Big Boots

We keep sayin we got moral fervour
Somethin full of love and tenderness
We bin addressin what we find depressin
And now somethin new will save y'all from stress
Well, these suits are made for talkin
And that's just what they'll do
One of these days these suits are gonna
Talk all over you

You keep drivin where you shouldn't be drivin
And you keep skivin when you oughta break sweat (hah)
Well, we just found ya some brand new marchin orders (yeah)
What's left is left but we ain't bin left yet
These truths are made for hawkin
And that's just what they'll do
One of these days these truths are gonna
Hawk all over you

Are you ready, Jags?
Start walkin

 

[September 1999]

From the book Labour Pangs

Tony Blair said "We need to find a new national moral purpose for this new generation"; John Prescott unveiled a new "national walking strategy".
