    Lyrics

    Too many Florence Nightingales
    Not enough Robin Hoods
    Too many halos not enough heroes
    Coming up with the goods

    So you though you'd like to change the world
    Decided to stage a jumble sale
    For the poor, for the poor

    It's a waste of time if you know what they mean
    Try shaking a box in front of the Queen
    'Cause her purse is fat and bursting at the seams
    It's a waste of time if you know what they mean

    Too many hands in too many pockets
    Not enough hands on hearts
    Too many ready to call it a day
    Before the day starts

    So you thought you'd like to see them healed
    Got Blue Peter to stage an appeal
    For the poor, for the poor

    It's a waste of time if you know what they mean
    Try shaking a box in front of the Queen
    'Cause her purse is fat and bursting at the seams
    It's a waste of time if you know what they mean

    Flag Day, Flag Day, Flag Day
