No fags no beer

No skunk no fear

No knife crime statistics over here


No happy hour no beach umbrellas

No decent girls no proper fellas

No why no when no Bill & Ben

No BNP in number ten


No bendy fruit no knobbly spuds

No baseball caps no shades no hoods


No liquids more than thirty mil

No duty-free without the bill

No refusing your DNA

No civil rights get in the way


No blind-spot in the camera’s view

No privacy for what you do 

No credit cards to chop the line

No need because your wallet’s mine   


No mortgages no high street spender

No asking or assuming gender

No real justice no offender

No jobs no hope no joke no splendour.
