Could anyone point me in the direction of a Sid Kipper song - it's about different scales of prejudice and belonging - something like V1 'We hate the neighbors the neighbours hate we'/ V2 we're from Trunch and we don't like the next village/ etc we're from England and we hate the French. I don't think he says 'hate' but you get my drift. Thanks!

Subject: Lyr Add: HATE STORY (Sid Kipper)

That'd be Hate Story; the lyrics are on Sid's site

Hate Story

Hate Story appears on the Sid Kipper album Chained Melody

I hate my brother, I hate him like no other,
For years and years and years I've held that view;
And I don't mind betting, that if you ever met him,
Then you'd hate my brother too.

I hate the neighbours, my malice never wavers,
And my brother always says he shares my view;
And I know that it's true, if you lived where we do,
Then you'd hate the neighbours too.

I hate Knapton, where terrible things happen,
And I know that the neighbours share my view;
And if you lived in Trunch, where we're such a friendly bunch,
Then you'd hate Knapton too.

I hate Norwich, they're all as pale as porridge.
And I know my mates in Knapton share my view;
And if you'd ever been there, and seen the sordid scene there,
Then you'd hate Norwich too.

I hate Suffolk, they're a real pain in the buttocks,
And I know the whole of Norfolk shares my view;
If you saw the disorder, that occurs over the border,
Then you'd hate Suffolk too.

I hate London, they're hard as carborundum,
And all of us provincials share that view;
And if you'd ever heard, the way they say their words,
Then you'd hate London too.

I hate the French, with loathing so intense,
And everyone in England shares my view;
And if you went abroad, you'd see nothing to applaud,
And you would hate the French too.

I hate Yanks, the lot of them are cranks,
And all us Europeans share that view;
And if you ever should, eat what they describe as food,
Then you would hate Yanks too.

I hate you, you're not like me,
But I think I see a way that this could end;
The world will live as one, when the Aliens come,
Then we'll all be united hating them!
