The Lyrics

Since 2015, UK residents or ex-pats who believe that the country should continue its membership of the European Union have been nicknamed "remainers". The original tune and lyrics are attributed to Neil Diamond.
I thought trade always eroded sovereignty
Seemed the more I bought the less I sold,
But business kept on running
With marketing so cunning,
And soon some major companies grew bold.

Then I saw her plan, the one from Theresa,
Worms were outta the can, an’ she lost control.
I’m impressed, and ready to please her -
I’m a believer in my soul.

I thought Brexit would be a transition thing,
A simple way to get back to the past,
What’s the point in voting
When the world has gone insane?
Then instead of Brexit we got pain.

Then I saw her plan, now I’m a remainer
Not a trace - of doubt in my mind,
I’ll survive, like Gloria Gaynor
And happy to stand right by her side.

(instrumental break)

Rudd was out to get her,
Well that’s the way it seems.
Parliament’s de-railing all her schemes.

Then I saw her plan, the one from Theresa,
Worms are outta the can, she’s losing control.
Her Ministers veer, they’re happy to tease her
Now I’m a remainer in my soul.

I’m a remainer, never felt saner,
I follow Theresa, so eager to please her,
I’m a remainer, yeah yeah yeah,
Never felt saner, yeah yeah yeah.
Theresa is a reference to Theresa May, the UK's Conservative prime minister from 2016, Rudd is a reference to Amber Rudd, a member of her Cabinet, and Gloria Gaynor is the singer of a 1978 dance floor classic "I Will Survive", written by Dino Fekaris and Frederick J.Perren.

Yeah, from this side of the pond Brexit certainly seemed like a really poorly thought out and fundamentally stupid idea. But then again there's a lot of poorly thought out and stupid ideas floating around here, too, witness Donald J Trump as President of the United States. Isn't this how Earth ends of being ruled by Apes in the future?
