We need our public services
The poor have no voice.
Fall through cracks and crevices.
They need our public services.
Right wingers blame the immigrant
Make me want to shout and rant.
Don’t fight your fellow man
We are all part of the same plan.
Defend our public services
We do have a choice.
Mend the cracks and the crevices
We all need public services.
Fight back against their policies
Greed, arrogance and hate.
Privatise our public services
Bosses’ profits accumulate.
We need our public service,
Our libraries and schools.
Cuts make me nervous
Defend our public service.
There is an alternative
To austerity and cuts.
Strike back, get organised:
Defend our public services.
