There`s a gang I`ve just joined
There`s a gang I`ve just joined
Three million strong you`d agree
Four million strong you`d agree
Enrollment was easy, so easy
Getting out proves to be the difficulty

From Land`s End to John O`Groats
From Land`s End to John O`Groats
They are making ends meet
Mending holes in their coat
Fasting and feasting on bread and margarine
Burning dreams build upon buried hopes

United Kingdom - you`d better ring them
You`ve a solution - you better bring them
United Kingdom - United Kingdom
You`ve a solution - you better bring them

Opportunity, I guess they all came and went
Finding it hard
Finding the rent you`ll find it funny
With your finger running down
Situations vacant
In school he was an athlete
Now he`s not so self-assured
"After all of these O-levels is this my reward?"
There`s a silent majority, that`s seen and
 never heard from Charles I, Charles II
To Charles III

United Kingdom - you`d better ring them
You`ve a solution - you better bring them
United Kingdom - United Kingdom

This busted, rusted, upper-crusted
Bankrupted done and dusted
No-man-to-be-trusted United Kingdom

Proud to stand beneath the Union Jack?
Happy dealing up a no ace pack?
Polishing black boots
Priming the riot squad
There go I but for the grace of God
Covering up the agony with mindless entertainment
You`ll be happy when they`re ripping up the pavement
Bringing down the axe on steelworks and foundries
Someone said love knows no boundaries
Close your eyes and think of England
Lie back and think of her

United Kingdom - you better ring them
You`ve a solution - you better bring them
