We Three Kings

Submitted by Janine on 29 August 2014 at 00:00

A variation on a festive favourite - to the tune of We Three Kings Of Orient Are:

We three kings of austerity be
IDS, Gideon and David C
Finding ways
To make you pay
For capitalism's misanthropy

Oh-oh
Cuts by daytime, cuts by night
Cuts that hurt and cuts that bite
It's so thrilling
To save each shilling
It truly is a lovely sight

If you're rich we're on your side
Take your stash and carefully hide
Each occasion
Of tax evasion
Makes us feel all warm inside

Oh-oh
Feed the rich and starve the poor
Send that scrounger from our door
Raise a toast
To those with the most
What do you think we're in government for?
