Blackstreet Phil – “No Unemployed

20 November 2017

New single from Philip Hammond‘s Blackstreet tribute band.

LYRICS:

Tories keep down rates of
Unemployment all over town
Strictly business, we’re renowned
For making work pay, zero hours, by the pound
Getting you paid is our forte
Each and every day, make the living wage
I’ll keep you out of sight and out of mind
If we’ve left you sat at home on your behind
Eastside to the westside
Everybody works, that’s what I decide
I’m fiscal and I’ll never be rash
When it comes to cash
Second home to keep my furniture stashed
Theresa is powerless
Presiding over an unholy mess
So now I’m eyeing number 10
I wanna get in
Can I get down so I can win?

See, everybody’s working (no unemployed)
Okay, I made that up (made it up)

The Iain Duncan Smiths – “All I Want for Xmas is Universal Credit

22 November 2017

The Universal Credit themed Christmas single from The Iain Duncan Smiths.

LYRICS:

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
Universal Credit rolled out
In every constituency

If you need an advance loan
Pay to sort it out by phone
There, I guess I said it
All I want for Christmas is Universal Credit

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
(And that’s) Universal Credit rolled out
To cement my legacy

Okay, maybe it’s not perfect
Maybe needs a few minor tweaks
But personally I’d keep you waiting
Even longer than six weeks

Millions wasted on IT
Saw the bill and spat my tea
At first I thought I’d misread it
But all I want for Christmas is Universal Credit

Oh I won’t ask for much this Christmas
I won’t even claim for breakfast
Oh yeah, that reminds me, Brexit
Shut up, it is so not reckless

Get your Universal Credit
The principles are pretty sound
As long as you can last
A month without a single pound

Will you stop looking so listless?
Cheer up, man, it’s bloody Christmas
Affluence – hell, I wed it
And all I want for Christmas is Universal Credit
