You know what's fun? Writing new lyrics for the WWI soldiers' song Hanging On The Old Barbed Wire (Chumbawumba version)

Here's my attempt:

Scrabbling Around to Pick Up All The Crumbs (Trad/Slade)

If you want to find the banker,
I know where he is,
I know where he is,
I know where he is,
If you want to find the banker,
I know where he is,
He's counting another bonus on his yacht.

I saw him,
I saw him,
Counting another bonus on his yacht,
Counting another bonus on his yacht.

If you want to find the MP,
I know where he is,
I know where he is,
I know where he is,
If you want to find the MP,
I know where he is,
He's building another duck house in the moat.

I saw him,
I saw him,
Building another duck house in the moat,
Building another duck house in the moat.

If you want to find the journo,
I know where he is,
I know where he is,
I know where he is,
If you want to find the journo,
I know where he is,
He's hacking another cellphone on the sly.

I saw him,
I saw him,
Hacking another cellphone on the sly,
(I saw him)
Hacking another cellphone on the sly.

If you want to find the rest of us,
I know where we are,
I know where we are,
I know where we are,
If want to find the rest of us,
I know where we are,
We're scrabbling around to pick up all the crumbs.

You'll see us,
You'll see us,
Scrabbling around to pick up all the crumbs,
Scrabbling around to pick up all the crumbs.
