‘Your Company Needs You’

Roy:           There’s a server in your office, and software at your chair,
                   Your cards are on the table. It’s not that we don’t care.
                   You’ve really been no trouble, but just in case you are,
                   Computers don’t join Unions. Would you leave the company car.

                   You’re sure to find a job,
HR officer:  But an altercation years ago is down in his records
                   And he’ll probably never know.
Roy:           Computers don’t forget, and he’ll never clear his name.
HR officer: A blacklist that could mean that he’ll never work again.

Roy:            So it’s, Congratulations Sam, you’ve been especially selected,
                   Congratulations, your company needs you on the dole.
HR officer:  Congratulations Sam, you’ve been especially selected,
                   Congratulations, your company needs you on the dole.

Worker1:    Supply and demand, the difference is deep,
Worker2:    And many jobless people means the labour is cheap.
Worker3:    That keeps the profits rising, but you can’t expect a share.
Worker4:    You see them in their massive mansions and they say there’s none to spare.

Roy:            So it’s, Congratulations Sam, you’ve been especially selected,
                   Britain can be Great again if you just play your role.
HR officer:  Private sector needs incentive, so your pay’s been redirected.
                   We’ve got to feed the rich, your country needs you on the dole.

All:              So it’s, Congratulations Sam, you’ve been especially selected,
                   Congratulations, your company needs you on the dole.
                   Congratulations Sam, you’ve been especially selected,
                   Congratulations, your country needs you on the dole.
