lyrics

fallen foul
ye wanna know I'll tell ye how-
the circular I did not heed
they shall not pass across the street

Columbo notes she made mistakes
on Monday morn when she made haste
the ruffian she left receipts
for frozen chips and processed meat

the specsavers envelope it gave the game away

what have we come to when you cannot fly-tip
in the garden of your neighbour
ah son I tell you this

big society blues
ah big society blues
it'll never make the news
that we got big society blues

big society blues
ah big society blues
it'll never make the news
that we got big society blues

and now the money's flowing in
it'll trickle down to me somehow
but of the precise formulae
of that I'm sure I cannot say

a greasy pole awaits for me
the ladder lost its rungs ye see
ah you don't know the half of it
ye need to ask who benefits

you could induce a coma
with your bland platitudes
you have never lived it
how could you possibly know

big society blues
ah big society blues
they'll never make the news
them big society blues

big society blues
ah big society blues
they'll never make the news
all of 'em big society blues
