The winter of discontent's nearing
Thatchers got trouble with her hearing
The voices of many are going unheard
I'd try to laugh if it wasn't absurd

 This generation won't keep quiet
 Work, work, work or riot
 The time is now to unite
 Work, work, work or riot

The old generation sit cold and die
Feed their facts and live the lie
In the papers everyday
So many rebels being put away
Have you ever heard punk on radio?
Have you ever been to a skinhead show?
No escape for the people like you
Did that happen in your time too?
