This is me in my entirety.

But who are you?  Have we met before?

I sit in a fence on any argument and when victory is close

I’ll present another angle to provoke more thought and confrontation

and with my wooden spoon I mock these situations.

This is me in my entirety.

BALLAD OF ANTO MORRA

OH MY NAME’S ANTHONY MORRISSEY THAT I’L NEVER CHANGE IN LONDON IT’S MORRA NOW TO SOME THAT SOUNDS STRANGE

IN DUBLIN IT’S ANTO AND IN NORFOLK TONY SO WHEN I’M ASKED MY NAME I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY

I GREW UP IN LONDON A MILE FROM THE WEST END WITH MY THREE SISTERS AND SEAN MY BEST FRIEND

WE RODE ON OUR CHOPPERS FISHED IN THE CANAL AND I KNOW I’LL NEVER FIND A BETTER PAL

NOW MY HEROES WERE BATMAN, GEORGE BEST AND MY DAD AND ON ME HE SPENT EVERY PENNY HE HAD

‘COS I WAS THE YOUNGEST THE DOTED ON SON I WAS SPOILED ROTTEN AND I HAD LOTS OF FUN

THEN I WENT TO SCHOOL IN POSH ST. JOHNS WOOD BUT IT WAS COMPREHENSIVE SO NOT SHORT OF A HOOD

THERE WERE JEW KIDS AND PADDIES, MUSLIMS, ASIANS AND BLACKS AND THE TEACHERS WERE COMMIES, GAY, HIPPIES AND PUNKS

THE BUILDING SITE WAS WHERE I FIRST WENT TO WORK BUT I WAS A DANDY I HATED THE DIRT

I WANTED NOTHING TO DO WITH THATCHERS BRITIAN OF GREED SO I SIGNED ON THE DOLE AND SPENT TWELVE YEARS ASLEEP

I TOOK TO MY BED WITH A GREAT LUMP OF HASH AND I ONLY GOT UP TO GO OUT ON THE LASH

I JOINED A ROCK BAND AND I GREW MY HAIR AND I CHASED THOSE LADIES DARK, AUBURN AND FAIR

I GOT RESTLESS IN LONDON ITS SUCH A RAT RACE SO I MOVED OUT TO NORFOLK TO SLOW DOWN THE PACE

IN NORWICH I STUDIED ART AND DESIGN THEN I GOT MARRIED AND FOUND PEACE OF MIND

WITH THIS GOOD LIFE I’VE GOT MIDDLE AGED SPREAD MY LOCKS ARE ALL GONE THERE’S NO HAIR ON MY HEAD

BUT I STILL FEEL YOUNG WHEN I PLAY MY GUITAR AND SING THE OLD FOLK SONGS “FAL-OO-AR-LI–A”

I’VE NEVER HAD MONEY BUT I’VE LOTS OF GOOD FRIENDS SO I’M RICHER THAN KINGS AND WILL BE TIL THE END

AND SHOULD I DIE TOMORROW I’LL HAVE HAD A GOOD LIFE WITH A FUN LOVING FAMILY AND A BLOODY GOOD WIFE

ANGRY MAN

I GET HOT UNDER THE COLLAR I OFTEN BLOW A FUSE I KNOW I CAN BE IMPATIENT AND MY RAG I LOOSE

WORLD EVENTS AND TRIVIAL THINGS ALL ENOY ME EVERYTHING FROM HOLY WAR TO MURDOC AND PAGE THREE

MASS MEDIA CHOKE US WITH THIER CAR CRASH TV SEE A VACUOUS MORON BECOME A CELEBRITY

THOSE PAYDAY LOAN SHARKS AWLAYS FLEECE THE MOST IN NEED YOU CAN’T PAY SO GO TO PRISON AND PEDOPHILE GET FREED

(CHORUS)

IT MAKES ME A ANGRY MAN, IT MAKES ME A ANGRY MAN THESE THINGS MAKE ME AN ANGRY MAN

 

BONUSES FOR FAILING BANKERS THE TAX AVOIDANCE SCHEME EATON OXBRIDGE BULLINDON BOYS ALWAYS GET THE CREAM

SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE GOT NOTHING THE FEW HAVE TOO MUCH OIL SHIKS AND OLIGARCHS ARE TOO RICH TO TOUCH

OUR ROYALS AND RULING CLASSES ARE A DAMNED DISGRACE THE KILL AND CALL IT SPORT SMEAR BLOOD ON THEIR FACE

FOOLS LINE THE STEETS TO WAVE FLAGS FOR A CROWN WE’VE BEEN SOLD ON THE HIGH STREET SAME SHOPS IN EVERY TOWN

(CHORUS)

INTENSIVE FARMING GIVES US A CHEAP ABUNDANT FEAST NOW WE’VE ALL BEEN PIGEON WHOLED AS BULEMIC OR OBESE

I COULD GO ON FOREVER I’VE GOT AN ENDLESS LIST OF THINGS THAT CRUNCH MY GEARS AND BOIL MY PISS.
