The world'd be a better place if we shopped at M&S
Ate organic, drove electric, bought clothes from John Lewis
If we were all members of the PTA, gym and National Trust
Wore a face covering, dined out weekly in fancy gastro pubs
Cultured liberal values you are sure that you are right
Closeted conservatives who've really lost the fight
[Can't we all just play by the rules?]
You think you're standing tall, when you're lying on your back
Nothing left to give, you've got an empty sack
You say the right things, it's action that you lack
Full of good intent but it's just an empty sack
No single use plastics, buying milk from source
Established compost bin and a weekly farm veg box
Cutting your own hair, making okay homemade cheese
Clapping on your doorstep so everyone can see
Middle-class delusions that are merely there for show
Cosetted by your comforts you feed the status quo
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up
[Well that's not very nice]
You think you're standing tall, when you're lying on your back
Nothing left to give, you've got an empty sack
You say the right things, it's action that you lack
Full of good intent but it's just an empty sack
Trying to converse with the lady on the till
Rounding up your change, always helping at the school
Giving a case of Christmas ale to the blokes on the bins
Reading The Guardian with a knowing nodding grin
Your self-regarding smugness is a mental moral trick
Those who don't think just like you are either bad or thick
[You just don't realise do you?]
You think you're standing tall, when you're lying on your back
Nothing left to give, you've got an empty sack
Full of good intent - it's just an empty sack
