"Fallen on Hard Times" as written by and Ian Anderson....
Fallen on hard times but it feels good to know,
that milk and honey's just around the bend.
Running on bad lines we'd better run as we go,
Tear up, tear up the overdraft again.

Oh, dear Prime Minister it's all such a mess.
Go right ahead and pull the rotten tooth.
Oh, Mr. President you've been put to the test.
Come clean, for once, and hit us with the truth.

Looking for sunshine oh but it's black and it's cold
Yet, you say that milk and honey's just round the bend.
Giving us a hard time, my friends
handing us the same line again.

Fallen on hard times and there's nowhere to hide
Now they've re-possessed the Rolls Royce and the mink.
Turning on the peace sign and it's back to the wood.
Soon there will be raised a holy stink.

Somebody wake me. I've been sleeping too long.
Oh, I don't have to take this lying down.
You can keep your promises. Shove 'em where they belong.
Don't ask me to the party, won't be around.

Looking for sunshine oh but it's black and it's cold
Yet, you say that milk and honey's just round the bend.
Giving us a hard time, my friends
handing us the same line again.

Fallen on hard times. We've fallen on hard times.
Fallen on hard times. If you read between the lines.
Fallen on hard times.
