lyrics

Our country's so unequal, we still bow down to the Queen
We'd love to ditch the Royals and their elitist regime
They're too popular to topple, their reign goes on and on
And if that wasn't bad enough the Queen owns all the swans

So we'll nationalise the swans
Free them from her reign
If they can break your arm
Then we can break their chains
Then we'll turn them on the Queen
An army made of swans
And we'll give them small guitars
And teach them protest songs

And they'll go
Honk honk honk honk honk
Honk honk free the people
Honk honk honk honk honk
Honk honk give us more bread

Emancipate the swans
They'll emancipate us too
The Swan Liberation Army
Will make all our dreams come true
They'll save the NHS
And bring back free school meals
Then they'll save BHS
With their feathery leftwing zeal

But the swans have gone fucking mad
And everything's gone wrong
They're honking and biting and hissing and fucking
And everything's covered in swans
The power's gone to their heads
And their heads are really small
We need actual social reform
Instead we've got angry swans

And they go
Honk honk honk honk honk
Honk honk we're in charge now
Honk honk honk honk honk
Honk honk where's my bread?

[Swan noises and shouting about Swans]

SWANS.
