The Lyrics

IF YOU'RE WEALTHY WITH A TITLE
Lend a hand (clap, clap)
IF YOU'RE WELFARE CASE ENTITLED
Lend a hand (clap, clap)
IF YOU'RE WEALTHY OR ON WELFARE
YOU CAN ALWAYS MAKE THINGS BETTER
IF YOU'RE WELL OFF OR A PAUPER
Lend a hand (clap, clap)



IF YOU'RE YOUNG AND ABLE BODIED
Lend a hand (clap, clap)
IF YOU'RE OLD AND FEEBLE BODIED
Lend a hand (clap, clap)
IF YOU'RE FEEBLE OR YOU'RE ABLE
YOU CAN ALWAYS CHANGE THE WO-RLD
IF YOU'RE HEALTHY OR YOU HOBBLE
Lend a hand (clap, clap)



ALL YOU WHITE GLOVED DIGNITARIES
Lend a hand (clap, clap)
ALL YOU QUADRUPLE AMPUTEES
Lend a hand (clap, clap)
IF YOU'RE HIGHNESS OR YOU'RE GLOVELESS
THEY SHOULD NEVER CALL YOU LOVELESS
IF YOU'RE SPOTLESS OR YOU'RE ARMLESS
Lend a hand (clap, clap)



IF YOU'RE CAST IN A NEW SIT-COM
Lend a hand (clap, clap)
IF YOU HAVE CASTS ON BOTH YOUR ARMS
Lend a hand (clap, clap)
IF YOU HEADLINE OR IN TRACTION
YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THE ACTION
IF YOU'RE ACTING OR YOU'RE SCRATCHIN'
Lend a hand (clap, clap)

I take it this meant as a pro-social parody instead of a funny one. If so, good job!

Reminds me of Monty Python's sketch "The Upper-Class Twit Of The Year" !!

Just realized what your comment on my take of the same OS meant: yep, who knows how many verses the OS has, and TBH who cares? I enjoyed this, but to be really picky you could have tried a bit harder on the rhyming (I know I had quite a few that caused a lot of headaches, so I'm just trying to spread the pain)
