From the country,they're all leaving
Gone to work with Uncle Stephen
In Vancouver or Toronto
Canada,Thats all that I know
Theres no jobs here only schemes
But people haven't lost their dreams
They've just become more realistic
Instead of cake they're eating biscuits

And I'm not having a very nice time
Tryna pay my bills online
I'm weighing up a life of crime

This was once a land of plenty
But it was run by heads with empty
hearts and souls as black as tarmac
They sold loans that we can't pay back
Now everybodies gone to Sidney
or contemplating selling a kidney
To pay the mortgage or clothe the chislers
Forget about Nike, you're getting Sizzlers.

And I'm not having a very nice time
Tryna pay my bills online
I'm tired of skulling economy wine
But I mustn't grumble cos it could be worse
I could be stretched out in the back of a hearse
Or rifling through my grannies purse
Or fighting with a psychiatric nurse

But I'm doing alright,considering the circs
I'm doing alright,with my artistic works

I'm going to Aldis I've three ninety nine
I'm going to Aldis,to spend it on wine...
I'm going to Aldis,they're open til ten
I'm off to Aldis,I'll be there and back before then.

Its looking up yeah its getting better
Cos I just found a brand new sweater
In a skip outside a disco
Fits me great now where should I go?
I might head to California
To seek my fortune making porn
And doing things I might regret
All over the internet

But now I'm having a jolly nice time
I just spent three ninety nine
And now I'm sitting writing comedy rhymes
To entertain and amuse my mind
But theres a moral, and don't you forget
That As bad as it is,it'll get worse yet
Like a broken arm that wouldnt set
When you rang a doctor and they sent out a vet
