about

A tune we wrote about the London Riots of 2011

lyrics

Me and Becky took a walk down the retail park
There was something going on
When the sun went down the shutters went up
Everybody was helping, helping themselves
Strangest shopping I’d ever seen
No-one got a receipt
Becky said we could do the same
No-one there would get the blame

Oh me and Becky took a load
Took what ever we could hold
Then we went back and sat on the wall
So we got a TV, but it was too heavy
So we put it in a skip and we got it next day

I couldn’t sleep I was so wired
My Blackberry was going all night
When finally I got me head down
My conscience spoke to me

Oh you and Becky took a load
You took whatever you could hold
What about the little man
Wrekking his shop you helped burn down

Man I felt so sorry
Some people lost their homes
We thought we’d get away with it
But they caught our faces anyway

Now I’m sitting in my prison cell
Worried about my little girl
Will they give her back to me
Will she know her mummy

Becky says she’s doing fine
But she ain’t the one sat here doing time
