Singalong to ‘Bugger the bankers and politicians too’

bankersA new modern day classic to add to our heritage of angry protest songs! The Austerity Allstars bring you ‘Bugger the bankers’, an easy singalong ditty, not unlike dear old Chumbawamba in their acoustic english rebel folk song phase, but with more knees-up & gusto. Ideal for picket, march, bank occupation, pub, footie match, wherever!

Bugger The Bankers
When I was a lass I was proud of my class, like my father and mother before me
They taught me to fight for my civil rights, but it’s always the same old story –
The rich reign supreme while the poor can but dream under Labour or Liberal or Tory
And I say –
Bugger the bankers and politicians, bugger the bureaucrats too
Bugger the buggers who make up the rules
And if you’re one of them – bugger you
And if you’re one of them – bugger you

The system is bent and the money’s all spent, we’re badgered from every direction
The workers get taxed while the wealthy relax with nary a moment’s reflection
Where there’s brass, there’s muck and they don’t give an arse
‘Cos we’re programmed against insurrection
And I say –
Bugger the bankers and politicians, bugger the bureaucrats too
Bugger the buggers who make up the rules
And if you’re one of them – bugger you
And if you’re one of them – bugger you

DANCE BREAK

Now all you good people with passion to vent, don’t give up the struggle for justice
But I’ve done my time on the protesters’ line and these days I show my dissent
By loitering within my tent
And I say –
Bugger the bankers and politicians, bugger the bureaucrats too
Bugger the buggers who make up the rules
And if you’re one of them – bugger you
And if you’re one of them – bugger you, oh

Bugger the bankers and politicians, bugger the bureaucrats too
Bugger the buggers who make up the rules
And if you’re one of them – bugger you
And if you’re one of them – bugger you
And if you’re one of them – bugger you
