THE BIG SOCIETY

Human beings will always strive towards a better tomorrow, despite hardship and the mistakes of governments past and present.

Onwards and upwards!!



'The Big Society'

We gotta make some cuts
But the banks ain't really with us
It's gonna affect us all, or so they say -
The Government's gone bust!
It's enough to make you wither
Harder gettin' over every day

But it's a hard life n' these are hard times
An economy drive in your time n' my time
It's a heartache, livin' on the line
No money to make, a tough time it's our time

But we're the big society, ain't we supposed to be?
We're supermen n' women n' we gotta keep on livin'
Through this crappy bit of history
Oh we're the big society, and we don't wanna be
But we're in it all together so we'll brave the stormy weather
And remember that we liked it, how it used to be...

Mr Cameron's gone nuts, we think he's had enough!
The damage stretches far n' stretches wide
The UK's in a rut, n' push has come to shove
It's hard to make a livin' on the side
No library, no fun, he's got Britain on the run
And Citizen's advice will have to close
The seniors, the young, everyone is being done!
He wants us volunteering in our droves

But it's a hard life n' these are hard times
An economy drive in your time n' my time
It's a heartache, livin' on the line
No money to make, a tough time it's our time

But we're the big society, ain't we supposed to be?
We're supermen n' women n' we gotta keep on livin'
Through this crappy bit of history
Oh we're the big society, but we don't wanna be
Oh we're in it all together so we'll brave the stormy weather
And remember that we liked it, how it used to be...
