    I’ve had enough of UKIP and Tory cuts.

    A bit of social idealism is a good thing and this is the day for it.

    In the factories and mills, in the shipyards and mines
    We’ve often been told to keep up with the times
    For our skills are not needed, they’ve streamlined the job
    And with sliderule and stopwatch our pride they have robbed

    But when the sky darkens and the prospect is war
    Who’s given a gun and then pushed to the fore
    And expected to die for the land of our birth
    When we’ve never owned one handful of earth?


    I only talked about freedom
    And justice for everyone
    But since the very first word I spoke
    I’ve been looking down the barrel of a gun
    They say I preached revolution
    Let me say in my defence
    That all I did wherever I went
    Was to talk a lot of common sense
