Please don’t mind them
I plead with you, take no notice of them
They, who scream for what they call “rights”,
You can brawl all day
What they’ll do, they already know

I plead please mind them not, 
Those face smiling with you
And urging you to do the dew
Oh! Do not the dew
It’s only a waycut to doom
That, they won’t say

Please send them to Coventry
When they say you can have it free
Know ye I hope, there be no free cheese?
They have more to gain don’t be a fool
Even their words a pythonic venom
Eat it up and you are falling face first to the grave
Believe them and kindle your own snare

Please I say again, mind them not 
For their blood boils hot
When what you are, they are not
Oh! Please again, mind them not
