Of benefit blues, uurrggh
I can't seem to shift 'em
Feels like we're fish

And the shark's next target
Where is the lifeboat?
I've always done my bit!
All I see are the nets of dictatorship
Go here, and do this - else get nowt and that's it
In Jim Royle's terms
This is "Freedom my a***"
Benefits stink and the process a farce
Leaving me skint, to the point of desperation
I can't pay my way
And that's no exaggeration
Times are real hard and I'm not being funny
But people are stealing coz they have no money
For gas or electric
I'm not being eccentric
This is real, and this is now
Happening in Grimsby
Somehow, some way, someday
I hope this poverty will have done its day
Deprivation leads to aggravation
No envisage or motivation
To work towards a better nation
If some could see what I have seen
Do what I've done, been where I've been
I'd like one day to write a book
Of many, for where the kids are
Growing up to take a look
And learn, how to keep on the straight and narrow
Waste not want not, get the wear out of what you've got
Before you throw away, stay out of debt, and work hard towards a better day in Britain.
