Fallen on hard times but it feels good to know,
that milk and honey's just around the bend.
Running on bad lines we'd better run as we go,
Tear up, tear up the overdraft again.

Oh, dear Prime Minister it's all such a mess.
Go right ahead and pull the rotten tooth.
Oh, Mr. President you've been put to the test.
Come clean, for once, and hit us with the truth.

Looking for sunshine oh but it's black and it's cold
Yet, you say that milk and honey's just round the bend.
Giving us a hard time, my friends
handing us the same line again.
