Chumbawamba - All the king's men

Tekst piosenki:

And so in the tradition of Manfred the Great
   The people built the glorious vision in his name
   Great Britain they called it, a land for heroes
   A land where no one was starving, a paradise, a garden of Eden
   The garden of Eden, levelled to the ground
   And concreted over, re-built from scratch
   With I.C.I. man-made fibres, they made their paradise out of plastic
   But our world is cracked and it\'s showing through
   The plastic backed cello-taped superglue
   The paper money and the patched up lies
   The cover-up jobs, the fact they try to hide
   That all the king\'s horses and all the king\'s men
   Will never stick our world together again
   With their plastic, sticky-backed, red-taped lies,
   And all the paper money they exchange for our lives
   Think about it, our world, all the ecological catastrophes
   They\'re happening all at once, at the same time now
   Mankind to the rescue, I ask you why?
   To him tomorrow is just another fucking day fucking up the earth
   Filling his fat silver-lined pockets full
   So please listen, dear peoplekind
   See the reason that minkind won\'t save the earth
   Cos there\'s no money in it for him, it\'s not worth his while
   It\'s up to us
   It\'s up to us
   It\'s up to us, each and every one of us
