"This Guitar Says Sorry" as written by and Billy Bragg....
Sandra met Raymond at the Race Relations
Much to the dismay of her family and friends
The love that we have is so important

The time that it takes to make a baby
Can be the time it takes to make a cup of tea
The love that we have is so important

He still goes dancing and she still cuts hair
They put the baby into Council care
The love that we have is so important

    General Comment"The Institute of Race Relations (IRR) was established as an independent educational charity in 1958 to carry out research, publish and collect resources on race relations throughout the world." It's based in London.

    So I think that Sandra and Raymond are an interracial couple who got knocked up (much to the dismay of their family and friends) and this is a brief biography of their life. The thesis of this song is that ove conquers all, even your poverty and your bigoted friends/family. (I'm not English, so I am just guessing that council care is a subsidized childcare service for low income people.)
