The Poison Tree

from Words to say by Will Good and The Mattes

/

about

Those who lend their vote to the societal poison that is the Tory Party should ask themselves whether they, or someone they care about, might ever need the state care and local services they are sacrificing to pay for their tax cuts. Self interest speaks louder than the voice of God.

lyrics

Hang me from the Poison Tree
I like the sound of what you say
I’m born lucky, stay that way
If fate don’t kick the chair from under me

Hang me from the Poison Tree
Mine is mine, come what may
I’m born lucky, stay that way
If fate don’t kick the chair from under me

Hang me from the Poison Tree
Law and order, make my day
I’m born lucky, stay that way
If fate don’t kick the chair from under me

Hang me from the Poison Tree
They want something, they can pray
I’m born lucky, stay that way
If fate don’t kick the chair from under me

Louder than the word of God

Hang me from the Poison Tree
I’ll be fine come judgment day
I’m born lucky, stay that way
If fate don’t kick the chair from under me
