IRON LADY
Nigel Parsons 9/4/13
Tune: River Lady (as sung by Roger Whittaker)

The day Hell freezes over is the day she'll start to care.
She called herself "The Iron Lady" but her policies weren't fair.
She sacrificed our miners, and our seamen bold and brave.
When they turf over her casket we will dance upon her grave.

South Atlantic water's freezin'
Just two minutes in, life signs are ceasin'
Floatin' away from the ship with my fingers turning blue
Back on the ship the decks are burnin'
Metal to flame & liquid turnin'
All because Thatcher's flexing her muscles and her powers
Sending us out to fight for islands that were never ours.

The pit wheels have stopped turning, from the policies she had
She said that coal made losses, and we really should be glad.
Her place was University, among the caps and gowns
But she chose to go to Parliament, and killed our mining towns.

Sou-th Atlantic water's freezin'
Just two minutes in, life signs are ceasin'
etc.
