Women and Children

We're on a different track
They say no turning back
A journey to nowhere
And you're not paid to care

The gears are in reverse
Women and children first

There is no other way
The politicians say
We have to feel the pain
Or play a different game

Bad actors unrehearsed
Women and children first

Stash the cash offshore
Said the banker to the whore
Some hope in van for better
But get another red letter

But now we see the worst
Women and children first

Man the lifeboats
All hands to deck
Stow the anchor
we're heading for a wreck
