  • Let's all go on an urban safari
    We might see some illegal migrants
    Oi look there's a chav
    That means council housed and violent
    He's got a hoodie on give him a hug
    On second thoughts don't you don't wanna get mugged
    Oh shit too late that was kinda dumb
    Whose idea was that stupid

    He's got some front, ain't we all
    Be the joker, play the fool
    What's politics, ain't it all
    Smoke and mirrors, April fools
    All year round, all in all
    Just another brick in the wall
    Get away with murder in the schools
    Use four letter swear words coz we're cool

    We're all drinkers, drug takers
    Every single one of us buns the herb
    Keep on believing what you read in the papers
    Council estate kids, scum of the earth
    Think you know how life on a council estate is
    From everything you've ever read about it or heard
    Well it's all true, so stay where you're safest
    There's no need to step foot out the 'burbs
    Truth is here, we're all disturbed
    We cheat and lie its so absurd
    Feed the fear that's what we've learned
    Fuel the fire
    Let it burn

    Oi! I said Oi
    What you looking at you little rich boy
    We're poor 'round here, run home and lock your door
    Don't come 'round here no more, you could get robbed for
    Real (yeah) because my manor's ill

    My manor's ill
    For real
    Yeah you know my manor's ill, my manor's ill

    You could get lost in this concrete jungle
    New builds keep springing up outta nowhere
    Take the wrong turn down a one way junction
    Find yourself in the hood nobody goes there

    We got an Eco-friendly government
    They preserve our natural habitat
    Built an entire Olympic village
    Around where we live without pulling down any flats
    Give us free money and we don't pay any tax
    NHS healthcare, yes please many thanks
    People get stabbed round here there's many shanks
    Nice knowing someone's got our backs when we get attacked
    Don't bloody give me that
    I'll lose my temper
    Who closed down the community center?
    I kill time there used to be a member
    What will I do now 'til September?
    Schools out, rules out, get your bloody tools out
    London's burning, I predict a riot
    Fall in fall out
    Who knows what it's all about
    What did that chief say? Something bout the kaisers
    Kids on the street no they never miss a beat
    Never miss a cheap thrill when it comes their way
    Let's go looting
    No not Luton
    The high street's closer cover your face
    And if we see any rich kids on the way we'll make 'em wish they stayed inside
    There's a charge for congestion, everybody's gotta pay
    Do what Boris does rob them blind

    Oi! I said Oi
    What you looking at you little rich boy
    We're poor 'round here, run home and lock your door
    Don't come 'round here no more, you could get robbed for
    Real (yeah) because my manor's ill

    My manor's ill
    For real
    Yeah you know my manor's ill, my manor's ill

    We've had it with you politicians
    you bloody rich kids never listen
    There's no such thing as broken Britain
    We're just bloody broke in Britain
    What needs fixing is the system
    Not shop windows down in Brixton
    Riots on the television
    You can't put us all in prison
    Oi! I said Oi
    What you looking at you little rich boy
    We're poor 'round here, run home and lock your door
    Don't come 'round here no more, you could get robbed for
    Real (yeah) because my manor's ill

    My manor's ill
    For real
    Yeah you know my manor's ill , my manor's ill Writer/s: ALEXANDER WILLIAM SHUCKBURGH, BENJAMIN PAUL BALLANCE-DREW, DAVID CONEN, DMITRIJ DMITRIEVICH SHOSTAKOVICH, PIERRE BAIGORRY, VINCENT VON SCHLIPPENBACH
