Punk Britannia, Britannia rules the waves,
England never never never will be slaves
To the master of the medioicre and mundane
Who rehashes the same ideas again and again...
I think it's too late.
The carcass of an exciting, original culture
Is pulled apart by the Syco vulture,
Eager for a further empire expansion,
Perhaps a new wing for the country mansion...
Who cares what it sounds like? As long as they buy it;
It's catchy, infectious and they can't deny it.
Innovation is over-rated anyway -
It doesn't get you Radio One airplay.
