear into the same machine...
A toast!
To US bases and nuclear weapons
To stopping pickets, pulling down fences
To British troops in Northern Ireland
To the wonderful victory in the Falklands
To the plastic bullet and the riot police
To the UDM and the TUC
To isolating gays and to law and order
To richer bosses and poorer workers
To longer hours and ess pay
To the courts (for those we get in the way)
To the beating of people who step out of line
To the use of troops to break a strike
To the expulsion of extremists
To political witch hunts
To repatriation and to benefit cuts
To peaceful settlements
And no strike agreements
To authority, to power, to governments
To the annual rise in the MP's wage
To vested interests, to privilege
To the party who wins the next election
By definition a victory to capitalism!
The End
