People’s Vote Trelawny

A People’s Vote throughout the land,
Our voices loud and true!
Theresa May shall understand
What Cornish folk can do.
And have they fixed the where and when?
And shall our freedoms die?
Here’s twenty thousand Cornish folk
Will know the reason why!

And shall our freedoms live?
Or shall our freedoms die?
Here’s twenty thousand Cornish folk
Will know the reason why!

They came to Cornwall on a bus
Emblazoned with a lie
They said they’d fund the NHS
We know they’d let it die
We’ll cross the Tamar, land to land,
We’ll have our final say:
With ‘One and All’, and hand in hand,
And who shall bid us nay?

And shall our freedoms live?
Or shall our freedoms die?
Here’s twenty thousand Cornish folk
Will know the reason why!

And when we come to Westminster,
A pleasant sight to view,
Come forth! come forth ye cowards all,
Here’s folk as good as you!
They think they’ll stop democracy
They think we’ll watch it die
But twenty thousand Cornish folk
Will know the reason why!

And shall our freedoms live?
Or shall our freedoms die?
Here’s twenty thousand Cornish folk
Will know the reason why!

To the tune of ‘Bread of Heaven’

Brexit is a load of rubbish
Spreading blight throughout the land
Sold on lies, an empty promise
Listen to what we demand
Ask the people, ask the people
We will say we want no more
We will say we want no more

To the tune of ‘All Through the Night’

What a total mess is Brexit
Let’s put it right
Ask the people if they want it
Let’s put it right
No more lying, no more weeping
No more politicians sleeping
Jobs and freedoms are for keeping
Let’s put it right

What shall we do with this rotten Brexit?

What shall we do with this rotten Brexit
What shall we do with this rotten Brexit
What shall we do with this rotten Brexit
Early in the morning?

Let’s have a vote and see who wants it
Let’s have a vote and see who wants it
Let’s have a vote and see who wants it
Early in the morning!

Hooray, and Exit Brexit
Hooray, and Exit Brexit
Hooray, and Exit Brexit
Early in the morning!

What shall we do with Boris Johnson
What shall we do with Boris Johnson
What shall we do with Boris Johnson
Early in the morning?

Stick him on a bus with a Cornish pasty
Stick him on a bus with a Cornish pasty
Stick him on a bus with a Cornish pasty
Early in the morning!

Hooray, and Exit Brexit
Hooray, and Exit Brexit
Hooray, and Exit Brexit
Early in the morning!

What shall we do with Jacob Rees-Mogg
What shall we do with Jacob Rees-Mogg

Early in the morning?

Put him offshore where he keeps his money
Put him offshore where he keeps his money
Put him offshore where he keeps his money
Early in the morning!

Hooray, and Exit Brexit

Send him off to Trump with a one-way ticket
Send him off to Trump with a one-way ticket
Early in the morning!

Hooray, and Exit Brexit

Early in the morning?

Put ‘em all in jail where they belong
Put ‘em all in jail where they belong
Put ‘em all in jail where they belong
Early in the morning!

The worst old ship

The worst old ship that ever did sail
Was the bad ship Brexit, doomed to fail

And we’re waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
That we get our say

She was built with bloody great lies
Empty promises and porky pies

And we’re waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
That we get our say

Nothing in the galley, nothing in the hold
But the crooks at the helm took Russian gold

And we’re waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
That we get our say

The captain’s a liar and the first mate’s a cheat
And the crew will soon have nowt to eat

And we’re waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
That we get our say

The captain says it’ll work out fine
But the ship’s got a hole ‘neath the waterline

And we’re waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
That we get our say

The worst old ship that ever did sail
Was the bad ship Brexit, doomed to fail

And we’re waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
That we get our say
