Funky Lol's Picket Line

lyrics

On Funky Lol's picket line it could;ve been warmer
I knew I should've brought me coat
And as for Stella well we tried to warn her
Now she's really got the goat

Stella should've known better, spoke to the wrong fella
Said it would be over by teatime
But you know a strike's all day
When you're losing a day's pay
So we'll see you on Funky Lol's picket line

It's got Funky Lol on it
Neil Gerrard wouldn't cross it
Some people did and noe their faces are red
Forget your dressed crab
When it's served by a scab
Better go for a curry instead

'Cos it's in the right place, it's at the right time
It's Funky Lol's picket line

Well I've been on loads of pickets, a demo or two
Seems we're protesting all of the time
But I've never been anywhere I should've been more
Than on Funky Lol's picket line

And don't forget Darren standing his ground
Chatting to the drivers, getting them to turn around
You know this story ends up in the Rose & Crown
When Funky Lol's picket finally closed down

'Cos it's in the right place, it's at the right time
It's Funky Lol's picket line

So it's hats off to Unison, the FBU
Hats off to the Chandlers and the UCU
It's a shame Stella had to find somewhere else to dine
But you can't cross Funky Lol's picket line

'Cos it's in the right place, it's at the right time
It's Funky Lol's picket line

It's got Funky Lol on it
Neil Gerrard wouldn't cross it
Some people did and noe their faces are red
Forget your dressed crab
When it's served by a scab
Better go for a curry instead

'Cos it's in the right place, it's at the right time
It's Funky Lol's picket line
