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
