In The Present Day

Gambles have been taken
Time to check your lifestyle bets
On how long it will be before
The full severity besets

Levity will not prevail
Many vacuums will ensue
As deals for meals and foreign wheels
Disappear and turn the screw

Remember all those years ago
How happy men ran off to war
Sang jovial songs to please the throngs
Soon were shattered to the core

Now we face the world out there
As striking wealth occurs elsewhere
We volunteered to be alone
Where we might gain a greater share

Oh we of British little voice
Banging drums and waving flags
We are us on board our tour E-Bus
Stifled by our self-made snags
