Subject: BILLIONS OR MORE
From: VirginiaTam

I need to get more sleep. What I started in the wee hours of the mornings to the tune of Thousands or More. Amendments and suggestions welcome. I'll never sing it but other are welcome to if they dare.


BILLIONS OR MORE

The queue at the bank grows more glum and more grey
Since they've learned a new trick
To drive borrowers away

borrowers away, borrowers away
borrowers away
since they've learned a new trick
to drive borrowers away

If you ask them for credit you'll find they give you none
But the bankers got a bonus for the good job they done

good job they done, good job they done good job they done
but the bankers got a bonus for the good job they done

Rob Peston he wakes us each day
with news so dire
in a clipped halting voice says we're
deep in the mire

deep in the mire. deep in the mire
deep in the mire
in a clipped halting voice says we're
deep in the mire

Now I work at 3 jobs to keep roof over head
And the day I retire is the day you find me dead

find me dea, find me dead
find me dead
and the day I retire is the day you find me dead

So the bankers are wealthy, but the banks they are poor
would they be any better if they had billions or more

billions or more, billions or more
billions or more
would they be any better if they had
billions or more

The kids education they must pay for themselves,
Now you need a degree to stack Sainsbury's shelves..

The old and the tired have to work till they fall
For the pension they payed for is pissed up the wall

Pissed up the wall, pissed up the wall,
Pissed up the wall,
The grasping old bastards have taken it all.

Oi Tam, you started it.

Although they are rich and although we are poor,
They don't like paying tax, because that's what we're for,
Rolls at the door,
Big 4x4,
Still insecure,
They need all they've got, so we're glad to pay more.

Thousands Or More, for those who haven't come across it before, is a Copper Family song.
