I don't wanna be no traitor to the cause
But England is a luxury not many can afford
There's people going under, it's getting out of hand
Whatever happened to our, our green and pleasant land?

It turned into a wilderness, it turned into a third world country
Most people ain't getting what they pay for
Some people gettin' more than they should be
I know, I know, I'm an alien but what are you gonna do
I wanna live in England but it gets to you
It gets to you, it gets to you, it gets to you

I really don't know why England's such a ripoff
It's crazy but it's true
I really don't know why, England wants to ripoff you
England wants to ripoff you, England wants to ripoff you

What do you do when you find out?
Where do you go if you leave?
There's no place like home, that's what they say
And that's what you always believed

Someday you might win the lottery
Someday you might win the pools
But that's all you've got, that's all you've got to live for, to live for
That's all you've got, that's all you've got to live for, to live for, yeah

To be or not to be? That's the question
Oh, what's it gonna be?
I'd love to live in England but it gets to me
It gets to me, it gets to me, yeah, it gets to me

I really don't know why, England's such a ripoff
It's crazy, but it's true
I really don't know why, England wants to ripoff you
England wants to ripoff you, England wants to ripoff you

I really don't know why, England's such a ripoff
It's crazy, but it's true
Oh, I really don't know why, England wants to ripoff
England wants to ripoff, England wants to ripoff
England wants to ripoff, England wants to ripoff you
And you and you and you and you and you and you and you
And you and you and you and you and you and you and you

And thanks to you
And thanks to you
And thanks to you
