"Shame of the Nation" as written by and Stephen Paul David/hook Morris....
Ooh hoo, ah ha ha ha
Ooh hoo, ah ah ah ah
Ooh hoo, ah ah ah ah
State of the nation
Our salvation
State of the nation, ah ah ah ah
You can walk (you can walk), or you can run (run)
You don't have to be someone
I went on (I went on) a summer cruise
Upon an ocean born to lose
My brother said that he was dead
I saw his face and shook my head
Do you see where we can't be
We're losing our blood in the sea
'Cause it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's holding our salvation (our salvation)
'Cause it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's holding our salvation (ah ah ah ah)
State of the nation (ooh)
Is causing death inflation (ah ah ah ah)
Oh, the state of the nation (state of the nation)
Is causing death inflation (ah ah ah ah)

Ooh, ah ah ah ah
From my home I traveled far
I drove in my stolen car
When it broke down, I kissed the ground
'Cause I don't kiss when you're around
I don't find that I have been
The portrait of an only son
If that's the case, then who could tell
Where my story had begun?
'Cause it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's holding our salvation (our salvation)
'Cause it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's holding our salvation (ah ah ah ah)
The state of the nation (ooh)
Is causing death inflation (ah ah ah ah)
Oh, the state of the nation (state of the nation)
Is causing death inflation (ah ah ah ah)

State of the nation
State of the nation
State of the nation
State of the nation
State of the nation
State of the nation
State of the nation
State of the nation
State
Ooh, ah ah ah ah
Ooh, ah ah ah ha
Ooh, ah ah ah ah
Ooh, ah ah ah ah
Even now

Our salvation
Ooh, ah ah ah ah
Even now
I'm all alone
Behind a wall that's made of stone
I think about (think about) where we have been
And all the sights that could be seen
I know it all could be worthwhile
If only I could force a smile
Now we turn our backs to the sea
The shame of a nation we'll never be
'Cause it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's holding our salvation (our salvation)
Yes it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's holding our salvation (ah ah ah ah)
The state of the nation (state of the nation, ooh))
Is causing death inflation (ah ah ah ah)
Oh, the state of the nation (ooh)
Is causing death inflation (ah ah ah ah)

Ooh, ah ah ah ah
Ooh, ah ah ah ah
Ooh, our salvation
State of the nation (ah ah ah ah)
Our salvation
State of the nation (ooh ah ah ah ah)
Our salvation
State of the nation (ooh ah ah ah ah)
Our salvation
