Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
We'll strike the bleedin' night
If we don't get the message right
And say the shit's backing up in 10 again! (Hallelujah!)

Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10? ('Ello, 'ello!)
Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Birds put the turd in custard (Why not?)
But who put the shit in number 10?
Well wot a fucking joke
It's enough to make to you choke
'Cos the shit's backing up in 10 again!

Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Well I can't believe me ears
After 4 horrific years
That the shit's backing up in 10 again! (Cor blimey!)

Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
It's a joke without an end
Tell all your mates and friends
That the shit's backing up in 10 again!

We know who put the chain in Britain
Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
We know who put the boot in Brixton
But who put the shit in number 10?
We know who put the Brits in Belfast
But who put the shit in number 10?
You think we're full enough
Then she tells us that it's tough
And the shit's backing up in 10 again!
And the shit's backing up in 10 again!
Yeah.

And we keep it going, hey!

Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Well I ask of it, "So what?
We're gonna drop the fucking lot"
'Cos the shit's backing up in 10 again! (And again and again and again!)

We know who put the chain on Britain
But who put the shit in number 10?
We know who's gonna make the people pay for it
But who put the shit in number 10?
We know who's gonna make the people die for it
But who put the shit in number 10?
You oughtn't fucking know
'Cos the truth is always slow
And the shit's backing up in 10 again!

"I say, I say, I say, what's the difference between a cactus and the houses of parliament?"
"I don't know, what is the difference between a cactus and the houses of parliament?"
"A cactus has got its pricks on the outside!"
"WA, HA, HA, HA!!!"

Birds put the turd in custard
(Tap dance solo)
But who put the shit in number 10?
(Tap dance solo)
Birds put the turd in custard
(Tap dance solo)
But who put the shit in number 10?
(Tap dance solo)

"I say, I say, I say, what's the difference between a pair of Margaret Thatcher's knickers and the union jack?"
"I don't know what is the difference between a pair of Margaret Thatcher's knickers and the union jack?"
"The union jack hasn't got any brown stripes on it!"
"AAAAAGH, HA, HA, HA!!!"

We're gonna get the johnnies on right quick
But who put the shit in number 10?
And when the bugger comes we'll have an ice cream
But who put the shit in number 10?
Thatcher's lining out her pit to get ready
But who put the shit in number 10?
And if you're looking for some class
Just stick a finger up your arse
'Cos the shit's backing up in 10 again!

Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
Birds put the turd in custard
But who put the shit in number 10?
(Speeds up into pure noise)

    General CommentWhoever said Crass never had a sense of humour? My favourite satirical piece they've done, it's a blast to sing along to when wasted. Funny as hell too, and more political than their incredibly thick accents initially let on. This includes both sides of the 7", which don't officially have any titles, but I just name them after the two most frequently repeated phrases. Interestingly enough (to me at least), this wasn't released as a C.R.&S.S. record like the other two joke releases were, but a fully numbered Crass Records release. I guess they were serious this time; it was recorded "in desperation" on election night after all.
