"Work Or Riot?" as written by and Boyce/brennan/fitzsimons/whale/pryor....
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

[Chorus:]
This generation won't keep quiet
Work, work, Work or Riot
The time is now to unite,
Work, work, work or Riot
The 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?
