The Jazz Butcher Lyrics Sixteen Years

Lyrics

Sixteen Years
Privatised hospitals
Privatised water
Privatised electric
Privatised gas
Privatised buses
Privatised railways
Privatised garbage
Privatised jails

I hate you
I hate you
I hate you
I hate you

I hate you
I hate you
I hate you
I hate you

Privatised pensions
Privatised airports
Privatised dentists
Privatised coal
Privatised ferries
Privatised housing
Privatised telephones
Privatised nuclear power

I hate you
I hate you
I hate you
I hate you

I hate you
I hate you
I hate you
I hate you

Privatised businesses have shareholders
who expect to make personal gain
from their stake in essential public services
infested with junior-rat management...
and people wonder where
all the fucking money's gone.

I hate you
I hate you
I hate you
I hate you

I hate you
I hate you
I hate you
I hate you

(liars)
(cowards)
(fools)
(wankers)

Illuminate
New JBC lp duly completed in secure Northampton location. 1994 live line-up stumbled through a series of tunes and such under Butcher's direction, aided and abetted by a number of the usual suspects; Alex Lee on guitar, Alex Green on saxes, that sort of thing.
[Sixteen Years cover thumbnail]
Sixteen Years (single)
At a time when there would appear to be no need for it, here they come again. That Purveyor of some of the most heavenly and enduring pop non-hits you're ever likely to hear has regrouped his gang of aging sociopaths and built himself, in the barns and sheds of Northamptonshire, a band.

Insight

The Butcher Says..
Defly manoeuvring their way around a Leveller's song title, the JBC show up mob handed and do their collective nut on behalf of Clause Four. Nasty, Brutish & Short... The single.

    Well said.

    So I take it you don't queue to grab a copy of the delightful Metro at the Junction of a morning..?
