2020
We saw the panic in their eyes
As they locked the country down
Millions of people
Forced to stay inside the house

The kids couldn't go to school
Most of us couldn't go to work
Society was crumbling
And things were only getting worse

All the doctors and the nurses
Made their final plea
They said you've got to heed the warnings
That you see on your TV

The hospitals will collapse
Many thousands will die
This is not a rehearsal
Things are serious this time

But no matter what happens
Or where the road might lead
Raise a glass to the ones on the front line
In our time of need
While the bankers and landlords
Will hide away in shame
Working class people will save the world again

Everyone was scared
They knew the bills would still arrive
Anxiety increasing
As people struggle to survive
And the worst is yet to come
The death toll soon will shock us all
Still half a million people
Stand up and answer to the call

But no matter what happens
Or where the road might lead
Raise a glass to the ones on the front line
In our time of need
While the bankers and landlords
Will hide away in shame
Working class people will save the world again

But no matter what happens
Or where the road might lead
Raise a glass to the ones on the front line
In our time of need
While the bankers and landlords
Will hide away in shame
Working class people will save the world again

Working class people will save the world again
