**** all that we've got to get on with these
There's too many home fires burning
So **** all that

Lose job
Get away
Make hay
Need fix
Clickity click
Oh no

Make 'em cry.
Make 'em pay.
Make 'em feel ok.
Not nah John
Hollywood waits at the end of the rainbow.
As long as the kids go?
Got to get on with the show.
Hang on John we've got to get on with this.
But it fits on here like
We'll go and get pissed.
I've got to get on with this.
Hold on John
I used to read books but
Or some other abuse

Got to compete with the wily Japanese.
Got to bring the Russian Bear to his knees.
Maybe the Swedes.
Now let's go and show these.
And wouldn't Maggie be pleased?

s'il vous plait ou est le bar
Oi, where's the ****ing bar John?
Oh! Rule Britannia! Britannia rules the day
Go, Maggie!
