Lyrics

I bet you never thought you'd regret a BJ
But now you're wishing you could request the replay
You're on your knees begging please to the DJ
Rewind my selector rewind!

I don't really wanna send this country back to the stone age
I just want to shake things up a little
in a cold rage
Sick of being trapped in poverty into my old age
Rewind my selector rewind

Now we got another bunch of idiot millionaires
We've seen it all before but still they catch us unawares
Shout power to the people like they really don't care
but the truth is that they don't
And they won't so beware

Now they've all got short positions riding on a weak pound
So they'll keep making money as they drive it through the ground
And as the big roulette wheel keeps on spinning us around
We'll all be singing rule Britannia, rule Britannia

Britannia rules the waves
As they set the sails ablaze
And then sink beneath the waves
The crowd cries Fool Britannia, Fool Britannia yea

Now what you were told was a big fat lie
but everybody knows big boys don’t cry
so now you gotta stick to the script
and hope you don’t get picked up for the porky pie
Anyway you gotta protect your damn pride
pick one side
fight to the death that’s right
Everybody take two steps inside
Where you gonna go now left or right

left or right left or right it’s alright
take all the time you need we got all night long
Everybody wants to belong
so you pick out a song and start singing along
now maybe I’m singing it wrong
or maybe you’re singing it right
but lately I feel like we’re living lie
and you never know if you don’t give it a try

I’m all up for taking back control
but baby you know the story you’re sold
is never what you get at all
We’re gonna reap just what we sow,
empowering bigots when will you get it this situation’s a setup yeah

There's more than two sides to a story
And maybe you were right to ignore me
But I say what I see so don't bore me
With all your rule Britannia, rule Britannia
Britannia rules the waves!
As we set the sails ablaze
And then sink beneath the waves
The crowd cries
Fool Britannia
Fool Britannia Yeah.


I feel like we’ve been here before my friends
So let’s not go and open that door again
Cos everybody knows where it leads
are we too blind to see
or just scared to believe it
And when it’s all gone
They’ll be saying it was always so
now maybe we can all move on
from all this rule Britannia rule Britannia
Britannia rules the waves
As we set the sails ablaze
And then sink beneath the waves
The crowd cries
Fool Britannia
Fool Britannia
Britannia rules the waves
Britannia rules the waves
The crowd cries
Fool Britannia
Fool Britannia
