If there was no government
If there was no government, wouldn't there be chaos
Everybody running round, setting petrol bombs off ?
And if there was no police force, tell me what you'd do
If thirty thousand rioters came running after you ?
And who would clean the sewers ? Who'd mend my television ?
Wouldn't people lay about without some supervision ?
Who'd drive the fire engines ? Who'd fix my video ?
If there were no prisons, well, where would robbers go ?
And what if I told you to Fuck Off ?
What if there's no army to stop a big invasion ?
Who'd clean the bogs and sweep the floors ? We'd have all immigration.
Who'd pull the pint at the local pub ? Where'd I get my fags ?
Who'd empty out my dustbins ? Would I still get plastic bags ?
If there were no hospitals, and no doctors too,
If I'd broken both my legs, where would I run to ?
If there's no medication, if there were no nurses,
Wouldn't people die a lot ? And who would drive the hearses ?
And what if I told you to Fuck Off?
If there were no butchers shops, what would people eat ?
You'd have everybody starving if they didn't get their meat.
If there was no water, what would people drink ?
Who'd flush away the you-know-what ? But of course MINE never stink.
What about the children ? Who'd teach them in the schools ?
Who'd make the beggers keep in line ? Learn them all the rules ?
Who's tell us whitewash windows ? When to take down doors ?
Tell us make a flask of tea and survive the holocaust ?
