They Make You Pay! Song. Sunnyside Road, Crouch End, London. 1994.

And they make you pay,

And they make you pay,

And they make you pay,

And they make you pay,

And if you keep to pay their way,

You’ll pay a different way someday,

And as you forget just how to play,under the pressure of ‘make you pay’,

You loose your pride,

You loose your say,

Making the money they make you pay.

(change)

In the world of make you pay,

Its easy now to loose your way,

And only say what you’re told to say,

20 years lost to ‘make you pay’.

And don’t belive its the only way,

There’s people fighting here today,

Surviving, just, in a peaceful way

Ignoring the world of ‘make you pay’

And they make you pay….(repeat as before)

………

(when tired of repeating end with..)

They’ve had to relearn what it is to play,

But one thing left I have to say (hold)….

They’re the happiest people in England today!

(2015 – This song has a chord driven, Irish, pub melody and moves along really fast and can get faster and faster! Fun to perform. Sang this the other night, around a blue moon fire with a small group of friends. Quite an anti-austerity song for 2015 too!?)
