Lords in their chambers
they're handing out favours
They only answer to God
Watching the bankers
the second rate chancers
Driving us into the ground.

There's a sign on his door
says "Don't come in"
What's he doing in there
with his nistress?
There's a sign on the door
Experience for sale
There's a sign on the door.
I'm gonna get ya.

We had Great Expectations
But you all let us down
We had Great Expectations
You just let us down.

Priests and their morals
sing Christmas carols
While drinking
the communion wine
Mix up the story
we know of Heaven and Glory
See the blind leading blind.

There's a cross on the wall
and a purple gown
It's a story we know only too well
There's a cross on the wall
and a candle bright
There's a cross on the wall
but it just ain't right.

We had Great Expectations
But you all let us down
We had Great Expectations
You just let us down, down, down


Here comes the young man
fathering children
He'll never see as they grow
Watching the young girl
dancing for money
Swinging her legs round a pole.

Forgotten child
if you head goes wild
Forgotten child
of despair
Forgotten child
gotta rise above
If you gotta get crazy
Get high on love.

We had -Great Expectations
But you all let us down
We had Great Expectations
You just let us down down down.

We had -Great- Expectations
But you all let us down
We had Great Expectations
You just let us down down down.
