lyrics

It's not illegal if only rich people do it
Dolled up in their red coats on Boxing Day
It's not illegal to try to stop it
But the coppers only come to chase the sabs away
It's not illegal if the rich people say it
It's their parliament makin' up the laws
It's not illegal to make 'em stick to it
There's laws that they like, and there's laws that they ignore

'Cos Cameron supports the hunt
And Clarkson supports the hunt
And Farage supports the hunt
Well, we all knew......
Cruelty's a capitalist game
They treat human beings just the same
So if you're taking sides we've given ours a name:
We're on the side of the fox

It's not illegal if only rich people do it
Set the boys and the dogs after the fox gone to ground
It's not illegal if the rich people want it
Like kettling a protest, pushing students around
The rich man wants to set his hounds on you
But you're in Parliament Square, what a shame
He might have to settle for the Boys in Blue
But it's a chase on horseback just the same

'Cos Cameron supports the hunt
And Clarkson supports the hunt
And Farage supports the hunt
Well, we all knew......
Cruelty's a capitalist game
They treat human beings just the same
So if you're taking sides we've given ours a name:
We're on the side of the fox

The fox's scent or the people's dissent
The toffs will want to hunt it down
With or without lawful consent
In the field, in the forest, in the town
Make a stand
Raise your hand
Join the band
Make it stop

We're on the side of the fox
