Fallen On Hard Times Lyrics

Fallen on hard times - but it feels good to know
That milk and honey's just around the bend
Running on bad lines - we'd better run as we go
Tear up, tear up the overdraft again.

Oh dear Prime Minister - it's all such a mess
Go right ahead and pull the rotten tooth
Oh Mr. President - you've been put to the test
Come clean for once and hit us with the truth.

Looking for sunshine - oh but it's black and it's cold
Yet you say that milk and honey's just round the bend
Giving us a hard time, my friends
Harding us the same line again.

Fallen on hard times - and there's nowhere to hide
Now they've re-possessed the Rolls Royce and the milk
Turning on the peace sign - and it's back to the wood
Soon there will be raised an holy stink.

Somebody wake me. I've been sleeping too long
Oh, I don't have to take this lying down
You can keep your promises. Shove'em where they belong
Don't ask me to the party - won't be around.
