The Lyrics

Since 2015, UK residents or ex-pats who believe that the United Kingdom should retain membership of the European Union (EU) and elect MEPs have been nicknamed "remainers", whilst those advocating swift detachment have identified as "Brexiteers". The song is focused on an imaginary household in which two adults hold opposing views on the wisdom of the UK remaining within the EU. The two streets mentioned are both famous streets in central London.
If I were a Brexiteer, and you a remainer,
Would you start a relationship with your personal trainer?
If I called local radio, acting quite tearful,
Would you ’phone Nick Ferrari and give him an ear-full?

Sifting through alternatives, sceptical of media,
Wondering whether superstores will have enough to feed ya.
If I made a video and campaigned for Farage,
Would you drive to the countryside, leaving me in the garage?
If I march along Regent Street, constables kettling,
While you’re shouting at Downing Street, would you find that unsettling?

Politicians overstretched, trapped in this hiatus,
Failing their constituents, slowly losing status.
Economic loneliness, sharpened isolation,
Criminals more camouflaged through loss of information.
Shortages of medicines, bandages and ointment,
Longer waits in hospitals, widespread disappointment.

Share our love through arguments, analyse like Poirot,
Wading through this holy mess we seek a bright tomorrow.
If I sent explosives to Ken Clarke in a parcel,
Would you tell the authorities? Would you call me an arsehole?
Would you tell the authorities? Would you call me an arsehole?
Nick Ferrari hosts a radio phone-in programme, as does Nigel Farage, a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) at publication date. Ken Clarke is a long-serving Conservative member of the UK parliament who generally supports international agreements, and sees many disadvantages to Brexit. Hercule Poirot is an analytical fictional twentieth-century detective conceived by the widely-read mystery writer Agatha Christie, who died in 1976. This detective featured in books published from 1920 until 2016, the final two books being written by another writer, but sanctioned by Agatha's descendants and representatives.
