This is Breadline Britain
This free and promised
Land
Where the rich don't give a damn
Poeple
Getting hungry and people getting poor
People getting
Destitute and more
This is Breadline Britain
Oh
You've got to understand
Where evil's in
Command
Where money buys onli pipedreams
And a
Worker's life is damned
Democracy and freedom are

A
Far off foreign land.
Where the sick don't
Stand a chance
Where fascism leads a new dance
Where
They'd privatise your mother
If given half a
Chance
This is Breadline Britain
You've got to make
A stand
Breadline, breadline, breadline
Britain
Breadline breadline, breadline Britain
This free
And promised land
