  • If we vote for you, do you promise
    To be upright, decent and honest
    To have our best interest at heart
    You understand why we don't believe you
    You're way too easy to see through
    Not the best places to start

    There are no rocks at Rockaway beach
    And all that glitters isn't gold

    You're all so drunk on money and power
    Inside your Ivory tower
    Teaching us not to be smart
    Making laws that serve to protect you
    But we will never forget that
    You tore our families apart

    There are no rocks at Rockaway beach
    And all that glitters isn't gold

    So if we vote for you, do you promise
    To be upright, decent and honest
    And take away all of the fear
    You sit and wait for us to elect you
    But all we'll do is reject you
    Your politics bore us to tears

    There are no rocks at Rockaway beach
    And all that glitters isn't gold Writer/s: Horace Panter, Lynval Golding, Nikolaj Torp Larsen, Terry Hall
