Ignore them all my darling

Ignore them all my darling

If you think that business moving overseas,
Is an indication of a country on its knees;
And those you voice concern to, answer with a sneer,
Ignore them all my darling, as reality draws near.

Sixty thousand EU workers
In our hospitals,
And vacancies aren’t filled, as that number vastly falls;
When Brexit-backers tell you, it’s only project fear,
Ignore them all my darling, as reality draws near.

The USA has promised, a so called great escape;
New deals on the table, with no EU red-tape,
Are you reassured, after Donald Trump’s address?
Will there never be an option, to sell the NHS?

Before we’re through with Europe, there’ll be a deal they say,
But if it stays unsettled, we’re leaving come what may;
And if there's recession, and grave financial pain;
Apparently, it’s worth it if it makes us great again.

And if there are shortages, like many years before,
When rationing on food was imposed in times of war,
If more expensive tariffs cripple industry,
Is that a price worth paying, for being EU-free?

When, as we keep being told, sovereignty’s returned,
And EU legislation has effectively been burned,
Will there be a boon for every public service here?
Will being out of Europe put an end to project fear?

Did you hear Ann Widdecombe; that mad speech she gave,
When she likened Brexit to the freeing of a slave?
Did she speak for all of those, who don’t wish to remain?
If she did, we’re fucked, and the country’s gone insane.

Sixty thousand EU workers
In our hospitals,
And vacancies aren’t filled, as that number vastly falls;
When Brexit-backers tell you, it’s only project fear,
Ignore them all my darling, as reality draws near.
