Out! Out! Out!
We will laugh the day that Thatcher dies,
Even though we know it’s not right,
We will dance and sing all night.
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
Long enough to savor
That’s when they finally put you in the ground
I’ll stand on your grave and tramp the dirt down
Lets kick out the Tories
the rulers of this land
for they are the enemies
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.
It’s a party, It’s a party… yes, yes, yes!
