lyrics

a troubling time
to be alive
I recall with a tear
my hell on Tyneside...

made to march and fall
into formation
a mere plaything
for a sheik or corporation

overpaid
and underworked
just count your blessings now
ye don't have my luck

off with his head now
harden your hearts
rip up the strawman
tear him apart

those troubling times
I keep inside
I recall with a tear
my hell on Tyneside...

made to march and fall
into formation
a pantomime villain
for an unruly nation

overpaid
and underworked
just count your blessings now
ye don't have my luck

off with his head now
harden your hearts
rip up the strawman
tear him apart
