Track Name: I Don't Like It!!
I Don't Like it, No not at all
I Don't Like it, It makes me feel so small
I Don't Like it, It gives me a chill
I Don't Like it, and I never will

I Don't Like it, I just don't care
I Don't Like it, and it's so unfair
I Don't Like it, day in and day out
I Don't Like it, it makes me wanna shout

You ask me once, you ask me twice, I don't like it
Don't ask me again just take my advice, I Don't Like it
Ive said it before it's not hard to tell, I Don't Like it
Ive made up my mind you can go to hell, I Don't Like it, I Don't Like it,
Track Name: To Have and To Have Not (Billy Bragg)
Up in the morning and out to school
Mother says there'll be no work next year
Qualifications once the Golden Rule
Are now just pieces of paper

Just because you're better than me
Doesn't mean I'm lazy
Just because you're going forwards
Doesn't mean I'm going backwards

If you look the part you'll get the job
In last year's trousers and your old school shoes
The truth is son, it's a buyer's market
They can afford to pick and choose

Just because you're better than me
Doesn't mean I'm lazy
Just because I dress like this
Doesn't mean I'm a communist

The factories are closing and the army's full -
I don't know what I'm going to do
But I've come to see in the Land of the Free
There's only a future for the Chosen Few

Just because you're better than me
Doesn't mean I'm lazy
Just because you're going forwards
Doesn't mean I'm going backwards

At twenty one you're on to of the scrapheap
At sixteen you were top of the class
All they taught you at school
Was how to be a good worker
The system has failed you, don't fail yourself

Just because you're better than me
Doesn't mean I'm lazy
Just because you're going forwards
Doesn't mean I'm going backwards
