British schools during COVID-19, parody song


This 22 March 2020 satiric music video from Britain is called The Iain Duncan Smiths – The Deadmaster Ritual.

It is a parody of the song The Headmaster Ritual by The Smiths.

It says about itself:

The #GetBackToSchool single from The Iain Duncan Smiths.

LYRICS:

Belligerent ghouls send kids back to schools
Spineless swines with bald minds
Sir IDS briefing the press
On behalf of Big Big Business
Blair and Blunkett and Alan Johnson
Complete the gegenpress

Don’t want you at home
Get out and learn
Free up your parents to go out and earn

We could even do Fit For School tests
Where we thwack you on the knees
Knee you in the groin
Throw pencils at your head
Give you full marks if you’re not dead

You’ll want to go home
But you’ll have to stay

Belligerent ghouls send kids back to schools
Down with social distancing rules!
Sir IDS is not impressedWith your weakling indecisiveness
Can’t do the military two-step
But I’ll get Mark Francois to stand on your neck

Get out of your homes
Let teachers be heroes
Lay down your lives to give dividends extra zeroes

Please excuse me, you say
I’ve got this terrible cough coming on
I’ll grab you off the beach
And pump you full of bleach
Grab you off the beach and pump you full of bleach
You’ll want to go home
But you’ll have to stay
