Fallen on hard times, but it feels good to know
That milk and honey's just around the bend
Running on bad lines we'd better run as we go
Tear up, tear up the overdraft again

Oh, dear Prime Minister, it's all such a mess
Go right ahead and pull the rotten tooth
Oh, Mr. President, you've been put to the test
Come clean for once and hit us with the truth

Looking for sunshine, oh, but it's black and it's cold
Yet, you say that milk and honey's just round the bend
Giving us a hard time, my friends
Handing us the same line again

Fallen on hard times and there's nowhere to hide
Now they've re-possessed the Rolls Royce and the mink
Turning on the peace sign and it's back to the wood
Soon there will be raised a holy stink

Somebody wake me I've been sleeping too long
Oh, I don't have to take this lying down
You can keep your promises shove `em where they belong
Don't ask me to the party won't be around

Looking for sunshine, oh, but it's black and it's cold
Yet, you say that milk and honey's just round the bend
Giving us a hard time, my friends
Handing us the same line again

Fallen on hard times
We're fallen on hard times
Oh, fallen on hard times
I do read between the lines
Oh, when you're fallen on hard times
