(To "Bushes and Briars")lyrics by Janet Russell

Through Brexit mud and mire
I lately lost my way
Through Brexit mud and mire
I lately lost my way
All for to gain control of laws
Of borders and of trade

I overheard the people
Cry out in fear and pain
Of food banks, zero hours
And calling out for change
Long time have we been waiting for
The coming of a change.

Sometimes I am uneasy
And troubled in my mind
That the poor are growing poorer
No comfort can they find
But the rich grow rich and richer still
And leave us all behind

But if I should go to the rich
All for to have my say
And if I should go to the rich
The rich they would say “nay”
If I told them they should share their wealth
They’d ne’er hear me again

Through Brexit mud and mire
We lately lost our way
Instead of making changes
In housing, work and pay
Long time have we been waiting for
Fair housing, work and pay

My Adaptation of the above:

Through Brexit mud and mire
I lately lost my way
All for to gain control
Of borders, laws and trade
All for to gain control
Of borders laws and trade

I overheard the people cry
The time has come for change
Long time have we been waiting for
The coming of a change.
Long time have we been waiting for
The coming of a change.

Sometimes I am uneasy
And troubled in my mind
That the poor are growing poorer
No comfort can they find
But the rich grow rich and richer
And leave us all behind

But if I should go to the rich
All for to have my say
If I told them they should share their wealth
They’d ne’er hear me again
If I told them they should share their wealth
They’d ne’er hear me again

Through Brexit mud and mire
We lately lost our way
Instead of making changes
In housing, work and pay
Long time have we been waiting for
Fair housing, work and pay

The No-Funnel Line ( Lyrics by Les Barker, tune: Grey Funnel Line- as performed by Phil Beer)

Don’t mind the wind or the rolling to see
the weary night never worries me
don’t mind the storms, don’t fear the squalls
because we’ve got no ships at all
there’s room below on the no funne line

a chap called Grayling called around
and gave us £13 million
and in his haste he failed to spot
the things we need but haven’t got
there’s room below on the no final line

One day they’ll come, the HGVs
down Through the town and along the quays
and down the ramp all unaware
to find the ferry but it’s not there
there’s room below on the no funnel line

there is I fear no way to wend
our way from Margate to Ostend
Our name may well be Seaborne freight
but without a boat, we are buggered mate
there’s room below on the no funnel line

Oh lord, if dreams were only real
We’d make a fortune from a no-deal
one final toast, please raise your drinks
as Miss Titanic slowly sinks
there’s room below on the no funnel line

and as we slip beneath the sea
the band will play “abide with me”
and barely yards from Blighty’s shore
we’ll sail the no funnel line no more
we’ll sail the no funnel line no more

Phil sings “Margate” but I’m wondering if it is meant to be “Ramsgate”
