Hold Your Head Up High

lyrics

I was with this gammon, he stands next to me
And spits out his coffee at the word "diversity"
He don't care for refugees, no, he'd send them all back
He's never left Kirkcaldy yet his culture's on the rack
I think that it's funny to wind the gammons up
They will believe anything if it's outrageous enough
Like "they're bulldozing the bookies so they can build more mosques
and gender-neutrifying all the toilets doon the pub"

And hold yer head up high, walk your own way
Show them anything is possible
I believe in you

I work with this gammon, he says there's never been
A worse time for the white man since nineteen canteen
But white men still rule Alba, he'll always have his say
Just equal rights mean you can't have it all your own way
Today I'm gonna tell him "Greggs have had to ban
products that ain't halal cos steak bakes offend Allah"
If you enjoy hyperbole sit back and light the fuse
I'm proud to be different and I'm proud of you

And hold yer head up high, walk your own way
Show them anything is possible
I believe in you

Wind em up wind em up wind em up
Wind the gammon up wind the gammon up wind the gammon up

I know it's not that easy, you want a quiet life
You didn't start the fire, you've no energy to fight
But you are amazing, it's your time to shine
You can change the world a little bit at a time

And hold yer head up high, walk your own way
Show them anything is possible
I believe in you
