The new “Jerusalem”! Brilliant stuff from Richard Littlejohn in the DM . . .
Please sing the NEW VERSION from below
And did those feet, in modern times
Swarm into England's welfare state.
And was the Eurotunnel breached
Because someone forgot to lock the gate.
And so we boarded trucks and trains
As French policemen stood around
Thus was Afghanistan builded here
In England's overcrowded towns.
Bring me my dole, my benefits
Take me to Croydon DSS.
Give me a job, a council house
And free treatment on the NHS.
I shall not cease to demand my rights
Then I shall send for my wife and mum
And we will build Afghanistan
In England's inner-city slums.
