What Would The Neighbours Say?

The question the English have first on their minds

when making their choices each day, is not

"Is it ethical, moral or wise?" but

"What would the neighbours say?"

They have to conform to be "normal" or "cool"

'cos everyday is Judgement Day, they daren't

be creative or think for themselves.

What would the neighbours say?

And so every cause without rebels is lost,

simply by fading away and nothing much changes.

Well, Heaven forfend, what would the neighbours say?
