Bankers Song (Oh we do like to demonise
tune: We do like to be beside the seaside, lyrics Bridget Walker
1. Oh, we do like to demonise the bankers,
Oh, we do like to criticise the banks,
Oh we do like to sing how they are wrong, wrong, wrong,
and pour scorn on them in our song, song, song.
But it's not just enough to blame the bankers
and hold up to shame their grubby pranks,
though they're maggots, though they’re cankers,
in the ship of state, the bankers
are just one rotten, stinking plank.
2. For we all know the ship of state is
Sabotaged by the public sector cuts.
Let us all sing loudly in our song, song, song
Cutting jobs and services is wrong, wrong, wrong.
It’s the fat cats not the state that should be shrinking,
Are there any politicians with the guts,
To start thinking, stop the winking
Over fraud, expose the stinking
Compromises of ifs and buts?
3. For we all know we need a revolution
which we all are invited to arrange.
Let us all sing proudly in our song, song, song
That the time has come to right each wrong, wrong, wrong
Yes, we all know we need a revolution,
We all know the time has come for change,
Be part of the solution,
Work for revolution,
Come and join us to fight (/march) for change.
