The Lyrics

I read the Daily Mail, why oh why
In quite painful detail, why oh why
It seemed like every single page
Dripped with incoherent rage
And it's so full of fail, why oh why

It said coffee causes cancer, why oh why
Or it might just be the answer, why oh why
If your house price has fallen
Yes! The Mail will know why:
I'm sure the answer is cancer, why oh why

They're always complainin' why oh why
How we're going down the dra-in, why oh why
They think that the nation's
Drowning under immigration
But they're never explainin' why oh why

They don't understand science, why oh why
Just spout brainless defiance, why oh why
Do our troubles all entail
What is in the Daily Mail
They want mindless compliance why oh why

I can barely conceive it, why oh why
Why do people believe it, why oh why?
All that pettiness and blether
It's enough to make you cry
We should all simply leave it.. why oh why
Put it down.. simply leave it. Why oh why.

Ah, the Daily Fail. The Tottenham Hotspur of journalism. All that bluster, but not good on facts. Now you know why the son who works there, despite a steady job, wants to be a paperback writer.

Phil - They just don't sound like Nobel material to me. Good work. ;D
