lyrics

How much tax do you pay in the pound?
Nothing, boy, nothing
What will you say when the people find out?
Shut it, boy shut it

It's a con! - you take the profits and you sneak them around
And it's wrong - Send them to the Caymans or the Swiss account
Doggone! - You write it off, seal it up, swindle it down
This is how it's done

How many friends do you have at the top?
Network, boy, network
How many boards can you sit on and scoff?
Notwork, boy, notwork

It's a con! - you mess up something that the public should own
And it's wrong! - You get a title and the pay-off's loads
Doggone! - You're just a cushy lickyspittle toad
This is how it's done

How are those shite-hawks staying in jobs?
Contacts, boy, contacts
Lovely golden handshake if they have to run off
Contracts, boy, contracts

You're hired! - you gotta sell to stay ahead of the game
You're fired! - can't feel no empathy, can't feel no shame
You're retired! - the perks and benefits that you retain
This is how it's done

Don't peek behind the curtain - don't knock upon the door
You don't want to see that view - sit still now, obey the law
Don't organise a sit-in - don't march don't fret don't carp
You don't want to see the strings - leave off boy, stop having a laugh
Leave off boy, stop having a laugh
Leave off boy, stop having a laugh
You're whaat??
Shit shuffle shoes
(shoe shining shite)
