When one voice rules the nation
Doesn't mean their vision is the clearest
Are falling on deaf ears
They must declare their interests
Is there more to a seat in parliament
And the best of all this bad bunch
Above the sound of ideologies clashing
Who put them into power
Like school books, beds in hospitals
All they get is old men grinding axes
On the things they can rely
The Stock Exchange and the old school tie
All things they justify
God bless the civil service
While we expect democracy
And although our cries get louder
Above the sound of ideologies clashing
