Gunpowder, Treason and Plot
gunpowder
1984, the year I was born
A turbulent time, to strike if you mine.
Industrial action, is just a reaction
From Kent the North-East, Yorkshire and the Valleys.

It's hanging over us, created by the pit closures
And Maggie got her way.
'The Lady's not for turning' on the enemy she says within
And the people don't eat today.
The people are freezing cold today.

Poverty stricken, communities are ruined
Families go hungry, well this is modern Britain!
25 years later, people are still bitter
Understandably so, we now import cheap coal

It's hanging over us, created by the pit closures
And Maggie got her way.
It's economic ruin so we're stopping milk for children
And the children don't eat today.
The children are freezing cold today.
