Bugger The Bankers

Video By The Austerity Allstars

When I was a lass I was proud of my class, like my father and mother before me
They taught me to fight for my civil rights, but itís always the same old story Ė
The rich reign supreme while the poor can but dream under Labour or Liberal or Tory
And I say -
Bugger the bankers and politicians, bugger the bureaucrats too

Bugger The Bankers - Lyrics

When I was a lass I was proud of my class, like my father and mother before me
They taught me to fight for my civil rights, but itís always the same old story Ė
The rich reign supreme while the poor can but dream under Labour or Liberal or Tory
And I say -
Bugger the bankers and politicians, bugger the bureaucrats too
Bugger the buggers who make up the rules
And if you're one of them - bugger you
And if you're one of them - bugger you

The system is bent and the moneyís all spent, weíre badgered from every direction
The workers get taxed while the wealthy relax with nary a momentís reflection
Where thereís brass, thereís muck and they donít give an arse
ĎCos weíre programmed against insurrection
And I say -
Bugger the bankers and politicians, bugger the bureaucrats too
Bugger the buggers who make up the rules
And if you're one of them - bugger you
And if you're one of them - bugger you

DANCE BREAK

Now all you good people with passion to vent, donít give up the struggle for justice
But Iíve done my time on the protestersí line and these days I show my dissent
By loitering within my tent
And I say -
Bugger the bankers and politicians, bugger the bureaucrats too
Bugger the buggers who make up the rules
And if you're one of them - bugger you
And if you're one of them - bugger you, oh

Bugger the bankers and politicians, bugger the bureaucrats too
Bugger the buggers who make up the rules
And if you're one of them - bugger you
And if you're one of them - bugger you
And if you're one of them - bugger you
