Stuck with the yellow and blue

Well I don’t know how we got this blight,
No one won on election night,
I’m so scared in case I fall down the stairs,
‘Cause they’re closing our beloved NHS,
Cowards to the left of them,
Racists to the right, here I am,
Stuck with the yellow and blue.

Yes I’m stuck with the yellow and blue,
And it seems there’s not a thing I can do,
It’s so hard to see smug grins on their face,
Lost control, Britain’s all over the place,
Cowards to the left of them,
Racists to the right, here I am,
Stuck with the yellow and blue.

They say if you started out with nothing,
You can become a self made man,
But you’ll find out they’re all lyin’,
They’ll slap you in the face and say,
Tuition fees…. tuition fees…..

Trying to make some sense of it all,
But I can see it makes no sense at all,
Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor?
‘Cause I can’t afford my rent no more,
Cowards to the left of them,
Racists to the right, here I am,
Stuck with the yellow and blue.

Well you started out with nothing,
And still they want to cut your funds,
And LibDems, they all come crawlin,
Stab you in the back and say,
Please…. Please…..

Well I don’t know how we got this blight,
No one won on election night,
I’m so scared in case I fall on my face,
Cause no one gets the Sick these days,
Cowards to the left of them,
Racists to the right, here I am,
Stuck with the yellow and blue,
Yes I’m stuck with the yellow and blue,
Stuck with the yellow and blue.

    Brilliant! I’ve had a semi-formed remix of “what’s new pussycat” called “cut you Cameron” (or the non-radio edit “fuck you Cameron” rattling around my noggin for a while, but I can’t quite get it all to fit.

    “Cameron, Cameron we’ve got voices
    and we’ll make choices
    to bury you
    Cos you suck up to
    Your rich & corrupt pals

    Cameron, Cameron we know you,
    Yes we do
    You’ve sold our hospitals & schools

    (it’s time we)
    Cut you Cameron, Woah-oo-oah-oo-ah oooh-oah
    Cut you Cameron, Woah-oo-oah-oo-ah oooh-oah

    Cameron, Cameron
    you’re lies are Chilling
    And we’re so willing
    To get shot of you
    We won’t forgive you
    For selling our NHS

    Cameron, Cameron we’ll end you
    Yes we will
    You and your corrupt lies

    (it’s time we)
    Cut you Cameron, Woah-oo-oah-oo-ah oooh-oah
    Cut you Cameron, Woah-oo-oah-oo-ah oooh-oah

    Cameron, Cameron you’re pernicious
    And if our wishes
    Can all come true
    We’ll soon be burying
    Your toxic NeoCons

    Cameron, Cameron we loathe you
    Yes we do

    You and NeoCon lies
    woah-oo-oah-oo-oah oo-oah

    You and old school ties
    woah-oo-oah-oo-oah oo-oah

    You and your impoverishing lies
    woah-oo-oah-oo-oah oo-oah”

      Ha! Only problem is the radio edit’s at least as likely to get banned as the non-radio 🙂 I find once my brain’s made the kind of connection yours has between a song & a situation it’s best to not think about it & just let it rattle around until the words just pop out. Austerity just sat in my head for weeks & then wrote itself when it was ready. I hope you like What’s new pussycat though – the downside to my way of doing it is that the background hum of the original song can get really annoying, like an app that’s constantly running!
