There`s a gang I`ve just joined
There`s a gang I`ve just joined
Three million strong you`d agree
Four million strong you`d agree
Enrollment was easy, so easy
Getting out proves to be the difficulty

From Land`s End to John O`Groats
From Land`s End to John O`Groats
They are making ends meet
Mending holes in their coat
Fasting and feasting on bread and margarine
Burning dreams build upon buried hopes

United Kingdom - you`d better ring them
