Heffner - The Day That Thatcher Dies

Even though we know it's not right,
We will dance and sing all night.
Elvis Costello - Tramp the Dirt Down
Oh I'll be a good boy, I'm trying so hard to behave
Because there's one thing I know, I'd like to live

That's when they finally put you in the ground
I'll stand on your grave and tramp the dirt down
Newtown Neurotics - Kick out the Tories

of the British working man
and it shows, while that bastard is in unemployment grows
and it shows, in hospitals, factories and the schools that they've closed.
