Brexit Blues

They marked their papers Leave and yet they wanted to remain.
They didn’t realise it meant not going back again.
And now some are regretting it and Britain’s in a mess.
Oh, don’t you wish you’d voted Yes?

Fat Boris and thin Michael and Nigel Farage too
were busy telling us the things that they were going to do
but now we know they lied, although of course they won’t confess.
Oh, don’t you wish you’d voted Yes?

And Jeremy was half-hearted and Lexit wanted out
and all the people pushing No made a bigger shout
and far too many voters chose on no more than a guess.
Oh, don’t you wish you’d voted Yes?

So here we are in Brexit feeling stunned and shamed and sad.
The pound has fallen, jobs are lost and Cameron’s looking bad.
And many of the leavers are now moaning in distress.
Oh, don’t you wish you’d voted Yes?
