Out the other end

Is this how it’s always going to be,
like
try one, buy one, get one free,
what is the government doing
for me?

they’re
giving me earache
give a day, take a day
isolate yourself away.

I think the cuckoo’s nest has been
well and truly flown over
and
we’ve all had our five cents of
electricity,

maybe
that’s what this government
has done for me,

straightened my hair!
