Politicians and bankers
So sick and fucken tired of listening to their lies
Of promises they cannot keep to keep their votes alive
Of calling this a credit crunch as we plunge into recession
Of rich fat cats making a killing then asking for concessions

Of high street banks who profits numbered in billions
Suddenly on the brink and drag the world in with them
To keep the company’s profits up the move the jobs offshore
And now the middle classes are suddenly fuel poor

Of companies that once belonged to the nation
Government sold them back to us now share shock sensation
And CEO’s who fucked up bad go with a million golden smiles
Huge pensions for life while have to strive just to survive

So sick and fucken tired of listening to their lies
Of promises they cannot keep to keep their votes alive
Of calling this a credit crunch as we plunge into recession
Of rich fat cats making a killing then asking for concessions

150% mortgages with no chance of paying back
House prices through the roof now the system starts to crack
You built your house of cards up on some shifting sands
With toxic debt you’re up to your neck and sinking out of sight

Rich Tory peers confirm all out fears that they are out of touch
With “So called recession” “Never had it so good” and “an excuse for poor to breed”
We take the brunt of austerity cuts with job losses and benefits cuts
They live off our work it’s them that are shirks its time to put a stop

So sick and fucken tired of listening to their lies
Of promises they cannot keep to keep their votes alive
Of calling this a credit crunch as we plunge into recession
Of rich fat cats making a killing then asking for concessions
