about

Kings and Queens don't make nations; nor Politicians, Generals, Investment Bankers....none of these people. WE make a nation. The People. From time to time it's important we remind them of the fact.

lyrics

From the fire in the furnace
And the dark in the mines
To dawn at the dockyard gates
Queued up in lines
I could sweat at the foundry
Or harvest the land
It was me built this nation
With these two hands

I trawled the ocean
I wove and I spun
I lay the railways
I carried the gun
And I plundered the riches
From far foreign lands
It was me built this nation
With these two hands

These two hands
These two hands
It was me built this nation
With these two hands

Now I paid me taxes
For so I was told
They cared for the helpless
The young and the old
But they bailed out the whorehouse
Cos The Market demands
And left me no work here
For these two hands

These two hands
These two hands
They left me no work here
For these two hands

Now I queue for my Giro
To pay off my loans
I've got nowt in my pocket
And a chill in my bones
But you'll have to explain it
Cos I don't understand
How you rebuild a nation
Without these two hands

These two hands
These two hands
How do you rebuild a nation
Without these two hands?
