about

It's an old-fashioned political rant!

lyrics

Happy

Well I hope you're happy now that everybody's sad.
You've used your power and taken everything we had.
And there's always reasons to make what you do feel right.
Well I hope you're happy and you sleep at night.

All of our days were taken by your hand -
Are you happy now?

I hope you're happy you've got everything you need.
With your dreams of Empire and the Daily Mail to believe
As you cast down judgement on the 'scoundrels' and the 'cheats'
Who are less than numbers on the balance sheet

Who gave you ownership of words
Like what is 'fair' and what is 'right'?
Politicians of the playground rule our televisions as we fight.
We fight amongst ourselves
While the country goes to hell.

I hope you're happy now that you have got your way.
We're all in this together as long as we do what you say.
Damn our neighbours for their failings and never question government.
Yes Britain's getting greater if you're in the one percent.

Are you happy?
