lyrics

Well we're sleeping our way right through the twenty first century
And the more things change, the more they stay the same
Charismatic politicians are accused of perjury
And the more things change, the more they stay the same
The councils are corrupt and the government as well
And the more things change, the more they stay the same
They'll get their just desserts in Heaven, or possibly in Hell
And the more things change, the more they stay the same

And the dole queue's getting longer as tensions start to rise
Social problems piling up before our very eyes
But you've got to grin and bear it 'cos you've got to play their game
And the more things change, the more they stay the same

People say that immigrants are stealing all our jobs
And the more things change, the more they stay the same
But the best solution they can find is to form an angry mob
And the more things change, the more they stay the same
The immigrant should not be blamed for this governmental mess
And the more things change, the more they stay the same
And as long as we hate each other, we never can progress
And the more things change, the more they stay the same

And the dole queue's getting longer as tensions start to rise
Social problems piling up before our very eyes
But you've got to grin and bear it 'cos you've got to play their game
And the more things change, the more they stay the same

We've got guns and we've got weapons and we'll use them if we must
And the more things change, the more they stay the same
To stamp out terrorism, in the USA we trust
And the more things change, the more they stay the same
Because we know who's right and wrong and we're perfectly justified
And the more things change, the more they stay the same
Who cares if a suspect's guilty, so long as we're sure he died?
And the more things change, the more they stay the same

And the death toll's getting higher as tensions start to rise
Social problems piling up before our very eyes
But you've got to grin and bear it 'cos you've got to play their game
And the more things change, the more they stay the same
