    Lyrics

    (Ian Hunter)

    I don't wanna be no traitor to the cause
    But England is a luxury - not many can afford
    There's people going under - it's getting out of hand
    Whatever happened to our - our green and pleasant land?

    It turned into a wilderness; it turned into a third world country
    Most people ain't getting what they pay for
    Some people gettin' more than they should be
    I know, I know - I'm an alien - but what are you gonna do
    I wanna live in England - but it gets to you
    It gets to you, it gets to you, it gets to you

    I really don't know why - England's such a ripoff
    It's crazy, but it's true
    I really don't know why - England wants to rip off you
    England wants to rip off you, England wants to rip off you

    What do you do when you find out?
    Where do you go if you leave?
    There's no place like home - that's what they say
    And that's what you always believed
    Someday you might win the Lottery
    Someday you might win the Pools
    But that's all you've got - that's all you've got
    - to live for, to live for
    That's all you've got - that's all you've got -
    To live for, to live for (yeah)

    To be or not to be - that's the question
    Oh what's it gonna be?
    I'd love to live in England - but it gets to me
    It gets to me, it gets to me, yeah it gets to me

    I really don't know why - England's such a ripoff
    It's crazy, but it's true
    I really don't know why - England wants to rip off you
    England wants to rip off you, England wants to rip off you
    I really don't know why - England's such a ripoff
    It's crazy, but it's true
    Oh I really don't know why - England wants to rip off
    England wants to rip off , England wants to rip off
