Two's company, Three's a crowd
Any more and it's getting out of hand
There must be order we must be organised
Systems of supply and demand
We need a structure to carry on
What we need is a system of control
Trouble was the trouble is
There's lots in agreement but few in the know

Red lobby, blue lobby, red lobby, blue lobby
Swings to the left, swings to the right
Till there's a balance, a balance of might, 'cos it
It filters down from the top to the bottom
You mightn't like it but you can't seem to stop 'em
It filters down from the top to the bottom
You mightn't like it but you can't seem to stop 'em

Don't plan ahead don't look behind
Just survive hour by hour
Don't think, you don't have to plan
Pay homage to the central power
Once in a while we get a change
Start again, try something new
Trouble was the trouble is
All the many get told by the few

Economy, military, religion to they
Swing to the left, swing to the right
To the rhythm, the rhythm of might, 'cos it
It filters down from the top to the bottom
You mightn't like it but you can't seem to stop 'em
It filters down from the top to the bottom
You mightn't like it but you can't seem to stop 'em

Stop 'em!

Economy, military, religion to, they
Swing to the left, swing to the right
To the rhythm, the rhythm of might, 'cos it
It filters down from the top to the bottom
You mightn't like it but you can't seem to stop 'em
It filters down from the top to the bottom
You mightn't like it but you can't seem to stop 'em
It filters down from the top to the bottom
