‎“Troppe mani in troppe tasche, poche invece sui cuori…”, una desolata descrizione ‎dell’impoverimento della gente nella “perfida Albione” al tempo della perfida “Lady di Ferro”.‎
E ce n’è anche per la corte reale: “… chiedendo l’obolo alla regina, visto che la sua borsa è così ‎piena da scoppiare…”‎
‎“God save the Queen, the fascist regime”, cantava qualcun altro qualche anno prima degli ‎Housemartins…‎
Too many florence nightingales
Not enough robin hoods
Too many halos not enough heroes
Coming up with the goods
So you though youd like to change the world
Decided to stage a jumble sale
For the poor, for the poor

Its a waste of time if you know what they mean
Try shaking a box in front of the queen
cause her purse is fat and bursting at the seams
Its a waste of time if you know what they mean

Too many hands in too many pockets
Not enough hands on hearts
Too many ready to call it a day
Before the day starts

So you thought youd like to see them healed
Got blue peter to stage an appeal
For the poor, for the poor

Its a waste of time if you know what they mean
Try shaking a box in front of the queen
cause her purse is fat and bursting at the seams
Its a waste of time if you know what they mean

Flag day, flag day, flag day
