  • Lyrics
  • This song is fairly political and refers to the "grin and bear it" attitude of the British public. Lead singer Paul Heaton is suggesting that many are unhappy, but will accept the way things are with a hopeless level of optimism rather than actually do something to change the situation and thus improve their lives. >>
